Milestones and Versions

When entering tickets, you will be asked to provide a version and a milestone.

The TRAC documentation defines these terms as

  • Version - Version of the project that this ticket pertains to.
  • Milestone - When this issue should be resolved at the latest.

For new tickets, the version will default to current Danis506.ADD version (i.e. 1.8.7). If you are reporting for some other version, please override the default. If you are opening the ticket for testcase release, please note the testcase version in the ticket summary.

The milestone will default to the next scheduled Danis506.ADD version release (i.e. 1.8.8).

Generally, once a ticket is opened, the version should not be changed. If the issue is not resolved, the milestone will be changed to reflect when the ticket is expected to be resolved.

Getting the sources

In addition to browsing the sources here, you can check out the sources with your favorite subversion client.

Keep in mind that, unlike cvs, tags and branches are ordinary directories in subversion. With the typical subversion respository layout, it is rather easy to checkout more than you probably intend to. To pull just the trunk version, use something like

mkdir danis506_workspace
cd danis506_workspace
svn checkout trunk

To update your workspace with the current repository content, use

cd dani506_workspace\trunk
svn update

You can also uses the --depth=files option to control which files subversion will add to your workspace.
