[Mythtv-soc] Starting out / SVN access

You should all have received an email from me giving you your username and 
password to log in to the MythTV SVN server.  Please do so and feel free to 
change your password or setup ssh keys/etc.

I've gone ahead and created branches for each of you to use:

ldunning - mythweather-revamp
jhunt - settings-revamp
mwoods - windows-port
jhurliman - mythmusic-ui
jmusits - mythexport
asoboleva - multiuser
kroot - auto-configuration
rrobertson - commflagging
adaniels - mythui
nstephan - mythweb-ui

You'll need to do the following to check out a source tree.  As an example:

svn co svn+ssh://<user>@svn.mythtv.org/var/lib/svn/branches/<branch>/mythtv 

Very similar to the instructions on http://svn.mythtv.org, except using 
svn+ssh.  You guys _do_ have full access to the source tree, but please stick 
to your branch.  On your initial checkout of the source, you'll likely be 
asked for your password 3 or 4 times.  Don't worry, it's just svn being 
weird. =)

Check out the links to the subversion book on the front page of 
http://svn.mythtv.org if you need help with SVN, or just ask on the IRC 
channel ( #mythtv  on irc.freenode.net as most of you have found out 
already ).  Oh, and, you might want to try and use the IRC channel as your 
first source for answers to questions - it's likely that there'll be at least 
a few people around that are capable of helping with source issues, and it's 
generally faster than email.  I'm there the majority of the day (Chutt), and  
Chris Pinkham (Captain_Murdoch) and Chris Petersen (xris) are generally 
available as well.  Daniel's never on, though.  Of course, if you don't get 
an answer there, you can also use this list, or the big (public) mythtv-dev 
list for questions.

One final thing:  I'd like a weekly status report from each student sent to 
this list.  Nothing in-depth, just a few sentences covering what you worked 
on in the previous week, and a sentence or two about what you're planning on 
doing in the next week.  Every Friday sound ok?

Any questions?
