PLEASE NOTE THAT THE CVS REPOSITORY CURRENTLY LAGS A LONG WAY BEHIND THE PUBLISHED TARBALLS. THIS NOTE WILL BE REMOVED ONCE IT HAS BEEN BROUGHT UP TO DATE.

CVS

The OMI source  is installed in a CVS repository created on The Open Group site with open anonymous checkout access and write/checkin access to members of the OMI project team.

The OMI source tree can be found at the following Open Group CVS server;

         cvs.opengroup.org:/cvs/OMI

using the password authenticating server option (pserve).

Anonymous access for read is with the name and password "anon" as follows:

         CVSROOT=:pserver:anon@cvs.opengroup.org:/cvs/OMI

         When requested, enter the password "anon"

The source tree is in the directory omi. To check out the complete OMI  source tree just type:

         cvs co omi

A OMI directory will be created under your the current directory and populated with the complete source tree and documentation. To get the latest updates after a checkout just type this from OMI root:

         cvs update -d


Active contributors to OMI have write access to the CVS repository. If you are interested in contributing back to the OMI project, (i.e. write (checkin) access to CVS) please request access from Martin Kirk.

Keep in mind that OMI is in development today and the CVS is the state of the current work, not a release.

OMI Release Versions in CVS

We use CVS tags to define versions of OMI.  Each release is represented by a tag and in the future, stable interim versions will also be represented by the tag "stable". Thus, the source code for version 0.8 of the complete source and documentation tree is represented by the tag version_0_8.

Checkout without tags gets the latest version and may not be stable.

Getting and Installing CVS

CVS already exists on Linux systems and is available for Windows based systems from http://www.cvshome.org.  Help on the use of CVS is available from the same site. For those getting started, we recommend the book "Open Source Development with CVS" by Karl Fogel.  Parts of this book are available in PDF form at http://cvsbook.red-bean.com/.

Hints and tips on the use of CVS

The following is a set of informal hints and tips on the use of CVS. This list will grow as we answer more user questions and problem.

1. Updating.  Don't forget the -d parameter (cvs update -d). Without this option you do not pick up new directories installed in the repository.

2. If you simply want to see differences, the cvs command "cvs -nq update -d" will give a lost of all components that are different between the local modules and the repository.

The CVS repository is also available using the CVSweb interface.
