Subject: Re: [dita-help] DHTG updates and build...

Forwarding message from Stan, who seems to be unable to post to the list.

-------- Original Message --------

Hi --

I second Scott's encouragement to jump into the deep end with updating our DITA Help Technologies Guide topics this week. I'll do a build this Friday and circulate/post the results.

If your PC/Mac/workstation consumes desktop configs the way mine does, you may have lost the basic connect in information for adding the DHTG SVN repository to your local system.

Kris Eberlein worked a great summary of the "How do I get going with SVN and OASIS respositories" a while back.Here's her overview (http://wiki.oasis-open.org/dita/TortoiseSVN).

Otherwise, here's the quick-and-dirty version:

1. Download and install some version of Subversion (SVN).

    - FWIW ... many people have good luck with TortoiseSVN (http://tortoisesvn.net/).

2. Create local folder (any name). It must be empty.

3. Right-click that folder icon and choose TortoiseSVN -> Create repository here.

4. Right-click again and choose SVN Checkout . . .

5. Paste the following URL into the "URL of repository" text box ...


6. Click OK to download the DHTG to this new local repository folder.

7. Edit - create - rename - delete files.

8. Choose SVN Commit . . . to check in your changes.

Rock and roll!

As decided in our last meeting, there will be a build of the DHTG this Friday (thanks Stan!). We're hoping to encourage everyone to update one or more of their assigned topics before this date so we can review the guide in all its glory.

What would be ideal is if everyone can at least check out and check back in a topic so we know that the SVN process isn't one of the stumbling blocks in moving forward with this work. If you find that you're having trouble with the check out/in process let us know so we can get that resolved.

Stan .. where was that document that provided tips on this? Maybe you can send it out to the list in case someone needs that?

Our next meeting is scheduled for the Nov 21 .. hope to see you all there!
