I think communitypkg pops up a window on my machine asking for commit
message. I was using it, but just with the short cryptic messages Loui
mentioned. I promise I will change this

Maybe it's worth to express it in the documentation/wiki if it's not
described at this momment, if you feel it useful.

Yeah I'd say for package upgrades that should be enough. When there are
bug fixes or other changes a more descriptive commit message would be
appreciated.

I've been using my own scripts to handle build->upload->commit. I'll
tweak those to prompt for commit messages instead of appending whatever
default message I've been using.

communitypkg doesn't prompt for a message. I stopped using it during
the cvs -> svn transition, because I didn't have a version that used
svn. The nice thing about calling svn commit directly is that it prompts
you for a commit message, and even spawns an editor so you can write it.
There is no "default".
Yay for doing things by hand!

Why? What is wrong with the scripts in devtools? It is just
'makechrootpkg' followed by 'communitypkg "message"'.



You are lucky Aaron is on holiday because people not using those scripts
is one of his pet peeves.

Hrm. Looks like I have a retraction / apology to make!
The default message went away from communitypkg months ago. Just checked.

I'm going to go back to using the scripts; wouldn't want to
be a target in anyone's crosshairs *grin*!

I wrote my own during the transition before the old ones were updated
to handle SVN. They plug into the system which I use to update the
projects on my site and they work as expected. There's no reason not to
use them right now.

Now stop bumping this so it can get buried before
I have to dodge falling cars. :P
