[PATCH] SVN's entry at FSF/UNESCO Free Software Directory

From: Jani Averbach <jaa_at_jaa.iki.fi>
Date: 2004-09-03 19:21:29 CEST


At the moment Subversion's Directory entry gives really anemic
impression, and besides that, it also gives wrong information (1.0.4
marked as beta and indirectly as the latest stable version).

So, I think it might be a good idea to contact
<bug-directory@gnu.org>, and ask them to make an update to the
Subversion's entry.

Another options is to wait until 1.1 is out of the door.

I made an initial patch for that reason, and it is located at the end
of this mail. There is a little doc how you could update/correct/etc.
Directory's entries at here <http://directory.fsf.org/help/directory.html>.

You could take a look of the current situation from here:

BR, Jani

P.S. I don't know for sure and didn't find any docs, what kind of
markup is valid for Directory, but by peering others entries, I guessed
that this should be OK.

P.P.S. You could check out directory's entries with the following
instruction set:

export CVS_RSH="ssh"
cvs -z3 -d:ext:anoncvs@savannah.gnu.org:/cvsroot/directory co directory
