How do you feel about automating that? We could make the script figure
out the latest stable version easily enough:
DIST_RELEASE_URL = 'https://dist.apache.org/repos/dist/release/subversion'
SVN = 'svn'
# Get all current release files
filenames = subprocess.check_output([SVN, 'list', DIST_RELEASE_URL]).decode().splitlines()
# Get filenames of GA releases only, excluding prereleases
filenames = map(re.compile(r'^subversion-(?P<major>\d+)\.(?P<minor>\d+)\.(?P<patch>\d+)\.tar\.gz\.asc$').match, filenames)
f = lambda matchobj, groupname: int(matchobj.group(groupname))
newest_stable_version = max([
(f(m, 'major'), f(m, 'minor'), f(m, 'patch'))
for m in filenames if m
(This prints «(1, 12, 2)» currently.)
Then we wouldn't need the cron job to 'cd', and wouldn't need the
'latest' symlink at all.
Thanks for fixing this, Julian.
