Re: FTPing changes

Hi,
     One approach is to use the net::ftp library in Perl. You could
programmatically control the transfers/keep hosts in sync via ftp access.
This would allow the flexibility to choose specific
machines/directories/files to be updated/replicated. (Caveat: you'd need
those Perl modules to be installed/available.) In regards to your last
paragraph, you could use a subroutine which utilizes svnlook, svnmerge,
etc. take the data and put it in a hash map; then setup your ftp to
recursively take those diffs, checks to see if it is a file (with revision
number x) and if so sends it.
Cheers,
ST.

ps. Example of using svn commands in perl program:

$update = "/usr/local/bin/svn update --revision $revision";
        open (UPDATE, "$update |" );

Hi, why dont you try to 'mount' the ftp site [using Novel Netdrive on
Windows (c) or some kernel module on linux] as a directory and check-out
the revision into it. I'm not use about it because of file-lock
requirements and so but if it works, Subversion will do the dirty work
for you.

cheers,
