Re: Bootstrapping nightly build from subversion

Why would this really be necessary? - Does the build script change that much that you need to automatically deliver it? - Why not store it in subversion but just have it delivered when you change it? - then your cron job can do exactly what you wanted
  deliver source, kick off the appropriate build with a makefile - Wouldn't this be easier than what you are trying to do?
  That's just an opinion - no answer to your actual question - sorry.

The source code is stored in subversion and I'd also like to store
the nightly build script there. This raises the issue of how to get
the nightly-build started.

I could have a small bootstrap script outside of subversion, invoked
by cron, which creates a working copy of the nightly-build script
(directory) and invokes it with appropriate arguments. The nightly-
build script would, in turn, create a working copy of the source and
then invoke the makefile etc.

Unfortunately the bootstrap script itself would have to live outside
of subversion, but I'd really like to have _all_ of our scripts under
revision control.

I'd be interested to hear how the members of this list have solved
this problem.
