The branch release_eta_carinea_rc1 (so badly named redface) is now the CVS branch for 1.7.x. Note that the 1.7.x branch is strictly for bugfixes. All new features and changes must be committed to CVS HEAD and not the release_eta_carinea_rc1 branch. Fixes committed to the 1.7.x branch will be merged into HEAD.

Below are instructions for development on the 1.7.x branch. You can find the release process page here: ReleaseProcess173.

Checking out latest 1.7.x code

cvs co -r release_eta_carinea_rc1 tiki
This will place the latest 1.7.x code in a directory named "tiki".

Updating to latest 1.7.x code

cd tiki
cvs -q update -d -r release_eta_carinea_rc1
Beware of conflicts. It may be easier to simply checkout a fresh copy of the code

Committing bugfixes

cd tiki
cvs ci
There is no need to specify the branch if you checked out using the instructions above

Remember to set your ENV variables correctly:
export CVS_RSH=ssh
export CVSROOT=:ext:youraccount@cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/tikiwiki
