good news for who’s using sbopkg with sbo-git as a repository.
tnx to 55020 for the setup instructions:
I’m improving my git-fu and now, using binary patching, I will update directly the -current branch without recreating.
that means, basically, that you can sync it from inside sbopkg with no need to delete/reset old checked out git files. 🙂
this will work for you if you have checked last time my 20100425 commit, if not you have to
one last time (I hope :P)
I’ve setup a file .gitattributes in the root of the git repository with this content
then i diffed the two latest master commits
then I switched to branch “current”.
here I checked if some of the updated slackbuilds matched the ones I’m mantaining and to avoid confilcts applying the patch from master I restored their state in the tree at the one they have on master before last update: in this specific case only gpac was affected
after that I applied the patch from master into this branch
then I removed the .gitattributes file and added new files
and then I commited
results are shown in the SBo-git homepage.
I’ll try to update the current branch this way from now on. 🙂
