cvsup/sup/www list.cvs.en list.cvs.text
Back out the addition of "doc-all/list.cvs.en", "www/list.cvs.en",
and "www/list.cvs.text". Sorry Wolfram, I hope you don't hate me
for this! When I looked at it closely, I found some bugs, and more
importantly, the structure of the new additions was not consistent
with the existing organization of the collections.
The main bug was that there were multiple occurrances of "super=xxx"
in the releases files. Only one is allowed. The structural problems
were as follows.
These should have been new collections, rather than variant releases
of existing collections. We use variant releases to distinguish
between different repositories (e.g., /home/ncvs vs. /home/lite2),
and we use collections to distinguish between different subsets.
Subcollections should not overlap each other. But "www/cvs.en"
and "www/cvs.text", for example, overlapped partially. In general,
the collections should be organized into a pure tree structure.
I don't think it's appropriate to create a special collection or
release just to eliminate the www image files. Clients who don't
want the images should use "refuse" files. A stronger case could
be made for separating out the Japanese versions, though I am not
yet convinced we should do that either. We don't do it for Japanese
text in other parts of the tree, and we don't do it for the pc98
stuff either. Again, these files are easy for clients to block in
their "refuse" files.
