GNOME SVN and jhbuild

If you’re wondering how to move your GNOME jhbuild from CVS now that the SVN migration has happened … here’s what I had to do.

  • Checkout jhbuild from SVN:
      $> mkdir -p /gnome/head/svn && cd /gnome/head/svn
      $> svn co svn+ssh://markmc@svn.gnome.org/svn/jhbuild/trunk jhbuild
      $> make install
    
  • Update ~/.jhbuildrc so that e.g.
      repos['svn.gnome.org'] = 'svn+ssh://markmc@svn.gnome.org/svn/'
      checkoutdir = '/gnome/head/svn'
    
  • Copy /gnome/head/cvs/pkgs to /gnome/head/svn/pkgs so that you won’t have to download as many new tarballs
  • Run jhbuild build

Note, this is with the gnome-2.18 moduleset. Things are still a little in flux right now.
