I have made the voyage to 3.0 but find there's no longer an ocvs shipped
in the latest release. While I can fetch this, and cvswrap (which I
believe is needed to be in /Developer/... path) from 2.x, don't we want
to tread .nib 'files' as single objects? (I hope we still want/need to)
So just what are your choices when coming from a 2.x ocvs with wrappers
style development platform?
1. somehow hack with ocvs bits to work [yuck] and stay on 3.0
2. migrate to SubVersion or ? (which supports 'wrappers' style)
(this doesn't appear trivial judging by the cvs2svn, svnadmin, etc
route described in http://www.apache.org/dev/cvs2svn.html, or
3. fall back and stay on 2.5 with ocvs
4. chuck SCM altogether in 3.0 for now.
5. Forget about wrappers, just check in nibs as directories.
I've been using CVS (and now svn*) for years without wrapping nibs.
They're just directories containing a small number of text or binary
files. There's no need to treat it specially. There used to be problems
with Interface Builder destroying the CVS or .svn directories in the nibs
when saving, but I don't believe that has been a problem since 10.2 or so.
* Having used both, I highly recommend switching to svn when you can. It's
not a revolution but it fixes a lot of annoying problems with CVS and in
general is much nicer to use. Some people will disagree but that seems to
be somewhat rare. Converting my CVS repository was a bit painful but not
too bad. I think the only big problem I had was that I had an "Icon\r"
file checked directly into the repository (I don't know why, as the
resource fork wouldn't have been preserved) and svn absolutely refused to
deal with the \r character. I ended up having to take it out of the
repository altogether before I could convert it.
