Subversion & Lint

Posted by John W. on May 16, 2006

Do you have plans to post interim releases on the Subversion repository?

Also - can we get your lint settings for FreeRTOS?

Thanks In Advance,
John W.

Hi John,

That is the intention. I currently have updates for the lwIP SAM7X demo, and the WizC demo, plus a few other things but have not yet added them to the repository as I'm in two minds as to what to do regarding version numbering. This is also the case for when the next formal release is made.

The problem is currently I change the version number at the top of every file. So:

+ If I add interim patches to subversion what version number should I place in the file. My preference is to actually scrub the version number from non formal files, or somehow mark it as release candidate. The problem with this is I will probable forget to go back and update the number properly ;-)

+ When updating to a new formal version, having the version number in each file will mean that every file in the repository will change, which removes some of the benefit of having a versioning system.


The other thing I am wanting to do is place 'unsupported' code in the repository so people can have access to it without emailing me directly. This code would not be in the .zip download.

Forgot to mention lint:

The original code was linted, and I kept this up as long as possible. As more and more compilers were added this became less and less useful and harder to maintain, so the usage was dropped. However I am making some developments in this area which we can discuss offline if you wish.

Yes - I agree that posting the unsupported stuff is a good idea. I can post my MSP430/IAR port w/demo. for instance.

Can you make a 'sandbox' so to speak that has code that we can use at our own peril? ;) I think having RC's is a good idea - we can pick it up and give it a try. I don't think this should kill your versioning system either.

I've sent you e-mail Re:Lint.
