[Zope-dev] zope.org SVN Sandbox area created for contributors

The Zope.org Subversion repository now has a sandbox area for 
collaboration by contributors.  This area has no constraints for 
checkins except those listed in the contributors agreement, and is 
intended to promote experimentation and easy, quick sharing.

Details and how-to are below.

After the discussion of demo packages 
and the constraints Jim mentioned for full-fledged inclusion in the 
Zope 3 repository 
we have set up a SVN sandbox for easy collaboration on prototypes and 
other experimentation by Zope contributors: /repos/main/Sandbox.

This lowers the bar for sharing significantly.  The demos discussed in 
the thread above could be checked in without further modification, for 
instance.  If they are modified to meet the standards for inclusion in 
the Zope 3 repository, development should move to the Zope 3 
repository, or, for large or stand-alone efforts, to their own 
top-level project.

The genesis of the sandbox came from Zope 3; however, developers using 
Zope 2 should not feel left out.  Zope 2 development is also welcome to 
use the Sandbox area.

Please see Jim's README in the top of the sandbox for his guidelines on 
use of the area: 

If you are a contributor who wants to set up your corner of the 
sandbox, you'll want to make a directory there:
svn mkdir -m "<checkin message>" svn+ssh://<zope.org user 
name>@svn.zope.org/repos/main/Sandbox/<your new sandbox name>

Replace the <checkin message>, <zope.org user name>, and <your new 
sandbox name>.  The sandbox name should have your name in it, the name 
of your project in it, or both.  For instance, my command was
svn mkdir -m "Making my corner of the sandbox" 

Subversion should reply with "Committed revision <number>."

Then check out your new sandbox:
svn co svn+ssh://<your user name>@svn.zope.org/repos/main/Sandbox/<your 
new sandbox name> <local name on your machine for the checkout>

For instance, my command was
svn co svn+ssh://poster@svn.zope.org/repos/main/Sandbox/poster sandbox

Further Subversion information is available in the zope.org Subversion 

Please use and enjoy!
