How to keep track of recent WDLXTV development

PostPosted: Thu Dec 02, 2010 11:04 am

Since it seems it is a subject of concern for some people lately, I thought I'd post a few useful links here to help people monitor development.

But first, an introduction: WDLXTV development is done by a group of people (usually identified by an orange name on these forums). When we fix/add something, we post it on a server that contains what is called a code repository. That server (referred to as SVN server, as it runs the SubVersioN software) contains the current snapshot of work-in-progress.

One requirement for us devs when we commit code to it is to provide a description of what the changes are for. Those comments can easily be viewed, giving you a direct view into active (i.e. finished and working) development.

The complete list of SVN repositories:
http://svn.wdlxtv.com/?

To view the changes related to WDLXTV Live specifically:
http://svn.wdlxtv.com/log.php?repname=wdlxtv-live&path=%2Ftrunk%2F&isdir=1&

To view the changes related to UMSP:
http://svn.wdlxtv.com/log.php?repname=UMSP&path=%2F&isdir=1&

To view the changes related to WDTVExt plugins:
http://svn.wdlxtv.com/listing.php?repname=wdtvext-plugins

WDTVExt development itself doesn't appear on the SVN as it's done by a programmer not directly part of the WDLXTV development - his work gets added by b-rad/recliq when it's done.

To look further back in time, change the number of entries shown on the left side (it defaults to the 40 most recent entries max).

In general, we post only finished stuff there (or at least stuff in a usable state, or in need for wider testing). That's why you don't see there anything related to my recent work (last week) on Samba 3.5.1, for example. We occasionally experiment with code and features, and end up scrapping them because they don't work as expected, or cause other issues that aren't worth it. But it shows you how work is progressing in a concrete sense.

WDLXTV Live is now at revision 522 on the SVN (at the time of this post). 0.4.3.1 was released based on revision 395. That means no less than 127 changes were committed to the SVN since then specific to WDLXTV.

More technically-inclined users can run a snapshot of WDLXTV taken from the SVN. Details are here:
http://forum.wdlxtv.com/viewtopic.php?f=43&t=228 . Keep in mind that SVN snapshots will always be work-in-progress. Sometimes there can be new annoying critters in these snapshots.

good idea merlin, changing to sticky for now

and as for development on samba, I'm still surprised we've got nobody open to testing to

Thanks for this I have svn repositery as an rss subscription in my google reader. :D
And after seeing so much work been done and I really wanted to try it but with no new firmware releases I was just going to ask how to load the svn firmware.
But from the looks of it I need at least a linux installation to format my drive to ext3.
I will play around with it this weekend.
Downloading from the svn is bit of a pain can someone please rar the current svn snapshot and upload to rapidshare.

@dopedangel,

It's not a good idea to have svn snapshots available for download by any user,
in general svn commits are stable, but they are works in progress and sometimes the changes made in svn will produce an unusable device

for anybody with the know how, instructions on how to download svn snapshot are here:

if you're really determined you can do it right inside wdlxtv, as all the necessary utilities are included. My svn systems are 2GB SD cards in readers, doesn't take much.

wdlxtv is a homebrew firmware developed for the WDTV line of products from Western Digital. Its main goal is to add new features on top of what is currently provided by WD like streaming, Bittorrent, movie sheets, , from external online sources, and more.
