This needs to be solved rather soon for Windows users/developers to take
advantage of the clean and seamless install provided by the plugin. On
Linux/Unix the install is behaving as expected given the SVN access to
rubyibm repository is smooth, but on Windows only an HTTP access is
accepted by the script\plugin.
The current solution in Rubyforge mentioned on the FAQ
cut it either in my view, as it implies a duplication of the repository.
Normally an SVN repository can easily be enabled for access with both SVN
(svnserve) and HTTP (apache2), but current Rubyforge portal doesn't seem
to allow, unless the plugin tree is prepared and uploaded to the project
So, for now Windows users/developers will need to stick with Gem install
(one manual step involved) or install from source and all other manual
steps described in the README:
1. Linux and Unix platforms:
REGISTER REPOSITORY and QUERY
$ ./script/plugin source
$ ./script/plugin list
2. Windows platforms:
REGISTER REPOSITORY and QUERY (not enabled yet @rubyibm.rubyforge.org)
D:\NewApp>ruby script\plugin source
D:\NewApp>ruby script\plugin list
P.S. the current project web location for HTTP plugin install is reachable
by browser, but script\plugin is yet happy with it:
Marlin: How do you know if they're ready?
Crush: Well, you never really know, but when THEY know, you know...
y'know? - <Finding Nemo>
