Tim, all, After a hiatus, I was updating my tde repos to see how horribly screwed I am attempting to build on Arch after their LSB and systemd changes. Pulling head I noted several new branch and tag names. I know what they are, but they look like they have added origin as a path component to 3.5.13-sru, etc.. Specifically, I saw: From http://scm.trinitydesktop.org/scm/git/tde + 8303efe...6fd6395 master -> origin/master (forced update) * [new branch] v3.5.13-sru -> origin/v3.5.13-sru So it looks like v3.5.13-sru is now origin/v3.5.13-sru. The question that brought up was "do I need to modify any of the scripts I use that update my local git repo to handle the 'origin/v3.5.13-sru' designation, or will the change be handled by the .gitmodule data? Additionally, there were new tags noted: ec1d9d9..9ec64b2 master -> origin/master 5ae82a0..169c39a v3.5.13-sru -> origin/v3.5.13-sru * [new tag] v22.214.171.124 -> v126.96.36.199 * [new tag] v188.8.131.52 -> v184.108.40.206 Same question, is there anything I would need to change in my existing checkout scripts such as: git submodule foreach --recursive "git checkout v3.5.13-sru" to reflect the new branch or tag designations? Like: git submodule foreach --recursive "git checkout origin/v3.5.13-sru" Also, if there are any new links or pointers for building 3.5.13 on bleeding edge distros like Arch, I would appreciate them as well. What is the state of HAL requirements? I presume it is still fully required in 3.5.13, but what about 14? I will be building 3.5.13, so I'll start by checking on the state of HAL in the Arch user repository. Thanks for any help you can give :) -- David C. Rankin, J.D.,P.E.
