3.11. Add a new file to the Subversion repository
The "usual" way to commit new files is described in Section 3.9, “Contribute your changes”. However, the following might be of
interest for the "normal" developer as well.
This action is only possible/allowed by the Wireshark core developers who
have write access to the Subversion repository. It is put in here, to have
all information in one place.
If you (as a core developer) need to add a file to the SVN repository,
then you need to perform the following steps:
Add the Wireshark boilerplate to the new file(s).
Add a line to each new file, containing the following text (case is
important, so don't write ID or id or iD):
Add the new file(s) to the repository:
svn add new_file
Set the line ending property to "native" for the new file(s):
svn propset svn:eol-style native new_file
Set version keyword to "Id" for the new file(s):
svn propset svn:keywords Id new_file
Commit your changes, including the added file(s).
svn commit new_file other_files_you_modified
Don't forget a brief description of the reason for the commit, so other
developers don't need to read the diff in order to know what has changed.
