Samba HowTo Guide
Prev Home Next

Accessing the Samba Sources via rsync and ftp also exports unpacked copies of most parts of the Subversion tree at the Samba pserver location and also via anonymous rsync at the Samba rsync server location. I recommend using rsync rather than ftp, because rsync is capable of compressing data streams, but it is also more useful than FTP because during a partial update it will transfer only the data that is missing plus a small overhead. See the rsync home page for more info on rsync.

The disadvantage of the unpacked trees is that they do not support automatic merging of local changes as Subversion does. rsync access is most convenient for an initial install.
