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.
access is most convenient
for an initial install.
