NAME

       aedir - aegis directory structures

DESCRIPTION

       The project directory structure is dictated by aegis at the top level,
       but is completely under the project’s control from various points below
       the top level.

       The project directory has the following contents
              project/
                      baseline/
                              aegis.conf
                              ...project specific...
                              test/
                                      [0-9][0-9]/
                                              t[0-9][0-9][0-9][0-9]a.sh
                                              t[0-9][0-9][0-9][0-9]m.sh
                      history/
                              ...echo of baseline...
                      delta.[0-9][0-9][0-9]/
                              ...echo of baseline...
                      info/
                              state
                              change/
                                      [0-9]/
                                              [0-9][0-9][0-9]

       The directory is structured in this way so that it is possible to pick
       an entire project up off the disk, and be confident that you got it
       all.

       The location of the root of this tree is configurable, and may even be
       changed during the life of a project.

       The contents of the baseline subdirectory, other than those given, are
       defined by the project, and not dictated by aegis.

       The contents of the delta.NNN directory, when it exists, are an image
       of the baseline directory.  It is frequently linked with the baseline,
       rather than a copy of it; see the link_integration_directory field
       description in aepconf(5) for more information.

       The contents of the history contains the edit histories of the baseline
       directory, and is in all other ways an image of it.  Note that baseline
       always contains the latest source; the history directory is just
       history.  The actual files in the history directory tree will not
       always have names the same as those in the baseline; compare the
       methods used by SCCS and RCS.

       The contents of the baseline/test directory are the tests which are
       created by changes.  Test histories are also stored in the history
       subdirectory.  Tests are treated as project source.

       The edit histories are separated out to simplify the task of taking a
       "snapshot" of the source of a project, without airing all the dirty
       laundry.

       The baseline directory always contains the latest source, and so the
       history directory need not be readily accessible, because the build
       mechanism (something like make(1), but preferably better) does not need
       to know anything about it.  Similarly for tests.

       The baseline/aegis.conf file is used to tell aegis everything else it
       needs to know about a project.  See aepconf(5) for more information.
       This file  is a source file of the project, and is treated in the same
       way as all source files.  The name of this file is not mandatory.
