       cvs-autoreleasedeb.conf - Configuration for cvs-autoreleasedeb




       The cvs-autoreleasedeb configuration file is writed in XML, because XML is easy to work
       with multiple-level data, but it's already in the TODO list to use a better format.

       As a good XML file, this config file has the following header.

         <?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>
         <!DOCTYPE cvs-autoreleasedeb [
         <!ELEMENT sources (server)+>
         <!ELEMENT server (package)+>
         <!ATTLIST server
          name CDATA #REQUIRED
          options CDATA #REQUIRED>
         <!ELEMENT package (option)+>
         <!ATTLIST package
          name CDATA #REQUIRED
          cvsroot CDATA #REQUIRED
          prefix CDATA #REQUIRED
          tag CDATA #REQUIRED>
         <!ELEMENT option EMPTY>
         <!ATTLIST option
          name CDATA #REQUIRED
          value CDATA #REQUIRED>

       Which, in fact, tells the structure of the XML file. But in the case you don't know XML,
       this header tells that, in the sources, you have servers, which have packages, which have
       options. A server has the "name" and the "option" properies, a package has "name",
       "cvsroot", "prefix" and "tag" properties and an option has "name" and "value" property.

       Before explaining how the options affects the script, you must know that in the current
       version, all the tags and properties MUST be lowercase (it's already on the TODO list).



       This is the master section, tells what server to dupload. Actually, the "name" property of
       the server is used as the "--to" parameter to dupload. Packages are declared inside
       servers. Also, the "options" property tells aditional parameters to cvs-buildpackage for
       every package in this server.


       The package itself, the "name" property is used as the module name for cvs checkout. The
       "cvsroot" property is passed to cvs as the CVSROOT and the "prefix" is placed before the
       module name, used if your package is inside some other directory than the cvs root.
       Optionally, you can inform a tag to checkout the sources from.


       Specify an option to a package.  The following options are accepted and increment the
       following text to the cvs-buildpackage command: binary-source = 1: "-b"


       In the case you still didn't understand the config file, follows an example:

         <server name="intern">
           <package name="cvs-autoreleasedeb" cvsroot=":pserver:ruoso@ozonio:/var/cvs" prefix="">
           <package name="someotherpackage" cvsroot=":pserver:ruoso@ozonio:/var/cvs" prefix="">
             <option name="binary-source" value="1"/>


       cvs-buildpackage(1), cvs(1), cvs-autoreleasedeb(1), dupload(1)
