cvs up -Pd(prune removed dirs, add new dirs), you will get everything from the oacs-5-0 branch. This includes all packages and all contrib (basically everything but .LRN). You can't do cvs up if you got the tarball, but you can Install From Repository, and the repository on openacs.org was built yesterday from oacs-5-0.
Only the core got a real release management process. I am compiling a list of broken packages which I will turn into bugs (Pri 1/Sev 1 - does not install - for individual packages). So far, about 10% of packages don't install from auto-installer due to broken dependency data, and another 20% or 30% break on install or don't work.
- I've updated the CVS Checkout instructions. We need to figure out the rules for developing packages (for example, all work on contrib modules should only happen in HEAD, what are the criteria for releasing 'standard' packages and who does the code work and the Release Management work, etc).
- We need to test out all of the existing packages against stock 5.0.0. Everyone is welcome to play with the new Demo Server, and if you want an admin account to test package installs just let me know.
