Description

The "update" mode in the release importer is described in Relax ticket #1095 and works by only updating annotations for items that are already existing and part of an existing release (=project).

The scripts that are created by the release exporter need similar functionality. Basically:

  • The mkdirs.sh script should only create directories if they also already exists in another release directory. This other directory should be specified as a parameter. If no other directory is specified, a full directory structure is created.
  • The mklinks.sh script should only create links if they also already exists in another release directory (as a link or file). This other directory should be specified as a parameter. If no other directory is specified, all links are created.
  • The rsync.sh script is not needed in "update" mode so no changes are required.

New scripts are now created. The mkdirs.sh and mklinks.sh scripts now has support for specifying a second parameter that should be the path to the top-level directory of an existing release. Examples:

# Create a full release
./mkdirs.sh
./mklinks.sh
./rsync.sh

# Create release 1.1 as an update to 1.0
# No rsync in this case
./mkdirs.sh ../1.1 ../1.0
./mklinks.sh ../1.1 ../1.0

The rsync.sh script had abug due to an incorrectly named variable.

The README has been updated with more information and examples.
