@derobert - another query, do you know if there is a way to parse the svn log to know which commits have patches.
I tried $] svn log | grep patch and while it gives those patches as commit messages, it doesn't tell the revision number/commit number.

@shirish svn log has an --xml option...
 
@derobert can you extrapolate what do you mean by svn log has an --xml option. Could you share an e.g. or two as to how's that useful or can be useful ?
 
@shirish well, it can output in XML. That's intended to be parsed.
 
/me confesses of being a bit more git aware than svn aware.
 
you can also do svn log on a single directory, if all the patches are in one directory
(sorry, half paying attention, playing Minecraft :-) )
 
@derobert no problems, as and when you finish minecraft, if possible using our netspeed directory, if you could figure out how this could be done would be done, would just make it easier to understand.

@shirish Power went out, and I went to sleep. :-)
 
Faheem, no issues, have lived through that as well :)
If you read above, the only issue seems to be if there is a way to grep through svn log commit messages.
making sure that revision number is also known . Dunno if this is possible or not.
 
@shirish Ok. You still use svn?
 
Faheem, no but for the use-case of debian-gnome, they still use svn . Lot of people in debian have moved onto git.
but for this team, I think because of the history of the 100-150 odd source packages over 10+ years and all residing in one giant repository, they have been unable to make a switch to git.
the debian-mate has done it much better but it's a smaller team as well.
 
@shirish I see.
BTW, was just thinking about your friend Praveen the Pirate. When he came to see me, he looked at my browser, which is Chromium, and said, that's a lot of tabs.
He was right. And that is still the case.
@shirish if Anthony helped with your blog post you should acknowledge him. It's not compulsory, but it is polite.

Q: Ubuntu (14.10, 14.04) Graphics rendering issues with nvidia 331, 346 when using two screens at once (built in and external)

phoenixI bought a new dell laptop ( inspiron 15 3000 series ) with 2 gb nvidia geforce 117m. It shipped with ubuntu 14.04. That was very choppy and slow. I installed nvidia 346.47 ( from the nvidia website). This caused my lightdm to stop working. Next time i tried the same thing and my screen froze. I...
