Mainline kernel development takes a long time, even if changes are small, and DCCP is in some respects not a finished and fully tested protocol: to enable testing without the constraints of mainline development, a DCCP test tree has been set up - with patches taken from this list.
People are encouraged to use this tree and report any findings and make suggestions. You can pull the entire tree but remember that git kernel sources are in the order of several hundred megabytes. Here are some suggestions to reduce the download size - and time. To pull the entire tree [expensive], use git clone git://eden-feed.erg.abdn.ac.uk/dccp_exp.git my_dccp Much better, if you already have a linux git tree e.g. in /usr/src/linux-2.6, use git clone --reference /usr/src/linux-2.6 git://eden-feed.erg.abdn.ac.uk/dccp_exp my_dccp Even better: only pull the relevant `dccp' subtree: --------------------------------------------------- 1. The experimental tree is updated every work day from David Miller's tree it is a good idea to take an up-to-date copy first: git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/davem/net-2.6 2. chdir into your up-to-date git repository 3. create a subtree `dccp' using the commands git checkout -b dccp master 4. pull the experimental DCCP tree into this branch using git pull git://eden-feed.erg.abdn.ac.uk/dccp_exp.git dccp Alternative way: ---------------- 1. clone the master branch git clone --reference davem-2.6 git://eden-feed.erg.abdn.ac.uk/dccp_exp This will only give you `origin', which is taken from the David Miller tree. 2. Add (all important) the dccp tree: git remote add dccp git://eden-feed.erg.abdn.ac.uk/dccp_exp git remote show dccp 3. To track recent changes, do git remote update - To unsubscribe from this list: send the line "unsubscribe dccp" in the body of a message to [EMAIL PROTECTED] More majordomo info at http://vger.kernel.org/majordomo-info.html
