[Zope] NEWBIE: Versions

2001-01-08 Thread Andy Gates

Hi folks,

Thanks to your help a few months back, I eventually got my first big 
Zope site up.  Now the marketing droids have let it mature and come 
back to me with a laundry-list of tweaks and changes.

'Tis time, think I, to use versioning: keep the live site running and 
work on a version with all changes, let the droids assess it, and then 
roll it live in one chunk.

Now, how do I do that, then?

Not sure if I undertand correctly your problem, but all you have to do is
to create a version object in the folder you want to modify (Add Version).
Then click on this object an connect to it. Then do all your modifications
as you would do it without a version, and let your droids view it. When
all is OK, click on your version object and click on save/discard, enter
some text to describe what you've done and click save.  Now you can
disconnect and eventually delete your version object.

hoping this will help

bye,
Jerome Alet

Andy,

Follow the instructions as J said and you won't go far wrong, *but* be aware
that if you have any external methods these are not exactly subject to the
versioning.

The problem happens when you restart Zope and the new code is read into both
the versioned and original 'External Method'.

 Congrats on getting a Zope site up and running (and working with
 marketing at all).

 Version is very simple. On the top root level add a version from the
 drop down and give it a name. I usually give it a capital name or
 start it with a number so it will float to the top of the list. Then
 go into it (click on it) and click on the "Start working in "
 button. This will put you into the version and anything you do will
 not be seen by anyone outside of the version. You can browse your
 sites, see the updates etc. When you are done with the changes and
 everything works just go back into the version, Leave it and click on
 the "save/discard" tab. At this point if you save your changes they
 go live, if you discard they are lost. If you drop a note in there
 you will see it in your undo log.

 Some notes:
 - You can have more than one version going but they cannot be working
 on the same item
 - A lot of people can join a version to work in it or view it
 - Try to make the name of your version match what you are doing and
 don't let changes sit in it too long or you will forget what you did

 Enjoy,
 J
