[17:00:43] <lanica> Hello all
[17:02:31] <lanica> I've got the PocketPC port working ... but I need to get into the CVS codebase somehow ...
[17:02:36] <lanica> Anyone know who I need to contact?
[17:10:35] <-- shza has left IRC ()
[17:51:16] <RadoS> lanica, for what?
[17:52:40] <wjp> what do you mean by 'into'?
[17:57:21] <lanica> As in, take the code that I have and put it on Exult's CVS server so that others may download it with the normal exult-cvs.tar.gz that can be downloaded from http://exult.sourceforge.net
[17:59:29] <lanica> If you have succesfully ported Exult to a platform not listed here, PLEASE drop us a note, telling which OS, compiler etc. you used. Even better would be if you submit to us the changes that were necessary to get it to run so we can incorporate them into future releases, and add instructions to the README.
[17:59:38] <lanica> Thats from http://exult.sourceforge.net/download.php
[17:59:43] <lanica> So where exactly do I submit the changes?
[18:01:44] <lanica> Or how do I become a part of the project?
[18:01:53] <RadoS> lanica, there are several ways, order is random: a) SF patch- or bug-tracker, b) mailing list, c) ask some people here ;), d) mail private to whoever wrote that passage. ;)
[18:02:54] <lanica> Hmm...I wasn't aware of a mailing list :)
[18:03:09] <lanica> I've posted some messages on the forum
[18:03:13] <lanica> http://exult.sourceforge.net/forum/read.php?f=1&i=145294&t=145294
[18:03:18] <lanica> http://exult.sourceforge.net/forum/read.php?f=1&i=144166&t=144166
[18:04:22] <RadoS> lanica, if the patch is big, don't put it on ML.
[18:05:18] <lanica> Mmm. I haven't generated a patch yet. It was mostly a lot of small changes.
[18:06:17] <lanica> Heh...sourceforge just went down for maintenance
[18:06:40] <lanica> and now a blank page....
[18:17:28] <wjp> best way would be to produce a patch and post it to our SF patch tracker, together with a note to the mailing list describing the changes (in broad terms)
[18:17:38] <wjp> very cool that you got it working, by the way
[18:17:54] <wjp> quite a few users have been asking for a PocketPC port
[18:17:56] <lanica> Ok. I'm working on the SF patch right now :)
[18:18:07] <lanica> And I'll post to the ML
[18:18:28] <lanica> Yeah..I thought it was cool too :) Ultima7 in my pocket! :)
[18:18:36] <lanica> And thanks.
[18:21:00] <wjp> be sure to mention things like which compiler you use, which platform(s) you target exactly and what version of exult you started from
[18:21:30] <lanica> Ok, thanks for the tips.
[18:23:46] <lanica> Is there an EASY way to generate a patch within windows?
[18:24:04] <lanica> eh...nevermind...I'll google :)
[18:24:30] <wjp> your cvs client might be able to do a patch from cvs
[18:26:16] <lanica> Ahh.
