Launchpad uses Bazaar2.0, I liked git for 1 day, but github doesnt  
offer open repositories, or open team projects, so it is back to the  
old faithful bazaar! Launchpad.net is very cool though.

We have two projects so far


To use - begin by making yourself a local working directory...

# mkdir Cuis2.0_trunk
# cd Cuis2.0_trunk

Runtime and One-Click template
Checkout the vm runtime - this is also a one-click image template for  
you to branch from, or help improve.

# bzr branch lp:~rodents/cuis/Cuis2.0vm.app

Incremental Kernel Development
Checkout the current Cuis2.0 kernel development repositories - these  
are the starting image and InstallStreams for incrementally moving the  
kernel forwards.

# bzr checkout --lightweight lp:~rodents/cuis/base
# bzr branch lp:~rodents/cuis/release
# bzr branch lp:~rodents/cuis/stable
# bzr branch lp:~rodents/cuis/unstable

1) cuis/base - the starting image to build on using InstallStreams

To check out Juan's original official release, rather than the most  
# bzr checkout --lightweight -r tag:Cuis2.0-0393 lp:~rodents/cuis/base  

2) cuis/release - the released updates (included in the release image)
This is intended to track Juan's official updates, which are tagged.
It also tracks ./base/Cuis2.0.1,image showing what it contains.

3) cuis/stable - branch & contribute back your tested updates here
In anticipation that these may get incorporated in the release by Juan.

4) unstable - branch & contribute your "being-tested" updates here

Unstable patches are not built by default.

The default search for updates is only 2 directories deep. In the  
unstable repository each contributed set of updates is published in a  
containing folder, and is 3 levels deep, escaping the standard search

"To apply a specific unstable update execute:"
InstallStreams updatesInstall: 'unstable/InstallStreams-testing'.

"To apply all unstable updates execute"
InstallStreams updatesInstall: 'unstable'.

Optional Kernel Innovations Development
InstallStreams providing optional kernel innovations may go in their  
own repositories, rather than release,stable, or unstable.

i.e. when you are ready to show the world...
# bzr push lp:~rodents/cuis/simple-namespaces
# bzr push lp:~rodents/cuis/pragmas
# bzr push lp:~rodents/cuis/nano-traits
# bzr push lp:~rodents/cuis/logging

Packages - Loadable with InstallStream
There is a separate project for sharing loadable packages.
In your working directory make a sub-directory for non-installed  
and checkout/branch your chosen packages there.

# mkdir packages
# cd packages
# bzr checkout lp:~rodents/cuis-packages/Installer

To manually load an individual package
InstallStream packagesInstall: 'packages/Installer'

To manually install all the packages you have checked out into ./ 
InstallStream packagesInstall: 'packages'

Generating the build
Juan's original release of Cuis2.0 does not appear to support the  
execution of a script on start up. So I have provided a modified image  
for you to begin with, this is called: (I should have called it 2.0.1- 
build or something less official looking, however if Juan doesn't  
mind, I will leave it as it is)


A simple script is provided in ./stable/build.sh which copies the ./ 
base directory into your working directory giving you a known starting  
point, and then launches the image with ./stable/build.st. (on mac  
only for the moment)

A second simple script is provided in ./unstable/build.sh which  
launches the image with ./unstable/build.st.
