In the process of porting some material from internal records as well as an
external svn storage to Launchpad, I would like to start a new project.
Basically, it would involve several bazaar branches:
1. The *.tex files for the text of a book as well as *.jpg and a .pdf files..
2. A completed frame analysis program that accompanies the book.
3. A new work on a finite element method program for engineering structural
nalysis that can use every type of element, implemented as a plugin. This new
mainline implements a simple and flexible plugin system.
My computer is organised with a data partition, mounted on /dat. The /dat
partition has Mail and Documents folders that are accessible from a Linux OS
booted on any other partition. A possible implementation of the project would
have a local repository in /dat/ak-repo directory with the above mentioned
three branches and may be some other branches. Each branch would have a
working version in /dat/Documents/xyz and all the work would take place there.
Occasionally it will be backed up in /dat/ak-repo/xyz. (ak-repo would be
initialised as a repository).
Less frequently all of /dat/ak-repo would be pushed to the repository on the
Does this look like a workable proposition? At what stage should I try to
register the project on Launchpad - asp or later?
Any and all advice will be gratefully received.
