Miscellaneous administrivia for GDB developers

This page documents things like where to find cron scripts.

gdbadmin

Several scripts exist in the "ss" module of the "gdbadmin" cvs repository.

cvs -d $id@sourceware.org:/cvs/gdbadmin co ss

auto-merge from gcc

The "master" copy of several files live in the gcc source tree, and are periodically merged into the binutils-gdb repo.

These files are:

@files = ("Makefile.tpl", "Makefile.def", "Makefile.in",
          "configure.ac", "configure", "config", "install-sh",
          "missing", "depcomp", "config.guess", "config.sub",
          "compile", "ylwrap", "config.rpath", "ltgcc.m4",
          "ltmain.sh", "ltoptions.m4", "ltsugar.m4", "ltversion.m4",
          "lt~obsolete.m4");

$dir_rx = qr,^(libiberty|include|intl|libdecnumber)/,;

Files in "include" are then checked for existence in binutils-gdb.git.

Git Hooks

The binutils-gdb.git repository relies on a set of scripts (git "hooks") to perform a number of operations when users are trying to push to sourceware's binutils-gdb.git repository, such as rejecting merge commits on branches where this is forbidden, or sending email notifications, filing bugfixes in bugzilla, etc.

The scripts are provided by the githooks project, whose repository is hosted at gitorious: https://gitorious.org/githooks/

The documentation is available at: GitHooksUsersGuide
