{Spam?} [ANN] PatchServer 0.2a

Hi all,

    Do you write patches for different programs? Don't you know where to put
them in so it's actually easy to view the interesting ones? Does it bother you
not knowing which ones are already applied upstream, or which version the
apply cleanly to? Does it bother you not being able to easily publish and
share them?

    Let me introduce... the PatchServer!

    PatchServer is a small Ruby on Rails app designed to store patches: you
upload them to the server, and then you can:

    - View their associated data, like the upstream version they're written
      for, the program they apply to, description and related patches
    - View them color-highlighted! (thanks to Jamis Buck's Syntax library)
    - View their history (yes, you can have several versions of the same
      patch)
    - View all the patches for a given program, all the unapplied ones
    - Search your patches
    - Subscribe to a general RSS feed or to per-program RSS feeds
    - And more!

It is still rough on the edges, but it's usable and I will like to receive
feedback from interested parties. I have just registered the project in
RubyForge, as "patch-server", so you have:

    Homepage: http://patch-server.rubyforge.org/
    Download: http://rubyforge.org/frs/?group_id=2100
    RubyForge homepage: http://rubyforge.org/projects/patch-server

The code is in Darcs, at http://www.demiurgo.org/darcs/patch_server/ , so
getting it is a matter of:

    darcs get http://www.demiurgo.org/darcs/patch_server/

Some screenshots are available at

I find it quite amusing that you ask people to send their patches for
this by email using the "darcs send" command.

Well, merits of email patches versus direct repository patching
aside, `darcs send --to="dev-list@lists.project.org"` is perfectly
valid :slight_smile:

    Give me a break, there is no public PatchServer yet :slight_smile: (and I'm not going
to ask anybody to setup a public PatchServer just to send me patches)

    Finally, I'm not sure that sharing patches for PatchServer is such a big
deal right now, taking into account that it has like.... 0 users :slight_smile: (not
counting myself)
