# Copyright (C) GemStone Systems, Inc. 2010.
# Name -
# Purpose - Automatically update to a new version of GemStone
# in an existing git repository cloned from MagLev on github.
# Be both verbose and idempotent, so we can easily diagnose
# any problems.
# $Id:$
# Description:
# Updates GemStone to a version corresponsing to $MAGLEV_HOME/version.txt
# Safe to run multiple times. Only saves one prior backup repository though.
# Actions:
# Download the GemStone archive into the parent directory
# Uncompress the GemStone archive in the parent directory
# Update the gemstone link to point to the new GemStone
# Backup any existing 'maglev' repository
# Wipeout any previous 'maglev' configuration file
# Create a new default repository called 'maglev'
# Generate the MagLev HTML documentation
# Print build version information
# Remind user to setup environment variables
