About this repository
This is a repository containing links to various conferences and their talk recordings, slides, etc. In academia, these are called proceedings and that's as good a name as any.
Using this repository
To use this repository, you will need to install git-annex.
Once you have installed
git-annex, simply run
git clone git://github.com/RichiH/conference_proceedings.git cd conference_proceedings cd $interesting_conference git annex get $interesting_talk
And git-annex will start downloading said talk all by itself. To download everything in a given directory and all of its subdirectories, simply run
git annex get .
, but please be aware that this can use a lot of disk space and cause a lot of traffic.
Please use a fresh clone of this repository to import new talks; else you
will leak information about your history via
git annex addurl --relaxed, so that git-annex only stores the url
and not its hash, so that if a talk video is changed, the new version
will be accepted.
git clone git://github.com/RichiH/conference_proceedings.git scratch cd scratch # trick to avoid adding another uuid to the repository; reuse web uuid git config annex.version 5 git config annex.uuid 00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000001 git annex addurl --relaxed ... git commit -m "new talk"
Contrary to my earlier workflow, I don't need pull requests/patch sets for the "git-annex" branch any more as long I can pull from your repository. If I can't pull directly, I will steal the patchset for the "git-annex" branch.
