============================================================ README for GitHub-only portion of Galactic Milieu project ============================================================ This is a Git repository for a project much of which already exists on SourceForge. THIS IS NOT A COPY OF WHAT IS ON SOURCEFORGE. Rather, it is at least partly, and possibly mostly, a part of the runtime environment of the project in the sense that being able to pick up data from a central place at runtime can have its uses. Git and SVN were both considered for use in such roles, I (Mark Metson) merely happen to have started work on a Git based such resource first. Likely an SVN based such resource will also be made, quite likely based at SourceForge, when work on the Makefiles and scripts for this resource reaches a point where "if configured to use git, use the Github resource else if configured to use svn use the SourceForge SVN resource" becomes appropriate. ------------------------------------------------------------ This part of the project is loosely inspired by the "make Money" concept that MakeMoney Knotwork used to try to document. (See The Wayback Machine, makemoney.knotwork.com) That concept was, sinply enter the command "make money" and presto, it does its best to do so. This one is more along the lines of "play game" or "run game" with the word "play" and/or the word "run" being simply a euphemism/alias for "make". Thus I will be starting by assuming cron will be running "make" periodically and "make" will figure out, largely from last modified dates of files as is normal for "make", what to actually do (such as git pull and/or svn up...) WARNING!!! WARNING!!! WARNING!!! WARNING!!! WARNING!!! Does that sound safe/secure to you?!?!?! If so, please think again and/or harder! It is not! It is stupid to run this crap! Are you out of your mind!?!?! Oh sure I run it, why the heck not, I write it. Oh wait, no, I DO NOT RUN IT! Some other username on one of my machines runs it. A disempowered user. Nonetheless, even a disempowered user can do while fork or not fork fork or other trivial infinite loops to eat system resources. So don't run this crap, use it as inspiration to run your part of the project your way or something and don't blame me if you don't like what it does. WARNING!!! WARNING!!! WARNING!!! WARNING!!! WARNING!!! ============================================================
