-<P>Moodle is an active and evolving work in progress.</P>
-<P>I've been working on it, in some way or other, for several years. It started
- in the 90's when I was webmaster at <a target=_top href="http://www.curtin.edu.au/">Curtin University
- of Technology</a> and a system administrator of their WebCT installation. I
- encountered many frustrations with the WebCT beast and developed an itch that
- needed scratching - there had to be a better way (no, not Blackboard :-)</P>
-<P>I also know a lot of people in schools and smaller institutions (and some big
- ones!) who want to make better use of the Internet but don't know where to start
- in the maze of technologies and pedagogies that are out there. I've always hoped
- there would be a Free alternative that such people could use to help them move
- their teaching skills into the online environment.</P>
-<P>My strong beliefs in the unrealised possibilities of Internet-based education
- led me to complete a Masters and then a PhD in Education, combining my former
- career in Computer Science with newly constructed knowledge about the nature
- of learning and collaboration.</P>
-<P>Since then Moodle has progressed through several very different prototypes
- until the release of version 1.0 upon a largely unsuspecting world on
- August 20, 2002 and a steady series of improved releases since then.
-<P>I've been using it in several courses and find it an
- extremely usable and reliable tool for building high-quality online courses
- - others are reporting the same. Given the context in which it's been designed,
- it works particularly well for smaller institutions, or for smaller, more intimate
- classes.</P>
-<P>When compared to the big commercial tools such as WebCT or Blackboard I think
- it still falls short in some areas (such as scalability and standards support),
- but it comes out ahead in many others (see <a href="features.html">Features</a>).

-<title>Moodle Docs: How to use CVS</title>
-<link rel="stylesheet" href="../theme/standard/styles.php" type="TEXT/CSS">
-</head>
-<body bgcolor="#ffffff">
-<h2>Using CVS to access and update Moodle source code</h2>
-<blockquote>
- <p>CVS is the Concurrent Versioning System. It's a commonly used way of storing
- source code because it keeps versions of all files so that nothing is ever
- lost, and usage by different people is tracked. It also provides ways to merge
- code if two or more people are working on the same file. All code and all
- versions are stored on a central server (in this case, at <a href="http://www.sf.net/">Sourceforge</a>).
- </p>
- <p>To use <a href="http://cvs.sourceforge.net/cgi-bin/viewcvs.cgi/moodle/moodle/">Moodle's
- CVS archive</a> (as a <a href="http://sourceforge.net/project/memberlist.php?group_id=30935">developer
- with write access</a>), you first need to have an <a href="http://sourceforge.net/account/register.php">account
- on Sourceforge</a>. For the examples on this page, let's assume your username
- is <strong><font color="#990000">myusername</font></strong> and your password
- is <strong><font color="#990000">mypassword</font></strong>. Once you have
- a Sourceforge account, contact me (<a
- href="http://dougiamas.com/">Martin Dougiamas</a>) so I can give you write access
- to particular directories.</p>
- <p>To avoid being prompted for <strong><font color="#990000">mypassword</font></strong>
- every time you run a CVS command, follow the <a href="http://sourceforge.net/account/editsshkeys.php">Sourceforge
- directions for using authorized keys</a>. This step is optional, but it can
- make your CVS experience a lot nicer.</p>
- <p>With that done, you should have all the permissions you need, so you just
- need to set up your machine and download the current sources so you can start
- working on them. Below are instructions for Unix and Windows systems.</p>
- <h3>1. Using CVS on Unix</h3>
- <blockquote>
- <p>Sourceforge CVS uses ssh as a transport layer for security, so you will
- have to set this CVS_RSH environment variable in your Unix shell:</p>
- <blockquote>
- <pre><strong>setenv CVS_RSH ssh</strong> (for csh, tcsh etc)</pre>
- <pre><strong>export CVS_RSH=ssh</strong> (for sh, bash etc)</pre>
- </blockquote>
- <p>It's best to put this in your .bashrc or .cshrc so you don't have to type
- it all the time. Then, check out Moodle using this (all one line): </p>
- <blockquote>
- <pre><strong>cvs -z3 -d:ext:myusername@cvs.moodle.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/moodle co moodle</strong></pre>
- </blockquote>
- <p>Don't try to do run this first CVS command into an existing moodle directory
- - start fresh with a new directory.</p>
- <p>Note that you will be prompted for <strong><font color="#990000">mypassword</font></strong>
- for each command unless you set up <a href="http://sourceforge.net/account/editsshkeys.php">authorized
- keys</a></p>
- <p>Now, you should have a new 'moodle' directory. You can rename it and move
- it around if you like. Go into it: </p>
- <blockquote>
- <pre><strong>cd moodle </strong></pre>
- </blockquote>
- <p>All the latest Moodle files should be in there. You can now change files
- in your copy. To compare your files against the main CVS copy on the server
- use cvs diff, eg: </p>
- <blockquote>
- <pre><strong>cvs diff -c config-dist.php
-cvs diff -c lang</strong></pre>
- </blockquote>
- <p>To fetch the latest updates from the server use: </p>
- <blockquote>
- <pre><strong>cvs update -dP</strong> </pre>
- </blockquote>
- <p>To copy your new files back to the server you would do something like:
- </p>
- <blockquote>
- <pre><strong>cd lang/ca
-cvs commit</strong> </pre>
- </blockquote>
- <p>You will be prompted to add some comments (depends on your default text
- editor) ... add a meangingful comment and close the editor ... the files
- will be sent to Sourceforge and stored. Done! </p>
- <p>To save more time you can put default arguments into a file called .cvsrc
- in your home directory. For example, mine contains: </p>
- <blockquote>
- <pre><strong>diff -c
-update -dP</strong> </pre>
- </blockquote>
- <p>Try 'cvs help' for more details ... </p>
- <p>&nbsp;</p>
- </blockquote>
- <h3>2. Using CVS on Windows</h3>
- <blockquote>
- <p>These instructions are based on notes provided by Mitsuhiro Yoshida &lt;mits@mitstek.com&gt;.</p>
- <p>Firstly, download and install WinCVS.</p>
- <blockquote>
- <p><a href="https://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=10072">https://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=10072</a></p>
- </blockquote>
- <p>Secondly, download sfsetup for SourceForge ssh access, install it and reboot
- Windows.</p>
- <blockquote>
- <p><a href="http://sourceforge.net/projects/sfsetup/">http://sourceforge.net/projects/sfsetup/</a></p>
- </blockquote>
- <p>Next, configure WinCVS. Launch it, and select Admin -&gt; Preferences.
- Then change them as follows:</p>
- <blockquote>
- <p> [General]<br>
- <strong>CVSROOT data</strong>:<br>
- <strong>Authentication</strong>: ssh<br>
- <strong>Path</strong>: /cvsroot/moodle<br>
- <strong>Host address</strong>: cvs.moodle.sourceforge.net<br>
- <strong>User name</strong>: <font color="#990000">myusername</font><br>
- <strong>CVSROOT</strong>: <font color="#990000">myusername</font>@cvs.moodle.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/moodle</p>
- <p>[Globals]<br>
- <strong>Checkout read-only</strong>: uncheck<br>
- <strong>Supply control when adding files</strong>: check<br>
- <strong>Quiet mode</strong>: uncheck<br>
- <strong>TCP/IP compression</strong>: check and select 9<br>
- <strong>Dirty files support</strong>: check<br>
- <strong>Prune(remove) empty directories</strong>: check<br>
- <strong>Disable splash screen</strong>: uncheck</p>
- </blockquote>
- <p>Congratulations, WinCVS is set up. Now, you should check out a complete
- working copy of the Moodle course code:</p>
- <ol>
- <li>Select 'Create -&gt; checkout'</li>
- <li>For the setting 'Module name and path on the server&quot;, type &quot;moodle&quot;,
- then click OK.</li>
- <li>Type in <strong><font color="#990000">mypassword</font></strong> and
- press Enter in the DOS window.</li>
- </ol>
- <p>After this first checkout, you can fetch updated files from the CVS server
- like this:</p>
- <ol>
- <li> Select folders or files you want to update</li>
- <li>Press right mouse button and select '<strong>Update selection</strong>'</li>
- <li>Press OK button</li>
- <li>Type in <strong><font color="#990000">mypassword</font></strong> and
- press Enter in the DOS window.</li>
- </ol>
- <p>After modifying files, you can commit them back to the CVS server like
- this:</p>
- <ol>
- <li>Select folders or files you want to commit</li>
- <li>Press right button and select '<strong>Commit selection</strong>'</li>
- <li>Press OK button</li>
- <li>Type in a meaningful comment and press OK button.</li>
- <li>Type in <strong><font color="#990000">mypassword</font></strong> and
- press Enter in the DOS window.</li>
- </ol>
- </blockquote>
- <p>&nbsp;</p>
- <p align="center">Good luck!</p>
- <p>&nbsp;</p>
-</blockquote>
