Campaign 46 begins

The Axis turned in another victory last weekend after a fairly epic 92 day Campaign that could have gone either way at various points during the battle. We’ve made some tweaks to movement timers (the full 60 minute timer now applies whether you are moving from or to a frontline town, and the behind-lines timers is now 30 minutes instead of 15) and I snuck in “Chat Shortcuts” ($orig, $targ, $lead, $unit, $miss). Doc reduced the armor in Infantry Brigades some more, Riflemen are down to 700 per non-armor brigade vs 900 previously.

It promises to be a fascinating campaign with relatively simple changes and no client patch as yet.

Start or Pre commit hook?

As part of our automated build process, I provide a list of branches/versions that can be compiled. With Visual Source Safe I just wrote a script to use the SourceOffSite client and read all the versionNo.h’s from certain folders and generate an XML file. With SVN it seems like I could improve on that by making it so that any commits of “versionNo.h” would automatically set a property on the top-level folder and then my build tool could just read properties rather than having to fetch versionNo.h from each folder and scan it.

Only I’m new to SVN so … Would I do that client side or in a start commit hook or a pre commit hook?
