Well, as a start I've imported caf-0.25 into Perforce. There are three
codelines (think branches). They are main (current dev), dev/i18n (where
I can work on i18n issues) and rel/0.25 (the current release).
The nice thing about Perforce is that these actually show up as separate
directories in your workspace. Yes, you can check out multiple branches at
the same time.
Michael, how'd you like to try this out:
1. download a Perforce client program from:
2. set these environment variables:
export P4USER P4PASSWD P4CLIENT P4PORT
3. (option) Run:
Change the location of the Root: field to something (it's /tmp right
p4 sync -f
You will end up with all three branches under /tmp/caf (unless you did step
#3). With the permissions that I have given to the guest account, you will
be able to 'p4 edit' any file under the /tmp/caf/dev/... directories. You
have read-only access to everything else.
See? Very little admin :) I can add more users as we need (in fact, you are
already your own user, too). Offer the guest account, ...
Let me know how you like it.
