Development

eboard uses Sourceforge's facilities to keep track of bugs, feature requests and concurrent access to the source code.

Mailing Lists

If you want to talk to other eboard users, share ideas and comments about eboard, or simply be notified when new versions of eboard are released, join the eboard mailing lists. There are 2 lists:
  • eboard-devel
    The eboard-devel is where development is discussed. It can get higher traffic during some important development steps (e.g. 5-10 emails a day), but is usally a low traffic list. You don't need to be a developer to join. Join eboard-devel.
  • eboard-users
    The eboard-users list meant for release announcements, important bug warnings or otherwise postings of interest for eboard users (non-developers). It's meant to be low-traffic (at most 5-10 emails a month). Join eboard-users.
We have a policy of not double posting a single message to both lists, so subscribing to both lists can be considered safe and will not lead to duplicate messages.

Bug Reports and Feature Requests

If you found a bug or want a new feature included in eboard, use the sourceforge tracker system (accessible from the Project Page), send an email to the author (the address is shown on eboard startup), or send an email to the eboard-devel mailing list.

Bug reports are usually treated ASAP, feature requests may be delayed if there isn't enough support from the eboard user base.

Anonymous CVS Access

eboard code is kept in a CVS [?] repository. To grab a snapshot of the repository, do:

cvs -d:pserver:anonymous@eboard.cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/eboard login
(just hit enter at the password prompt)
cvs -z3 -d:pserver:anonymous@eboard.cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/eboard co eboard

Further updates from the eboard subdirectory don't need the -d parameter.

You can browse the CVS hierarchy of eboard, the feature is available in the Project Page.
