Coding / Checkin Guidelines

CVS Checkin Guidelines

Stage is a development server (at the time of writing), and CVS is development medium. Furthermore, longer intervals between commits complicate merging and mae tracking progress harder. Neverthless, please try to observe some basic points before committing code.

Smoke-Tests

As a wise man once said, Where there's smoke, there's fire. We don't have a tinderbox for Stage yet, but let's pretend we do. The following tests are intended as things you can quickly do prior to checking in a major change, to verify everything is still working. Please suggest additions! Try to test with multiple kinds of clients, multiple copies of clients, multiple characters, new characters, old characters, etc, etc.
