Fellow devs, I'm encountering a lot of bitching with using svn-inject (from svn-buildpackage) over an NFS share. A quick survey of fellow DDs told me that they don't build packages on an NFS share anyway but instead use their local disks. And - voila - svn-inject finally worked from a local disk. So I was generally questioning how I use NFS here. Of course it's faster to work from a completely local disk. No network latency (even though it's a LAN). My disks transport ~30 MB/sec whereas my 100 Mbps networks is limited to ~10 MB/sec. But it's convenient to have the files backed up to tape automatically on the server. And I can work on my laptop in the living room as well as on my workstation in the basement. So I'm wondering what other developers do. Are you using NFS at all? Are you putting all your work under repository control and check the files out to a local disk and back in to the server? I consider keeping $HOME on NFS but symlink $HOME/debian to /mnt/localdisk/debian or something like that. I'd love to learn how other developers handle this. Cheers Christoph -- When you do things right people won't be sure you've done anything at all.
