Re: Package maintenance in $HOME os an NFS share? (best practices survey)

All the stuff I'm working on is on a server somewhere in the net (either
on alioth, sf.net, berlios,..... or my own server), and whereever I want
to work on something I get a checkout and commit before switching
computers. To checkout things like the DPMT/PAPT repositories I have
small scripts, as I have a checkout of all trunks on my disk usually.
Here is an example snippet:

svn ls ${URL} | sed 's,/$,,' | while read dir; do
        if [ -d ${dir} ]; then
                svn up ${dir}
                svn co ${URL}/${dir}/trunk ${dir}

NFS is something I avoid if possible.

Hope that helps,
