new (writable) emacs arch repository on savannah: emacs@sv.gnu.org

[resent to "debian-emacsen" because I originally used the wrong address]

I've made a new arch repository for the Emacs development branches on
savannah.gnu.org, using savannah's new arch support.

It is writable by any emacs hacker with write-access to the emacs
project on savannah (it uses the same ssh key that CVS access uses);
there's also read-only version available anonymously via http.

I will synchronize the arch branches with the corresponding CVS branches
on savannah (as I did previously with my personal arch repository;
anybody who previously got emacs sources from "miles@gnu.org--gnu-2005"
should switch to this new repository).  That means that any emacs hacker
who wishes to use arch instead of CVS can do so fairly easily.

The name of the repository is:  emacs@sv.gnu.org

The repository locations are:

   read-write:  sftp://$USER@arch.sv.gnu.org/archives/emacs

   read-only:   http://arch.sv.gnu.org/archives/emacs
[where $USER is your savannah user-name]

See http://arch.sv.gnu.org/guide.html for some more help.

This is a signed archive, so to use it, you'll have to have the GPG keys
for the committer of any revisions you check out, which is kind of a
pain.  Mostly this means my keys, but possibly anybody else who commits

A reasonably easy way to get keys is to use gpg's key-server support,
e.g. to search for my keys:

   gpg --search-keys --keyserver pgp.mit.edu miles@gnu.org

and to search for Stefan's:

   gpg --search-keys --keyserver pgp.mit.edu monnier@iro.umontreal.ca 

[does anybody know an easier way to do this?]

The branches currently available are:


Thanks to the savannah team for what looks like very solid and usable
arch support!



Fast, small, soon; pick any 2.
