]project-open[ CVS+ACL Permission Configuration ]project-open[ CVS+ACL Permission Configuration Presentation Transcript

  • Using ] project-open [ to manage SVN / CVS+ACL permission configuration How to use ]project-open[ as a Web interface to maintain the permission configuration files of the Subversion (SVN) and CVS+ACL source code version control system. (cc) Except where otherwise noted , content on this slide is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 License
  • The Problem
    • Manually maintaining the permission configuration of SVN or CVS+ACL is error prone and requires system administrator privileges
    • Permission management of individual SVN/CVS “projects” should be delegated to the project owner.
  • The Solution
    • Use ]project-open[ as a Web-front-end to manage the configuration.
    • Model the SVN/CVS projects in ]po[ as configuration items.
    • Assign the SVN/CVS project owners as administrators to the ]po[ configuration items representing the CVS/CVS projects
    • Use a Perl script (or any other language) to generate the SVN/CVS configuration files based on the ]po[ configuration. The Perl script can use the ]po[ REST interface to query a remote ]po[ server
  • The Solution
    • On the ] project-open [ server, a REST interface exposes the SVN/CVS configuration as a Web service
    • On the SVN/CVS server, the Perl script retrieves the configuration and writes the configuration files for the SVN/CVS daemon

  • Group Management for CVS + ACL
    • CVS+ACL ( cvsacl.sourceforge.net / ) is a patch for CVS that adds ACLs (Access Control Lists) permissions to CVS
    • A “CVS ACL Group Admin” portlet (at the right) is shown in the ]po[ UserViewPage. It allows to manage the user’s CVS group membership.
    • The CVS ACS portlet is integrated into the ]po[ permission system, allowing to delegate permissions.
    • A Perl client uses the ]po[ REST Interface to retrieve the group information and writes the CVSROOT/group configuration file
    • The example at the right shows the resulting “group” file for CVS+ACL generated by the Perl client.
  • Installing Group Management for CVS + ACL
    • Make sure you are running ]po[ 3.5 or higher
    • Retrieve the package “intranet-cvs-integration” from the ]po[ CVS server (=> see www.project-open.org for details)
    • Install the package using /acs-admin/apm/ -> Install packages
    • You will see the CVS Group Admin portlet in every user’s page
    • Go to the Perl directory ~/packages/intranet-rest/perl-client-examples/ and run “perl generate-cvs-acl-group-conf.perl”
    • For questions and issues please go to www.sourceforge.net/projects/project-open/ => Open Discussion or contact [email_address] for support services.
