Reaching teammates by email, IRC

The DIG virtual office is an IRC channel. #mindswap is next door.

The mailing list is paw-team which is archived, but not publicly.

Starting your workspace

The PAW materials are in a subversion respository. One way to start working with it is:

  1. Get a account from Ron (ronwalf in #mindswap).
  2. Create an ssh key pair (if you don't already have one) and give the public key to Ron to be associated with your account.
  3. % svn co svn+ssh://

Subversion Tips

svn doesn't do keywords by default; you have to turn them on; see the keywords section of the svn book.

Emacs integration: vc-svn.el allows all the VC tricks (C-x v = for diff, ...) to work with subversion. It's included in the debian subversion package in /usr/share/emacs/site-lisp/. It integrates more smoothly than psvn.el from XSteve's emacs stuff.
