Source Code Archive Server (SCAS)
Coyotedata offers a new service to project developers --
providing a web site, ftp site, plus a secure server to store the
project's source code. Details on this Source Code Archive Server
(SCAS) are available at coyotedata.com.
The Source Code Archive Server provides an important and
valuable tool to people who are working on software projects.
It is aimed primarily at small to medium Open Source Groups
who are at widely scattered locations, and who need a "shared"
code repository. It also provides revision control services
and discussion forums allowing for a sharing of ideas among
those working on the project.
HOW IT WORKS:
The SCAS is a combination web server (web hosting) and
ftp server (software archive server) with some special
value added features:
CGI hooks to RCS (Revision Control System). A Revision Control
System is used by software developers to keep track of changes
to complex software projects. A Revision Control System maintains
a history of changes, along with details on who (programmer)
changed what and why. RCS includes a log message describing the
changes for each revision.
Public and private discussion forums. Public forums are places
where customers of the software developer can pose questions,
make suggestions, and report problems. The private forums are
places where the developers of a software project can discuss
(privately) design ideas, bug reports, and other issues.
Protection for the source code archives. Coyotedata
provides security for the source code archives, protecting
them from unauthorized access. It also protects the source
code archives with a secure backup.
