Discussion 3 - Eric Amy

Having some sort of code version control system is useful when working in a team. Consequently there is one written for use in Squeak: http://minnow.cc.gatech.edu/squeak/1287
I had trouble getting our Monticello repository set up. It works so long as one is accessing it from a workstation on the CoC network, using the "directory with subdirectories" repository type. But even though said directory is in my group-member's web space, the Monticello browser claims that it doesn't recognize the URL as a repository. As I'm writing this down, I think I've figured it out.

Solution: Access to the 'PUT' command through HTTP is necessary to use a Monticello repository. Due to the security risk, OIT probably doesn't allow the command. Also, the reason it immediately doesn't recognize a URL as a Monticello repository may be because it can't retrieve a directory listing. Apache has to be configured to allow directory listings in order for an HTTP request to a directory to return the contents of that directory.

I just thought that I kept forgetting to put the period on the last line. It helps to know that it was just Squeak making it harder to code and save often.

This describes one possible solution to a file-extension specific file-browser. It's nice that it is only one line.
