TBBlue Distribution is now on gitlab!

Post by TheSMoG » Mon Sep 10, 2018 9:52 pm

As we're moving towards the final 1.0 release I've uploaded TBBlue to gitlab for any authors to contribute to and for users to download (no worries, the zipped archives will still be found at the official site).
Any people wishing to contribute tools / games / dot commands to the distribution please send me a PM with your email and a short description of what you have in mind to distribute.

The git repository can be found here

I'm getting 'an error occurred whilst loading commit signatures'? Is it working okay or am I just having bad luck?

You will get that error if you don't sign into your gitlab account. Ie you need to create a gitlab account. I'm not sure if that's because the repo is currently only privately visible. Maybe you can report back after trying again?

It took me a little while to figure out how to clone the official repository onto an sd card without getting it into a sub-directory so I thought I'd share:

git init
git remote add origin https://gitlab.com/thesmog358/tbblue.git
git pull origin master
git branch --set-upstream-to=origin/master master

And then to update:

git pull

I was signed in before. Just tried again, same problem. Have tried on my phone and PC with a couple of browsers to be sure, same for all of them.

It sounds more like a Gitlab bug though - I mean even if it was a permission issue I should get a better error message than that surely?

Also is it private? I could search for it in Gitlab.

The repo is publicly visible but commit privileges have to be approved by me or the other maintainers (That includes you Allen) :) I won't respond to plain requests without an email or PM (here) or on Fb (I'm on messenger) because the legality of the things to include needs to be vetted thoroughly so we do NEED to know what each potential member's intentions are for the distribution; this is the OFFICIAL distribution after all. But you CAN see all files and download them as well without having to be on gitlab. A note aside: gitlab's compression leaves a lot to be desired so you may want to wait for the product of the distro to appear on specnext.com/latestdistro/ if you don't want to download huge zipped files (4 megs compared to 10+ with gitlab)
