Parallels+minicpan+svk on the go

[ #34721 ]

So, now that I had to buy my MBP [oh darns], I'll be taking that on the trip to New Orleans on the long train ride. Assuming I'm not staring out the window or watching DVDs, and doing any other adult activities all the time, I need to get some coding done.

At the OSX layer, I've got a minicpan repo going for the cpan shell to use, and I've got an svk copy of my entire repo. Easy peasy.

Now, I have a few parallels VM instances going along for the ride for testing purposes: mainly XP, Ubuntu and FreeBSD. Those all have their cpan shells pointed to apache on OSX serving up my minicpan repo. Easy peasy.

Now, my question is, what's the best thing to do about the SVK repo in that same situation? Is it ok to 'serve' the svk[svn] repo on OSX out to those quest OSes?

If I do that, what should the guest OSes do, svn only, or svk? I'm assuming they should also only use the //local branches, and not the //mirror?

  • Just use sshfs [].

    ssh from your virtual machine to your local machine, and they're all using the same repo. Extra handy if you're needing to run tests on all environments after a change.
