Hi Ritchard

The Borland interclient site
is basically dead (correct me if Im wrong, but last time I checked the
CVS tree still wasn't there). The latest code release was from an
internal Borland tree.

I did the diffs between the versions to apply the changes to the
Firebird copy of interclient. There have been a few other changes to
interclient (mainly Torstens bug fixes) but it hasn;t had a lot of
attention yet.

Why Firebird? and why not cooperate, well it's a long history, anyone
working "opensource" on the code seems to be in Firebird and basically
Borland don't want to touch us with a barge pole. So we're continuing
on doing our opensource stuff, and perhaps one day they'll wake up and
smell the roses. Course we might have moved on by then or they might
have been sold to some other company.

The CVS tree is at:

Instructions are in the doc manager, or in the CVS section off the main
page (I've also put them at the bottom of this email). The module you
want is 'interclient' which has subdirectories 16 and 20 they still
contain a lot of stuff that probably should not be in that CVS area,
like the documentation and binary installshield build.

If you want to make changes, I'd suggest getting a sourceforge userid,
send it to me and I can then put you on the project and give you write
access to the tree. Like I said any help is welcome. And since Im a
java person, Id love to hear about it.



Your database needs YOU!

CVS Details:

*Anonymous CVS Access*

This project's SourceForge CVS repository can be checked out through
anonymous (pserver) CVS with the following instruction set. The module
you wish to check out must be specified as the /modulename/. When
prompted for a password for /anonymous/, simply press the Enter key.

cvs -d:pserver:anonymous@...:/cvsroot/firebird

cvs -z3
-d:pserver:anonymous@...:/cvsroot/firebird co

Updates from within the module's directory do not need the -d parameter.

*Developer CVS Access via SSH*

Only project developers can access the CVS tree via this method. SSH1
must be installed on your client machine. Substitute /modulename/ and
/developername/ with the proper values. Enter your site password when

export CVS_RSH=ssh

cvs -z3 -d/developername/@...:/cvsroot/firebird
co /modulename/

But the firebird one is alive and doing at least a bit of kicking. Most
of the work at the moment has been on core

ditto with the Borland sourceforge interbase site
