Archive of an SVN changeset

Zip all changed files

Calling all server admins Our server admin was off today and I had to set a site live. We have a dategrep.py script that lists all changed files since a certain date so that those files can then be ftp’d to the live server. This seemed far too tedious for me so I re-wrote the […]
