WordPress repository not refreshing
|Reported by:||fireproofsocks||Owned by:|
Every time I submit a change to my plugin, it does not show up on my plugin's download page. I've had to submit each new version multiple times before it finally gets picked up. It's extremely frustrating.
- Commit changes to SVN trunk
- svn copy http://plugins.svn.wordpress.org/custom-content-type-manager/trunk/* http://plugins.svn.wordpress.org/custom-content-type-manager/tags/1.2.3
New version shows up for download.
Nothing happens. Devs get pissed.
If there's documentation about how this should be done EXACTLY, then it should be included on the http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/about/ page. The page here: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/about/svn/ is very poor because it does not explain how you can actually use SVN while developing a plugin. It's correct in theory, but in reality, you wouldn't have your tags and trunk directory sitting in your wp-content/plugins directory -- it's worth pointing out how you might check out the contents of the trunk directly to your local plugin folder, e.g.
svn checkout http://plugins.svn.wordpress.org/custom-content-type-manager/trunk .
And it should be made crystal clear which readme.txt is being read to produce the download page, and it should be crystal clear how the version in the information head relates to the Stable Tag in the readme.txt file. There are several interrelated moving parts here, and frankly, even after messing around with this for hours, I have no clear understanding of how this actually works. If it were me, I'd scrap this whole thing and use a "tags/stable" branch that will always contain the version of the plugin that's visible on the download page.
