How to help the EasyList maintainers

Post by barbaz » Thu Apr 23, 2015 12:49 am

Just wanted to say Thank You to all the EasyList maintainers for making the Easy project open source! :D

Also, I keep a local copy of the EasyList repository, and I'm wondering whether it's actually helpful to the EasyList maintainers if I use it to answer threads like this on occasion? Does that save you time or does it just make it less likely you'll see the thread?

Most repositories can be copied locally (git, svn) I'm not sure about mercurial however as I've never used it. Probably a good question for Wladimir Palant who hosts the Easylist filters repository.

Everything has to be checked manually by us anyway but it might be handy sometimes though.

Thanks for the reply MonztA, glad I can help, I'll do that as it's appropriate for threads I happen to see. :-)

You can:

Code: Select all

hg clone <repo_url>
This drops the repository in its own (named) subfolder in the current directory.

To grab later changesets from the server:

Code: Select all

hg pull

Cool that's pretty much the same as git.
