I'm getting close to a 0.1 release of PathZilla (I can't think of a better name) and I thought it would be nice to share the code in an SVN repository. That way we can share code and ideas more easily, users could also get old versions if they need to use older revisions of NoAI for some reason (people might start making special integrated builds that include NoAI at some point in the future), and... you know... SVN its just how its done! The benefits of proper source control should be obvious to anyone who knows what it is!!
Then I got to thinking that an SVN repository just for me would be a waste, so how about a repository for all those AI developers who want to share? "noai-contrib" or something. Of course we don't want to force people (especially participants to the TJIP contest) to share code if they don't want to, but I think it will be nice for those who do.
If its not possible or appropriate (copyright issues?) for us to use openttd.org then we could easily use Google Code or Sourceforge.
I wouldn't mind a sneak peak at the competitionZutty wrote: (..)

But on the other hand, I would have to start obfuscating my code, and they would do so, and I would need more time to de-obfuscate theirs, etc
But in general it sounds like a good idea
Also, for the TJIP challenge I strongly advise people to keep their AI for themselves. As both Rubidium and I do not participate in the challenge, you are always free to ask us questions about it, even with code-snippets. The code will be handled with at-most care, of course.
Oh yeah that's a good point. I didn't think of that!Yexo wrote:I don't see many benefits from a general svn repository. Allowing multiple people to commit there means they could ruin each others AIs.
I might still do it for myself. I know its a bit silly for just one person, but I like the idea of being able to browse code online.
Why so?Zutty wrote:I know its a bit silly for just one person, but I like the idea of being able to browse code online.
I have SVN repos on my PC, which I use all by myself. It's just much more convenient, than to keep backup copies of my projects in case I FUBAR something.
