Re: Issues with edits


Hi Jim,
I am sorry to hear you had such a struggle with bzr. Perhaps I can give you one tip that might be useful and that works for me. Before I make changes to a tex file I copy the original one to another folder, e.g. /manual-raring. I make changes to /manual-raring/name-of-chapter.tex, and when finished I copy it to /Projects/raring, rename it, test it and when successful I commit. this is for me the safest way to prevent loss of changes I made.

To what edits do you refer when you say: "...and am concerned about some of the edits I now see (edits I did not do)."?

There is no \icon tag, as far as I know.

The latest version I see is version 100. I guess with "version 101 is in bzr" you mean that it is on your pc, but not in Launchpad yet because you cannot push. You can just push it when you are back on your main system again.

Finally, take your time. No problem if you need time until the end of this week. The Ubuntu-desktop chapter is one of the most difficult chapters to edit. We very much appreciate the work you do (not only on this chapter) and hope you are not too much put off by the problems you encountered. Be assured that your team mates are here to help.

Best regards,

Good evening all,

With Kevin's help, I finally got bzr to work correctly, but this required me to do an "uncommit" on my errant branch. Now that I'm back onto the main branch, I'm looking through version 100 in the Ubuntu Desktop section and am concerned about some of the edits I now see (edits I did not do). In doing an uncommit, I've also lost the edits I had in place (which were replaced by edits in version 100, so I did my best to rip through the section again and try to remember where all the edits needed to occur, but to be honest, I've lost confidence in this section and will require a couple more days to look it over again.

Secondly, I've added the /icon tag in place of the /lens tag in the Ubuntu Desktop section, however, this prevents the make file from working correctly; at every /icon tag, it throws an error. I can get by the error simply by pressing <enter>, but this recovery is less-than-ideal. Is there something I need to do on my end to make this work or is this a problem elsewhere?

Thirdly, the current version is 101 in bzr, but, for whatever reason, I can PULL but not PUSH on the laptop I'm using. If someone can push out 101, I'd appreciate it. I'll get back on my main system tomorrow night.

Sorry for all the problems. This iteration has proven less than satisfactory for a host of reasons. I hope by the middle of the week, I'll have regained the confidence in my edits. Of course, I invite anyone to read over the section, making edits where necessary.
