• Best way to assemble?

    From Paul Hayton@3:770/100 to All on Wednesday, February 10, 2021 21:25:00
    I'm trying to figure out how to best assemble content for my nodelist.

    At present there's all the info under 'data' and want to move to enable some 'net's to submit updates under 'files'

    But at this stage those net submissions are not all coming from nets and will be a mix of me and some nets

    How best to set things up when the soon to be external submissions are net 3 and net 4 but I am generating net 1, 2, and 5?

    I can keep my net 1 and 2 info under 'data' then set net 3 and 4 under files but can't then pickup with another data entry..

    I'm guessing I need to create static submission files for the nets I manage
    and move most if not all of those nets to submissions I have to manually copy into the inbound dir for makenl to pick up and process... then I end up with just a files entry with

    net1 z21n1
    net2 z21n2
    net3 z21n3
    net4 z21n4
    net5 z21n5

    It just feels like a pain to do this for the bits I maintain all so I keep
    the assembled nodelist in correct order. I did try a test that kept my net
    1,2 and 5 info under data and then net 3 and 4 under files but it ended up in that order in the final test nodelist... and that I'm fairly sure is not good :)

    Yes, you would have to copy/paste your segments into their own net files. Then you would edit those when you add/remove nodes rather than the master file.

    This is why I haven't done the same thing with Agoranet yet. It really wouldn't
    be that difficult copy/pasting segments into separate net files, but I just get
    grumpy and every time I think about doing it I find something more fun to do. ;)

    No problem. However, if you look at it from the other perspective, had we done this the right way in the first place we wouldn't be complaining about it right
    now. ;)

    At the time, it was more of a "It's just an othernet. It'll never require that much maintenance." Well, years later I'm wishing I never though that way. lol

    Too true. Yeah I will likely work some plans to get this working the way I think it's intended to fly... but just taking it slowly as I walk further
    into the Linux forest :)
