Chapter 13. Initial Steps

There are two different ways of adding components to the ASCL. Either you are downloading the latest Version for the project web site or your are connecting to the CVS.

In the first case you will have to provide at the end patch files with the changes you have made.

In the second case you need to register at sourceforge as user and with the project at source forge as developer. Afterwards you need to establish a connection between your computer and the CVS archive at sourceforge.

The first method is the most simplest way to start. But it has the disadvantage that you do not see the changes made by other developers in the team until the next official release.

The second method is more complicated at the beging but you are working always on the latest ASCL version and creating patch files is not nessesary any more.
