Hi All,

Bill and I talked this morning and decided (actually confirmed that we both agreed with what we already thought) that the PacSat git repository names are confusing.  Bill and I agreed to change them, and I have done so.

This means that if you have cloned them, you will have to change the upstream names in your local repository to match in order to push upstream.

Here are the changes: 

  1. pacsatx is now PacSatSw  and is to be use only for software (and documentation in the form of comments).
  2. pacsat is now PacSatDocs and is to be used for documentation, including hardware schematics, hardware layouts etc.  
  3. PacSatSw is now WB1FJPacSatToDelete.  This was the original repo that I created 

PacSatSw can be cloned directly into Code Composer Studio--it contains some of the CCS metadata to describe to the compiler where header files are etc.

Currently there are two subdirectories in PacSatDocs:  "requirements" and "reference".  Requirements contains documents about PacSat itself.  Reference contains files taken from other repositories, generally Fox or Golf SVN.  These will usually be PDF files, and are NOT the masters.  If changes are required, they must be made in the source files, which are in their original repositories.

Bill is thinking about what to do regarding hardware, but will probably add a "hardware" folder for schematics etc etc.

WB1FJPacSatToDelete can be deleted if no one is using it.  It has had no checkins since November...it was moved to what is now PacSatSw at that time.

We hope and expect that we will not have to do this again, and we apologize to those who have to change their local git repos.  But hopefully, this renaming makes it a lot more clear what is going on.


Burns and Bill
