Hello everyone,

until last week, I used to store my project third-party libs inside my project, just cloning their repos. This week i have been researching about improving project lifecycle process, mostly to improve some things at work. We are planning to start using CI server (hudson). So I've been learning about it and i would like to try it with my own projects.
Hudson lets you checkout the repositorie each time you want to build or a change is made to the repo, in order to have a really "fresh build", but as I store all those 3rd party libraries (assimp, boost, sfml..) the project's size is too bigger to checkout each build.


Sooooo... after this introduction, my doubts are:

- Should I keep doing this way?
- Should I change to not checkout the repo for the build?
- Should I move the 3rd party libs outside of the project and just store the bin files in the project?
- OR subrepositories would give me some advantages about project size?

Thanks in advance

Hi,

it depends. In the opensource world, some projects include 3rd party libs in an archive which can be dowloaded, but most of the time NOT included in the CVS/SNV/GIT repository. My 2 cents is that you should put the third parties out of the repository and provide some compiling documentation including the list of 3rd party libs you use.
