Thanks David. The git sub-module method seems clean and efficient.

For the symlink option, are you manually linking each file, or is this what tools/epm link_cfg|link_lib does?

I’ve used a couple of methods now.

1.       Develop the plugin in a separate decretory somewhere else on the some machine (/home/david/dev/bazaar-package) and then link it back to where it should be in the eprints archive dir.

2.       Same as above, but instead of linking, create submodule in your eprints git repo, and pull it in when you do some development on your plugin code.

Subject: [EP-tech] Managing Bazaar package development

Hi Bazaar package developers

I'm just starting to work with Bazaar packages and I'm wondering how to handle their development, packaging and upload. The key issue is that I want to manage the source code for the package in a separate git repo to my EPrints core but developing the code in an EPrints install and then copying the code back to a git repo to commit seems somewhat clumsy. I'm tempted to write a script for packaging and installing an EPM from a git working copy (as far as I can see tools/epm doesn't really help with this, or am I missing something?).

I'd be very interested to hear how you more experienced package developers are handling this.
