h1. Replicant Sources 

 h2. Browsing the source 

 The Replicant source code is currently hosted at Gitorious:  
 There is a branch per Replicant version, like @replicant-2.2@. 

 h2. Code tree location 

 Start by defining the place where you want to download Replicant tree. 

 *Important: the name of the path to this location must not contain spaces!* 

 h2. Installing the tools 

 Then, download the @repo@ tool and set it executable: 

 mkdir tools 
 cd tools 
 chmod a+x repo 
 cd ../ 

 h2. Getting the source manifest 

 The source manifest is the list of all the git repositories that are present in the Replicant tree. 
 Each Replicant version has a dedicated branch with the proper source manifest. 

 h3. Replicant 4.2 

 mkdir replicant-4.2 
 cd replicant-4.2 
 ../tools/repo init -u git:// -b replicant-4.2 

 h3. Replicant 4.0 

 mkdir replicant-4.0 
 cd replicant-4.0 
 ../tools/repo init -u git:// -b replicant-4.0 

 h3. Replicant 2.3 

 mkdir replicant-2.3 
 cd replicant-2.3 
 ../tools/repo init -u git:// -b replicant-2.3 

 h3. Replicant 2.2 

 mkdir replicant-2.2 
 cd replicant-2.2 
 ../tools/repo init -u git:// -b replicant-2.2 

 h2. Downloading/Updating the source from the repos 

 Now that you have configured the repository to use a manifest, you can start downloading Replicant sources for the desired version. 

 *This step is very long and can take the whole day to complete!* 

 ../tools/repo sync 

 Depending on your internet bandwidth, using the @-j@ argument may speed up the process (if you encounter errors, retry without the @-j@ argument): 

 ../tools/repo sync -j9 

 Once the source is ready, you need to get the prebuilt applications: 

 You must redo these steps this step each time you want to sync your tree, in order to keep it up to date. Future syncs are faster than the first one.
