Support » Plugins » Hacks » Checkout Stable release via SVN automatically

  • What I’m trying to do is to add a couple of plugins in a local SVN repository using svn:externals. The problem is that plugin developers can choose what their Stable tag is(actually that’s pretty cool in general) – so for some plugins it will be /trunk, for others it will be in /tags/X....

    Is there any way to get the stable tag at a specific URL, like for instance /stable?

    I don’t know if it’s possible to probably set-up some kind of rewrite rules that will return the location of the Stable release.

    I can always try to write a shell script that will update the external URLs in my repo according to the proper location of the Stable release(by parsing the readme.txt), but it would be really great if this can be accomplished for all plguins/themes.

    PP: I think that this topic is somewhat similar(although it relates to the WordPress source and is from 7 years ago) to my problem.
