7 | The correct way to commit a *category* metadata file at the moment is:
8 | xmllint --noout --valid metadata.xml
9 | glep31check metadata.xml
10 | cvs commit -m "blah blah" metadata.xml
12 Hrm, and if you're running *vim but not using ~arch, and if you have
13 some weird locale setting, you might want to upgrade to ~arch and accept
14 all the changes to /etc/vim/vimrc. It's RedHat's fault (long story).
16 *shrug* No huge deal really, I'm waiting for nano's utf-8 support to be
17 confirmed stable and working before I go through and tidy up the
18 remaining impure characters in the tree.
