DevFaqCvsAliases

What is thestandardmodule, and how does it differ from stable?

(This FAQ entry is defunct as of January 2008 - NetBeans sources are now using Mercurial, not CVS)

It doesn't. stableis the older name; use standard.

You can list all alias used in the netbeans.org CVS server using

cvs co -c

or the IDE's CVS client. There's a lot of junk in there, so briefly, the important aliases:

  • standard is all modules needed to build a development version of NB.
  • standard50 is the list needed to build NB 5.0, if that differs. (Similarly for many earlier releases.) Note that the CVS alias file (CVSROOT/modules) cannot be branched, so it is not enough to do
cvs co -r release50 standard

You need to do

cvs co -r release50 standard50

standard_nowww is like standard but excludes */www subdirectories, which makes the checkout faster. (These subdirectories are not needed for the build; they just contain module website docroots.) You might get these directories anyway if you then do an update, unfortunately.
