Note: Before making any changes to a file, make sure you have allocated the task to yourself in trac.
Note: Use a plain text editor for editing HTML files, as a WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) editor can mess up the code. It has also been found that some editors are not suitable for editing Perl source, for example gedit is known to corrupt accented characters. If you are working on an html file, use Prepare Page to view the file as it will be deployed, once the gtml macros have been expanded (see gtml help for more information) and if you can do this in multiple browsers, so much the better. Finally, it is good practice to do a cvs diff to check that the changes made are what you intended (use cvs diff -b to ignore changes in spacing).
Note: There is an alternative to using Notepad when committing in step one. Replace the command shown with cvs commit -m "message" filename where message is the description you would have typed into Notepad.
Tip Put the development server, the test site and trac login into your 'Favourites' folder. You can then move from one to the other easily.
