Jakub Tesinsky > Texty > Upgrade and customization pattern

Prague, 2007-06

I wonder whether there is a standard pattern for managing semiautomatical upgrading of software and preserving local customizations to it. I experiment with keeping  local customizations if form of patches, but it is not really satisfactory. Another approach would be to set up the local versioning server and keep the software there together with customizations. I did not tried that yet and I do not know whether it would be easy to upgrade using this method either.

Mimochodem: zajímalo by mne jak by se přeložil název tohoto článečku do češtiny. Vzhledem k tomu že mne uspokojivý překlad nenapadl, jsem to raději nechal v angličtině.
