I’m in the unlucky position that CruiseControl.NET doesn’t support the source control provider (Seapine Surround SCM) we use here at work. Briefly looking at the source code for CCNET, I noticed that I could create support for Surround SCM by implementing the ISourceControl interface via inheriting the ProcessSourceControl.cs class. However, before I go down that road, does anyone know if I can add a custome source control provider as a plug-in?
For example, if you want to use a build tool other than NAnt or Devenv.exe, you can create a builder plug-in by following these instructions. Will that work for creating a custom source control plugin? (Of course I’d be replacing IBuilder with ISourceControl or ProcessSourceControl.cs).
I’d prefer not to compile my update into the main code branch as I don’t want to maintain a variant of CruiseControl.NET. Likewise, I don’t want to write this plug-in if someone else already has one out there. It might be a better use of my time to convince my dept to switch SCM tools. ;)
