I am trying to learn how to use arch, and i am faced with a problem
following the tutorial.

I have followed the tutorial, but it seems that the files don't get
added to the archive, and only an empty file is commited.

For information, i do :

tla my-id "Sven Luther <address@hidden>"
tla make-archive address@hidden ~/debian/ARCH/parted
tla my-default-archive address@hidden
tla archive-setup debian--mainline--1.0
=> move into initial import tree
tla init-tree debian--mainline--1.0
=> tla inventory --names --source shows me all the files.
vi `tla make-log` => and adds initial import Summary.
tla import
=> ERROR :
  These files would be source but lack inventory ids (`tla add' or a
  tagline perhaps?):


 * imported address@hidden/debian--mainline--1.0
From this it seems that your directory _has_ been imported, but it is considered empty since your files weren't tagged

tla add debian
tla add parted_1.6.6.orig.tar.gz
This is okay, it tags the files for your future operations (such as commit -hint, hint- )

tla import
  import: tree already has patch log entries for version
  tree: /home/luther/debian/parted/repo
version: address@hidden/address@hidden:~/debian/parted/repo$
Well, it _has_ been imported once before, therefore you should do
$>tla make-log
edit the log file
$>tla commit

And your files will be commited as a new patch to the empty tree, you can't "re-import" the version.

But when trying to tla get from elsewhere, i get only an empty dir with
an {arch} directory in it, and sure enough :

cd ~/debian/ARCH/parted/debian/debian--mainline/debian--mainline--1.0/base-0
tar tzvf debian--mainline--1.0--base-0.src.tar.gz
  drwxr-xr-x luther/luther     0 2004-01-26 16:30:02 
  drwxr-xr-x luther/luther     0 2004-01-26 16:30:02 
  -rw-r--r-- luther/luther    52 2004-01-26 16:30:02 
  -rw-r--r-- luther/luther  6803 2004-01-26 16:30:02 
  drwxr-xr-x luther/luther     0 2004-01-26 16:30:02 
  drwxr-xr-x luther/luther     0 2004-01-26 16:30:02 
  drwxr-xr-x luther/luther     0 2004-01-26 16:30:02 
  drwxr-xr-x luther/luther     0 2004-01-26 16:30:02 
  drwxr-xr-x luther/luther     0 2004-01-26 16:30:02 
  -rw-r--r-- luther/luther   303 2004-01-26 16:30:02 

Not a single mention of my files.

See before.

I did this two times, following the instructions to the letter, at least
this seems so to me, but without luck.

Actually you reversed 2 operations : you didn't tag the files before importing. and then you tried to reimport over an existing version.

Hope this helps
