Hi Frederick

Is the following conversation of any use to you or you have already seen this.


Rivendell 1.7.2
OpenSuse 11.1

Hi Chris,

This feature has been added currently to the 1.7.2 v1_branch. It allows
for rdadmin Dropbox configuration
of start and end dates, as well as manually starting rdimport with
start/end dates.

Not sure when this will be ported to 2.0 since that architecture is
decidedly different.

Hope this helps.

Todd Baker

That's great you are already working on something.  Not sure how many
others are out there, but it would sure help us out!;-)

As for which version, maybe just going straight into 2.0?  That was my
current plan for an upgrade path anyway, directly from 1.52 (1.6 on my
other machine) to 2.0.

On our dropbox setup, we have a launcher setup for each dropbox.  It
opens a terminal window with rdimport and lets us have a ton of command
line switches.  We then close them when the files are done importingfor
that week.  I avoided the rdadmin dropboxes since we cant add segue
points during import.   Seems to get full use you need to use the
command line switches.

Thanks again!
