Setting up Sharpster
The Sharpster configuration is located in config/sharpster.xml in the sharpster directory. This configuration contains the following fields that have to be filled in using XML syntax. If Sharpster can not find the configuration file a new one will be generated automatically.
username: The username that Sharpster will use when logging in to specified SCM system.
password: The password that Sharpster will use when logging in to specified SCM system.
repository: This is the path to the specified SCM repository root. It is important that the path is absolute (not relative).
temporary: Sharpster has to have a temporary storage location in order to work, this path has to be absolute and should not contain any other files.
SCM: This field specifies which SCM system that Sharpster will use, CVSManager for CVS and SVNManager for Subversion.
default-module: When using CVS you have to specify which module Sharpster should use. Please note that this field can not be empty, even when using Subversion.
