is a lightweight webserver. The purpose is to provide a simple alternative to new (or old) developers to get a svn checkout
up and running in a quick way (see GettingStarted
Starting the server is deadly simple: just execute
from your Foswiki working copy. This script generates a lighttpd configuration file in a temporary directory, executes lighttpd in foreground (i.e. blocks your terminal), and deletes the configuration file after the server is stopped. To stop the server you just have to type Control-C on the terminal.
- It's simple to have Foswiki running for development purposes
- Error messages are printed to your terminal window, so debugging is easier
Since this is a standalone script that does not need to be released at all, AFAICT it has no impact on the rest of Foswiki.

No Foswiki code is affected by this, but I don't know if it would be acceptable to just add it to
or if it's better to follow the regular change proposal workflow. Any input is appreciated.

I liked this script a lot! Together with
./pseudo-install.pl -A developer
we get a ready-to-use/test foswiki really fast
Since it doesn't impact on the rest of Foswiki and is not released, I'd say to just commit it
Anyway I added myself as CommittedDeveloper and today as DateOfCommitment.

Yes this is out of the scope where release process decisions are needed. You can go ahead and check in this in the tools directory since it is a service to developers and have no effect on what we release - except making it better
