xadd - tool for adding database items

xadd adds platform and application records to the BOINC database. Information is read from an XML file project.xml in the project's root directory. Run xadd from the project root directory, i.e.:

cd ~/projects/project_name
bin/xadd

The contents of project.xml should look like this:

  <boinc>
    <app>
        <name>setiathome</name>
        <user_friendly_name>SETI@home</user_friendly_name>
        [ <min_version>N</min_version> ]
        [ <homogeneous_redundancy>0|1</homogeneous_redundancy> ]
        [ <weight>X</weight> ]
        [ <beta>1</beta> ]
    </app>
    ...
    <platform>
        <name>anonymous</name>
        <user_friendly_name>anonymous</user_friendly_name>
    </platform>
    <platform>
        <name>i686-pc-linux-gnu</name>
        <user_friendly_name>Linux/x86</user_friendly_name>
    </platform>
    <platform>
        <name>windows_intelx86</name>
        <user_friendly_name>Windows/x86</user_friendly_name>
    </platform>
    <platform>
        <name>powerpc-apple-darwin</name>
        <user_friendly_name>Mac OS X</user_friendly_name>
    </platform>
    ...
  </boinc>

xadd only adds new items; entries that conflict with existing entries are ignored. To modify existing entries, you must edit the database directly with SQL.
