* checkout.lisp (mcvs-checkout): Bugfix: must use checkout-dir, not
module, when testing whether directory exists or was created properly.
1 kaz 1.3 Release Notes for Meta-CVS
2 kaz 1.1
3 kaz 1.40 Release 0.10, 2002-03-??:
5     Bugfix: checkout -d foo bar was complaining about directory bar already
6     existing, even though it should only care about foo.
8 kaz 1.39 Release 0.9, 2002-03-14:
9 kaz 1.37
10     Bugfix: the .cvsignore file is now subject to tagging, status, etc,
11     (unless --nometa is specified, of course).
12 kaz 1.38
13     The mcvs filt command takes -r <revision> or -D <date> parameters.
14     This means to retrieve the MAP file as of the specified revision or
15     date and use that mapping to perform the filtering translation,
16     rather than using MAP-LOCAL.
17 kaz 1.39
18     The mcvs update command takes filename arguments now and also
19     supports the -p option.
20 kaz 1.37
21 kaz 1.36 Release 0.8, 2002-03-13:
22 kaz 1.28
23 kaz 1.29 Bug fixed in mcvs add; it was not ignoring files that are already
24     listed as :ignore in MCVS/TYPES.
26 kaz 1.34 Bug fixed in mcvs move: a target with a trailing slash is now treated
27     as a directory (if it does not already exist and is a non-directory).
29 kaz 1.30 The -d option of mcvs checkout can now be used to override the checkout
30     directory, which is normally the same as the module name.
32 kaz 1.31 The global options --version, --help, -q, -Q and -e are now supported.
34 kaz 1.33 New global options --error-continue and --error-terminate to disable
35     interactive error handling in two different ways.
37 kaz 1.32 Log level of many messages has changed; many messages have been
38     relegated to debug level.
40 kaz 1.35 The import command now creates a .cvsignore file containing the name
41     MAP-LOCAL.
43 kaz 1.24 Release 0.7, 2002-03-09:
45 kaz 1.27 The import command collects a list of the file suffixes and brings up
46     a text editor to allow the user to edit their CVS keyword expansion
47     behavior. This information is kept in a new metafile called TYPES. The
48     add command also updates TYPES; it identifies any suffixes which are new,
49     and brings up an editor. The F- files now carry suffixes, which
50     simplifies interfacing with CVS, and also allows cvswrappers to work.
52     Recursive add works (mcvs add -R ...).
54     New command line option --nometa allows metafiles to be excluded from
55     diff, tag, and other commands; without the option they are inserted
56     into the list of files to be processed.
57 kaz 1.25
58 kaz 1.27 The commit option now takes an optional list of files or directories,
59     just like tag, diff, and others.
60 kaz 1.26
61 kaz 1.23 Release 0.6, 2002-02-16:
62 kaz 1.19
63 kaz 1.27 The add operation was horribly broken in 0.5, it is fixed.
64 kaz 1.21
65 kaz 1.27 User can interactively select whether to clobber local files or leave
66     everything alone. Effects on the mapping file of a mcvs move are undone,
67     if the restructuring is rolled back, or raises a condition that leads
68     to termination.
70     Meta-CVS now keeps a new meta-file called MCVS/TYPES. This is created
71     during import, and specifies the CVS keyword expansion mode for files
72     having given suffixes, and can also tell Meta-CVS to ignore certain files
73     when importing or adding.
74 kaz 1.22
75 kaz 1.18 Release 0.5, 2002-02-10:
76 kaz 1.14
77 kaz 1.27 Much improved error handling. Filesystem rearranging code performs
78     sanity checks to prevent adds and moves from accidentally clobbering
79     local files. A rearranging gone bad can be rolled back. Effects
80     of a failed mcvs add can also be rolled back.
81 kaz 1.14
82 kaz 1.27 MAP-LOCAL is now sorted in the same way as MAP.
83 kaz 1.15
84 kaz 1.13 Release 0.4, 2002-02-04:
85 kaz 1.10
86 kaz 1.27 CVS is invoked using internal function resembling the xargs utility,
87     which ensures that multiple command lines are generated if necessary to
88     avoid surpassing the operating system limit on argument and environment
89     vector size. This is important when someone wants to diff or stat a
90     subdirectory, which requires Meta-CVS to pick out the individual files
91     at the CVS level.
93     The tag, log, status and annotate commands are now available.
95     The MAP file is sorted on F- file names now, not path names. This
96     improves merging, since files do not move within the file when
97     they are renamed.
98 kaz 1.12
99 kaz 1.5 Release 0.3, 2002-02-02:
101 kaz 1.27 Process termination done is properly in top level handler, by a nonlocal
102     exit. The program properly indicates failed termination when it exits
103     due to an error condition.
105     Corrections are made in the command line option processing. If z is an
106     option that takes an argument, and the argument is -zx, then x is
107     treated as the argument to the option. Long options arguments are
108     recognized properly, according to the --opt=arg convention. The option
109     processing is restructured. Most of the commands now take the
110     appropriate cvs command-specific options.
112     The update algorithm performs dupe checking over the map, which could
113     happen during a merge.
115     Some more bugfixing has been done to the move command. It was still not
116     handling right some cases of an unversioned file being clobbered. Also,
117     it wasn't renaming a directory containing just one file.
119     I did some performance investigation for larger file sets, and
120     ended up rewriting the code that computes filesystem restructuring
121     changes and map duplicates.
122 kaz 1.5
123 kaz 1.4 Release 0.2, 2002-01-30:
125 kaz 1.27 Changed official name from MCVS to Meta-CVS. The move command now
126     performs some filesystem tests so it does the right thing when a versioned
127     file is moved over a non-versioned file, or when a file is moved into
128     a directory not known to Meta-CVS. Factored out reading and writing of
129     map files into functions.
130 kaz 1.4
131 kaz 1.2 Release 0.1, 2002-01-28:
133 kaz 1.27 Support for mcvs diff -u added. The -R option works for mcvs add command.
134     Bug fixed in mcvs mv command; it wasn't working analogously to the Unix
135     mv command when copying a directory to an existing directory.
136 kaz 1.2
137     Release 0.0, 2002-01-27:
138 kaz 1.1
139 kaz 1.27 This is alpha software. It is not complete, and lacks documentation.
140     However, it is already usable in its present state and is being used for
141     version control by its author. If you can program in Common Lisp and would
142     like to help, take a look through the TODO file. Send me patches, ideas,
143     feature requests.
