Revision 1.38 - (show annotations)
Wed Mar 13 19:22:08 2002 UTC (12 years, 1 month ago) by kaz
Branch: MAIN
Changes since 1.37: +5 -0 lines
The filt command takes arguments to select alternate revision
of map.

* mcvs-main.lisp (*filt-options*): New constant.
(*mcvs-command-table*): Updated with new options.
(mcvs-debug-shell): Restart name changed during debugging of filt
changes.

* filt.lisp (filt-select-map): New function. Loads either the
local mapping, or retrieves an alternate mapping from CVS based
on command line options.
(mcvs-filt): Use filt-select-map rather than mapping-read.
1 Release Notes for Meta-CVS

3 Release 0.9, 2002-03-??:
4
5 Bugfix: the .cvsignore file is now subject to tagging, status, etc,
6 (unless --nometa is specified, of course).
7
8 The mcvs filt command takes -r <revision> or -D <date> parameters.
9 This means to retrieve the MAP file as of the specified revision or
10 date and use that mapping to perform the filtering translation,
11 rather than using MAP-LOCAL.
12
13 Release 0.8, 2002-03-13:
14
15 Bug fixed in mcvs add; it was not ignoring files that are already
16 listed as :ignore in MCVS/TYPES.
17
18 Bug fixed in mcvs move: a target with a trailing slash is now treated
19 as a directory (if it does not already exist and is a non-directory).
20
21 The -d option of mcvs checkout can now be used to override the checkout
22 directory, which is normally the same as the module name.
23
24 The global options --version, --help, -q, -Q and -e are now supported.
25
26 New global options --error-continue and --error-terminate to disable
27 interactive error handling in two different ways.
28
29 Log level of many messages has changed; many messages have been
30 relegated to debug level.
31
32 The import command now creates a .cvsignore file containing the name
33 MAP-LOCAL.
34
35 Release 0.7, 2002-03-09:
36
37 The import command collects a list of the file suffixes and brings up
38 a text editor to allow the user to edit their CVS keyword expansion
39 behavior. This information is kept in a new metafile called TYPES. The
40 add command also updates TYPES; it identifies any suffixes which are new,
41 and brings up an editor. The F- files now carry suffixes, which
42 simplifies interfacing with CVS, and also allows cvswrappers to work.
43
44 Recursive add works (mcvs add -R ...).
45
46 New command line option --nometa allows metafiles to be excluded from
47 diff, tag, and other commands; without the option they are inserted
48 into the list of files to be processed.
49
50 The commit option now takes an optional list of files or directories,
51 just like tag, diff, and others.
52
53 Release 0.6, 2002-02-16:
54
55 The add operation was horribly broken in 0.5, it is fixed.
56
57 User can interactively select whether to clobber local files or leave
58 everything alone. Effects on the mapping file of a mcvs move are undone,
59 if the restructuring is rolled back, or raises a condition that leads
60 to termination.
61
62 Meta-CVS now keeps a new meta-file called MCVS/TYPES. This is created
63 during import, and specifies the CVS keyword expansion mode for files
64 having given suffixes, and can also tell Meta-CVS to ignore certain files
65 when importing or adding.
66
67 Release 0.5, 2002-02-10:
68
69 Much improved error handling. Filesystem rearranging code performs
70 sanity checks to prevent adds and moves from accidentally clobbering
71 local files. A rearranging gone bad can be rolled back. Effects
72 of a failed mcvs add can also be rolled back.
73
74 MAP-LOCAL is now sorted in the same way as MAP.
75
76 Release 0.4, 2002-02-04:
77
78 CVS is invoked using internal function resembling the xargs utility,
79 which ensures that multiple command lines are generated if necessary to
80 avoid surpassing the operating system limit on argument and environment
81 vector size. This is important when someone wants to diff or stat a
82 subdirectory, which requires Meta-CVS to pick out the individual files
83 at the CVS level.
84
85 The tag, log, status and annotate commands are now available.
86
87 The MAP file is sorted on F- file names now, not path names. This
88 improves merging, since files do not move within the file when
89 they are renamed.
90
91 Release 0.3, 2002-02-02:
92
93 Process termination done is properly in top level handler, by a nonlocal
94 exit. The program properly indicates failed termination when it exits
95 due to an error condition.
96
97 Corrections are made in the command line option processing. If z is an
98 option that takes an argument, and the argument is -zx, then x is
99 treated as the argument to the option. Long options arguments are
100 recognized properly, according to the --opt=arg convention. The option
101 processing is restructured. Most of the commands now take the
102 appropriate cvs command-specific options.
103
104 The update algorithm performs dupe checking over the map, which could
105 happen during a merge.
106
107 Some more bugfixing has been done to the move command. It was still not
108 handling right some cases of an unversioned file being clobbered. Also,
109 it wasn't renaming a directory containing just one file.
110
111 I did some performance investigation for larger file sets, and
112 ended up rewriting the code that computes filesystem restructuring
113 changes and map duplicates.
114
115 Release 0.2, 2002-01-30:
116
117 Changed official name from MCVS to Meta-CVS. The move command now
118 performs some filesystem tests so it does the right thing when a versioned
119 file is moved over a non-versioned file, or when a file is moved into
120 a directory not known to Meta-CVS. Factored out reading and writing of
121 map files into functions.
122
123 Release 0.1, 2002-01-28:
124
125 Support for mcvs diff -u added. The -R option works for mcvs add command.
126 Bug fixed in mcvs mv command; it wasn't working analogously to the Unix
127 mv command when copying a directory to an existing directory.
128
129 Release 0.0, 2002-01-27:
130
131 This is alpha software. It is not complete, and lacks documentation.
132 However, it is already usable in its present state and is being used for
133 version control by its author. If you can program in Common Lisp and would
134 like to help, take a look through the TODO file. Send me patches, ideas,
135 feature requests.
