* checkout.lisp (mcvs-checkout): Bugfix: must use checkout-dir, not
module, when testing whether directory exists or was created properly.
1 Release Notes for Meta-CVS
2
3 Release 0.10, 2002-03-??:
4
5 Bugfix: checkout -d foo bar was complaining about directory bar already
6 existing, even though it should only care about foo.
7
8 Release 0.9, 2002-03-14:
9
10 Bugfix: the .cvsignore file is now subject to tagging, status, etc,
11 (unless --nometa is specified, of course).
12
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
18 The mcvs update command takes filename arguments now and also
19 supports the -p option.
20
21 Release 0.8, 2002-03-13:
22
23 Bug fixed in mcvs add; it was not ignoring files that are already
24 listed as :ignore in MCVS/TYPES.
25
26 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).
28
29 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.
31
32 The global options --version, --help, -q, -Q and -e are now supported.
33
34 New global options --error-continue and --error-terminate to disable
35 interactive error handling in two different ways.
36
37 Log level of many messages has changed; many messages have been
38 relegated to debug level.
39
40 The import command now creates a .cvsignore file containing the name
41 MAP-LOCAL.
42
43 Release 0.7, 2002-03-09:
44
45 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.
51
52 Recursive add works (mcvs add -R ...).
53
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
58 The commit option now takes an optional list of files or directories,
59 just like tag, diff, and others.
60
61 Release 0.6, 2002-02-16:
62
63 The add operation was horribly broken in 0.5, it is fixed.
64
65 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.
69
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
75 Release 0.5, 2002-02-10:
76
77 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
82 MAP-LOCAL is now sorted in the same way as MAP.
83
84 Release 0.4, 2002-02-04:
85
86 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.
92
93 The tag, log, status and annotate commands are now available.
94
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
99 Release 0.3, 2002-02-02:
100
101 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.
104
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.
111
112 The update algorithm performs dupe checking over the map, which could
113 happen during a merge.
114
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.
118
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
123 Release 0.2, 2002-01-30:
124
125 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
131 Release 0.1, 2002-01-28:
132
133 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
137 Release 0.0, 2002-01-27:
138
139 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.
