1 Release Notes for Meta-CVS
2
3 Release 0.11, 2002-04-??:
4
5 Bugfix: when branch invokes rtag, it now takes the CVSROOT information
6 from CVS/Root and passes it via -d. This is necessary because rtag does not
7 look at a local CVS subdirectory for this information, only the
8 -d option or the environment variable.
9
10 Release 0.10, 2002-04-03:
11
12 Automatic merging implemented. Branch is created using branch command,
13 and merging from another branch is done using simple merge command.
14 Meta-CVS maintains the tags to keep track of what has been merged
15 from what branch to what branch.
16
17 Bugfix: checkout -d foo bar was complaining about directory bar already
18 existing, even though it should only care about foo.
19
20 The remove command now requires explicit -R option to recursively remove
21 a directory. It has more detailed error reporting.
22
23 The move command has better error reporting.
24
25 Release 0.9, 2002-03-14:
26
27 Bugfix: the .cvsignore file is now subject to tagging, status, etc,
28 (unless --nometa is specified, of course).
29
30 The mcvs filt command takes -r <revision> or -D <date> parameters.
31 This means to retrieve the MAP file as of the specified revision or
32 date and use that mapping to perform the filtering translation,
33 rather than using MAP-LOCAL.
34
35 The mcvs update command takes filename arguments now and also
36 supports the -p option.
37
38 Release 0.8, 2002-03-13:
39
40 Bug fixed in mcvs add; it was not ignoring files that are already
41 listed as :ignore in MCVS/TYPES.
42
43 Bug fixed in mcvs move: a target with a trailing slash is now treated
44 as a directory (if it does not already exist and is a non-directory).
45
46 The -d option of mcvs checkout can now be used to override the checkout
47 directory, which is normally the same as the module name.
48
49 The global options --version, --help, -q, -Q and -e are now supported.
50
51 New global options --error-continue and --error-terminate to disable
52 interactive error handling in two different ways.
53
54 Log level of many messages has changed; many messages have been
55 relegated to debug level.
56
57 The import command now creates a .cvsignore file containing the name
58 MAP-LOCAL.
59
60 Release 0.7, 2002-03-09:
61
62 The import command collects a list of the file suffixes and brings up
63 a text editor to allow the user to edit their CVS keyword expansion
64 behavior. This information is kept in a new metafile called TYPES. The
65 add command also updates TYPES; it identifies any suffixes which are new,
66 and brings up an editor. The F- files now carry suffixes, which
67 simplifies interfacing with CVS, and also allows cvswrappers to work.
68
69 Recursive add works (mcvs add -R ...).
70
71 New command line option --nometa allows metafiles to be excluded from
72 diff, tag, and other commands; without the option they are inserted
73 into the list of files to be processed.
74
75 The commit option now takes an optional list of files or directories,
76 just like tag, diff, and others.
77
78 Release 0.6, 2002-02-16:
79
80 The add operation was horribly broken in 0.5, it is fixed.
81
82 User can interactively select whether to clobber local files or leave
83 everything alone. Effects on the mapping file of a mcvs move are undone,
84 if the restructuring is rolled back, or raises a condition that leads
85 to termination.
86
87 Meta-CVS now keeps a new meta-file called MCVS/TYPES. This is created
88 during import, and specifies the CVS keyword expansion mode for files
89 having given suffixes, and can also tell Meta-CVS to ignore certain files
90 when importing or adding.
91
92 Release 0.5, 2002-02-10:
93
94 Much improved error handling. Filesystem rearranging code performs
95 sanity checks to prevent adds and moves from accidentally clobbering
96 local files. A rearranging gone bad can be rolled back. Effects
97 of a failed mcvs add can also be rolled back.
98
99 MAP-LOCAL is now sorted in the same way as MAP.
100
101 Release 0.4, 2002-02-04:
102
103 CVS is invoked using internal function resembling the xargs utility,
104 which ensures that multiple command lines are generated if necessary to
105 avoid surpassing the operating system limit on argument and environment
106 vector size. This is important when someone wants to diff or stat a
107 subdirectory, which requires Meta-CVS to pick out the individual files
108 at the CVS level.
109
110 The tag, log, status and annotate commands are now available.
111
112 The MAP file is sorted on F- file names now, not path names. This
113 improves merging, since files do not move within the file when
114 they are renamed.
115
116 Release 0.3, 2002-02-02:
117
118 Process termination done is properly in top level handler, by a nonlocal
119 exit. The program properly indicates failed termination when it exits
120 due to an error condition.
121
122 Corrections are made in the command line option processing. If z is an
123 option that takes an argument, and the argument is -zx, then x is
124 treated as the argument to the option. Long options arguments are
125 recognized properly, according to the --opt=arg convention. The option
126 processing is restructured. Most of the commands now take the
127 appropriate cvs command-specific options.
128
129 The update algorithm performs dupe checking over the map, which could
130 happen during a merge.
131
132 Some more bugfixing has been done to the move command. It was still not
133 handling right some cases of an unversioned file being clobbered. Also,
134 it wasn't renaming a directory containing just one file.
135
136 I did some performance investigation for larger file sets, and
137 ended up rewriting the code that computes filesystem restructuring
138 changes and map duplicates.
139
140 Release 0.2, 2002-01-30:
141
142 Changed official name from MCVS to Meta-CVS. The move command now
143 performs some filesystem tests so it does the right thing when a versioned
144 file is moved over a non-versioned file, or when a file is moved into
145 a directory not known to Meta-CVS. Factored out reading and writing of
146 map files into functions.
147
148 Release 0.1, 2002-01-28:
149
150 Support for mcvs diff -u added. The -R option works for mcvs add command.
151 Bug fixed in mcvs mv command; it wasn't working analogously to the Unix
152 mv command when copying a directory to an existing directory.
153
154 Release 0.0, 2002-01-27:
155
156 This is alpha software. It is not complete, and lacks documentation.
157 However, it is already usable in its present state and is being used for
158 version control by its author. If you can program in Common Lisp and would
159 like to help, take a look through the TODO file. Send me patches, ideas,
160 feature requests.
