[ANNOUNCE] FSVS 1.1.12 released

Message Hello everybody!


Thinking about bigger changes, like copyfrom handling, doesn't really work
in 30 minute pieces in the train; that's why this release took a fair bit
longer than I'd wanted it to.

Well, nevertheless, it got finished ... here are the results.


Apart from the usual small bugfixes, cleanups, documentation and
compatibility updates, the bigger changes are:

- Fixed "fsvs ignore dump" to work in subdirectories; but now "fsvs urls"
  *must* be used for initialization.
- A workaround for doxygen's misfeature of *always* interpreting /* and */
  is implemented; so the ignore pattern documentation is now clearer.
- People using fsvs on http and https URLs now get the properties
  filtered; they couldn't commit because a special property was handed to
  FSVS, that must not be sent to the repository.
- The extended tests may now be run in parallel; that helps me a fair bit
  for QA.


And, of course, there's a thing this release is mainly concerned with:
- Copyfrom handling.
  Using "fsvs cp" should now work; for files and directories, for partial
  and full commits, ...
- Furthermore the user can ask for a bit of information; verbose "fsvs
  info" prints copyfrom source, and a (basic) copyfrom-detection is
  implemented.
   /- I'd like ask for volunteers ... -\
   | "fsvs copyfrom-detect" gives output, but some graphical way |
   | to see/use this information would be nice. |
   \- Perl/Tk, anyone? Or some dialog system? -/


Also the licence got changed to GPLv3; but this shouldn't make any
difference to users :-)


Please get the files from http://freshmeat.net​/projects/fsvs/, as usual;
people on debian can hope for an update package.

Hints, tips and tricks, suggestions and ideas welcome!


Regards,

Phil
