[ANNOUNCE] FSVS 1.1.13 released

Message Hello everybody,

FSVS 1.1.13 is released.

This is a maintenance/quality release; it has a big amount of bugfixes, and I
got the automated test coverage up to 92.9 percent! (If you count the
error-handling lines, which just abort the program on errors like ENOSPC and
similar, too, you get 95.5%).

If you'd like to see the whole list of changes, please look in the changelog

And for the other people - here's the short list of new features.
* "revert" now reverts add/unversion/copy commands.
* "diff" of copied entries now diffs against the copyfrom source.
* New option to avoid the expensive MD5 copyfrom matcher.
* New option to avoid empty commits.
* FSVS_WARNING can now parse multiple warning options; but
  FSVS_WARNINGS is now deprecated.
* New option "delay" - delays until a second wrap, used for scripts.
  Can be "yes", "no", or any combination of (some) action names.
* Support for absolute ignore patterns; they ease expanding the wc area
  later. Warning if they don't match the wc base.

Documentation can be found at
and an overview for users is

Furthermore the source distribution now includes an example script that can be
used to setup versioning of /etc; some configuration files for debian are
included, to get a commit after each apt-get call.

You can get FSVS as usual from http://freshmeat.net​/projects/fsvs, or you ask
your distribution for an updated package.

Please send your questions, ideas, and other feedback to the mailing lists;
I'd be glad to hear from your experiences.

If you write a blog, and have some tips or tricks to share, I'd be happy to
put a link in the documentation section.



Versioning your /etc, /home or even your whole installation?
             Try fsvs (fsvs.tigris.org)!
