FSVS 1.0.3 released

Message Hello everybody,


FSVS 1.0.3 is released.

----- Excerpt from http://fsvs.tigris.org

FSVS stands for “Fast System VerSioning”, “File System VerSioning” or
“Full System VerSioning”. It aims to become a complete backup/restore tool
for all files in a directory tree or whole filesystems, with a subversion
repository as the backend.
You may think of it as some kind of tar or rsync with versioned storage.

----- Excerpt ends


This new release has a lot of bugfixes and a few notable changes:

- A testing framework with result verification.
  This leads to much higher quality, since bugs should be more readily
found. (1)
- A new command for synchronizing with the repository-state
("sync-repos").
  (Documentation soon in fsvs-repository in doc/USAGE, not included in
tar)
- update, commit and sync-repos now print a tab before the revision number,
  to ease parsing from shell-scripts.
- The format for the local storage area has changed again. But this is no
  cause for alarm; simply do "fsvs sync-repos" and a new list will be
  generated from the repository.


Do not hesitate to contact me for questions and problems.


Regards,

Phil



Ad 1: I already found (apart from some bugs in fsvs) a bug in rsync, which
causes it to try to chdir() into a device, so there're spurious test
failures.
Bug is already filed in debian, I'm thinking about using something like
"ls -laR" and "md5sum" as (partial) substitute.
