Message Hello Gunnar!

Yes, thank you. I'll fix that.

There's a conversion script for the ignore/grouping patterns; you don't have to do that
by hand.

Well, the open itself shouldn't modify the mtime of the directory ... but the creation
of a temporary file will.

You could try using the filter option "text,owner,mode,gro​up,new,deleted" ... that's
simply everything but mtime.
You won't see files with *only* mtime changed, too - but that might be ok, as they
should be given as soon as the data changes.

From a quick look, yes. But I didn't test.

Maybe ...
The symlinks are there just for informational purposes, and so they might stay.
If there's only a sqlite database, it's not that easy to see which working copy this is.
Maybe I should put a "README" or something like that in there? But that's not so easily
used by scripts ...

Fine ;-/, please tell me.

I'll be happy to hear any results!



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