Message Hi Phil,

It's nice to see the last features "stop_auto" and "author" introduced
with this release.
The author option with $SUDO_USER works like promised :-) . Where is the
challenge with using author and svn+ssh:// access?

Best Regards, Gunnar

 > Hello everybody,
 > here's a fresh release.
 > Important: if you're versioning your /etc/ *and* you're using the DynDNS
 > registration client, please change your password; the filtering script
 > used
 > for ddclient.conf was wrong, and so your password might be stored in your
 > repository.
 > It's been about 3 months since the last feature release; it took a bit
 > longer because I changed some internal conventions and shoved code
 > The major changes since 1.1.15 are:
 > - Handling of FSVS_WAA and FSVS_CONF now via the normal option handling,
 > to
 > reduce code size. Now it's possible to use "-oconf=..." on the command
 > line, too.
 > (But it's not possible to override the paths from the config file.)
 > - Bugfix for error after commit, when $EDITOR returned an 0 byte file as
 > commit message.
 > - "fsvs diff" changed to recursive behavior, as "svn" does.
 > - Fixed "fsvs diff -rX" to print only changed entries, not the whole
 > - "fsvs diff -rX:Y" reimplemented, too; performance could get
 > - Rewrote entry fetching from the repository. Previously a file with bad
 > mode (like 0111) couldn't get diffed.
 > - "update -rX" and "diff -rX" (but not "diff -rX:Y") now use the per-url
 > override syntax (see "-u").
 > - New option to set maximum number of revisions on "fsvs log".
 > - Fixed diff for symlinks and devices.
 > - New option "stop_change" for use in scripts.
 > - New option "author" for commit (but that doesn't work for svn+ssh://)
 > - Changed from "merge" to "diff3" as merge program; seems to be more
 > common.
 > - Committed the distclean patch from Sheldon Hearn.
 > - "make install" implemented.
 > For the full list please see
 > There are some known issues, too:
 > - Multi-URL code has been found to be not perfect - removing a (common)
 > directory removes files from all URLs.
 > - "fsvs sync" now tries to fetch all file sizes and entry types from the
 > repository, too. For that we have to do a recursive listing, and fetch
 > special
 > entries; encoded files with only a few kB are looked at, too. Needs
 > time
 > and bandwidth.
 > - "fsvs revert -rX" still doesn't work if types of entries would get
 > changed (dir -> file, symlink -> device, etc.) - that's next on the
 > list. For
 > this release "diff" was done, and I hope it works better.
 > So there's still some work left; stay tuned :-)
 > Please fetch the sources from http://freshmeat.net​/projects/fsvs/, or ask
 > your
 > distributions for packages - at least for debian and fedora you should be
 > fine.
 > If there are any questions, problems or suchlike, don't hesitate to
ask on
