[PATCH] cvs list and cvs rlog

From: Alastair J. Houghton
Subject: [PATCH] cvs list and cvs rlog
Date: Sun, 12 Nov 2000 18:08:01 -0000

On the 16th of last month, Peter Bowen posted a patch on the
info-cvs-request list that provided a new command, "cvs list".
Unfortunately, that patch has a bug (try "cvs ls -a CVSROOT"
on a new repository).

"cvs list" is a very useful command, but you still can't see all
of the information that might be useful; therefore I created
"cvs rlog" (replacing the old deprecated synonym for "log"), which
displays log entries without a working directory. Doubtless a flame
war will now ensue over whether this is an appropriate name (I think
it is, because it goes with the convention already established for
"rtag" - on the other hand, "rlog" used to mean something slightly
different, but the warning has been around at least since 1.10 so
no-one should be using "rlog" now).

Note that:

  1. I'm not on the development list, nor do I intend to
     subscribe to it; so any replies had better go to my mail

  2. I haven't tested the client/server functionality; I *think*
     it does the right thing, but as I'm on WinNT it's harder
     to test this than it would be e.g. on UNIX.

Hope this proves useful,


p.s. The following things are attached:

1. cvs-rlog.diff; this patch provides the "cvs rlog" command.

2. list.diff/list.c; a fixed version of Peter Bowen's "cvs list".
