cvs - Concurrent Versions System…  more info»

NEWS.Debian.gz

cvs (2:1.12.13+real-7) unstable; urgency=high

  rcs2log no longer lives in the PATH, the contributed script
  and its manpage are in /usr/share/cvs/contrib/rcs2log now.

  Some contrib files (and their documentation) are no longer
  shipped with the binary package (antique, insecure, useless).

  -rHEAD in "cvs diff" now, consistently with all other cvs
  subcommands, means "tip of the trunk (MAIN branch)"; to
  access the tip of the another branch, use its name; as a
  compatibility aid, -r.bhead (only in diff) points to the
  tip of the sticky branch.

cvs (2:1.12.13+real-5) unstable; urgency=low

  This cvs package is a totally new packaging and has almost
  nothing in common with what was in Debian before. The most
  visible changes are outlined below:

  pserver is no longer officially supported; the cvs package
  does not install any service, inetd, or something similar.
  If you want to set up a CVS server, use SSH, as shown in:
  * http://www.stremler.net/Code/cvs_tricks/cvs-over-ssh.html
  * http://www.stremler.net/Code/cvs_tricks/cvs-over-ssh-advanced.html
  * http://www.stremler.net/Code/cvs_tricks/cvs-over-ssh-advanced2.html

  Consequentially, PAM is also no longer supported, and this
  package does not set up or manage any repositories; that's
  the system administrator's job now.

  For running "cvs admin" tasks the user must be a member of
  the new "_cvsadmin" system group, or the repository be set
  up (UserAdminOptions in CVSROOT/config) to allow everyone.

  The date format for $Id$ and similar in checkouts has been
  switched back from ISO 8601 to the standard RCS format, to
  keep checksums over checkouts/exports consistent. This, as
  well as the fact that only the :local: and :extssh: access
  methods are officially supported, is not negotiable.

  Please direct feature requests upstream, not to the BTS. I
  do quite an amount of hacking CVS, but prefer to care only
  about the packaging bits with "full power" in Debian.
