Download Website 16 Dec 16:16 reposurgeon 2.10


A tool for editing version-control repository history, reposurgeon enables risky operations that version-control systems don't want to let you do, such as editing past comments and metadata and removing commits. It works with any version control system that can export and import git fast-import streams, including git, hg, bzr, CVS, and RCS. It can also read Subversion dump files directly, and can thus be used to script production of very high-quality conversions from Subversion to any supported DVCS.

Release Notes: svnpull has been renamed "repopuller" in anticipation of pulling CVS repositories. This release adds repodiffer, a tool to report diffs between histories. Fossil-IDs are now dumped in pre-commit comments. The "changed" modifier to mailbox_in now dumps a minimal set of updates used. When reading svn repositories, .cvsignore files are lifted to .gitignores. svn's default ignore-pattern behavior is emulated in translations.

Release Notes: This release adds a new storage system for repository data, better integration with Mac OS X, a new format to save playlists, and support for reading and writing song ratings to tags. It has some incompatibilities with previous versions, so it’s recommended to save all your playlists before updating, then load them again with the “Load M3U” option in the playlist menu.
