The FILTR (File Inventory for Loading, Transfer, and Recovery) automates CVS functions for personal use, allowing a user to maintain a watch on any directory, mirroring it in an intermediate working directory and taking care of all import, add, delete, and update calls to the CVS repository. No changes or additions are made to the directory under watch. The user can revert a watched directory to any previous saved state with a button click, or call up one or several past versions of a file. Groups can also make use of the same repository for file sharing.
Cvsplot is a Perl script which analyzes the history of a CVS-managed project. The script executes on a set of files, analyzes their history, and automatically generates graphs that plot lines of code, number of files, and user contributions against time. It supports both UNIX and Windows environments.
cvs-get is a Perl script that allows you to automate the downloading of current CVS snapshots from a variety of sources. It supports features such as listing and downloading of cvs modules from a sources file, updating of the sources file rom multiple remote locations, and building of Debian packages automatically from Debian-enabled CVS sources. It also include unsupported install/upgrade/remove features which can be used as a rudimentary LFS package manager.
cvsroot is a script to help keep track of multiple sites when using CVS, and in particular the CVSROOT and CVS_RSH environment variables for those sites. It creates a $HOME/.cvsroot file, with shortcut names representing the different CVS sites. The new environment variables appropriate to the site selected will then be set, and a new shell will be spawned to keep the variables. In this way, you do not have to keep setting the environment yourself, and can rely on the script to keep track of things for you.
Anthill is a tool that ensures a controlled build process and promotes the sharing of knowledge within an organization. Anthill performs a checkout from the source repository of the latest version of a project before every build and tags the repository with a unique build number after every build. It supports many reposistory adapters including: CVS (Concurrent Versions System), Visual Source Safe, Perforce, PVCS, StarTeam, MKSIntegrity, and FileSystem. Anthill also automatically updates a project intranet site with artifacts from the latest build. Anthill is an extension to the Apache-Ant project and is compatible with version 1.3, 1.4, and 1.5 of Ant.
Codestriker is a Web application that supports online code reviews. Traditional document reviews are supported, as well as reviewing diffs generated by an SCM (Source Code Management) system and plain unidiff patches. There are integration points with CVS, Subversion, Clearcase, Perforce, Visual SourceSafe, and Bugzilla. There is a plug-in architecture for supporting other SCMs and issue tracking systems. It minimizes paper work, ensures that issues, comments, and decisions are recorded in a database, and provides a comfortable workspace for actually performing code inspections. An optional highly-configurable metrics subsystem allows you to record code inspection metrics as a part of your process.
