Avifile Glue for mpeg2_movie started as a simple patch against heroinewarrior mpeg2_movie to utilize libavifile, however the project got out of hand and currently supports the Nuppelvideo file format for input and the MJPEGtools' mpeg2enc YUV4MPEG format for output. Originally, this project's intent was not to become a new package, but only to provide direct AVI to MPEG conversion for the GNU/Unix/Linux community until the core feature (linking against libaviplay) was integrated into the main encoder, but this goal has been abandoned. The project's current goad is to enable as many encoders as possible with the ability to read AVI, NUV, and QT.
CVSSearch searches for code fragments using CVS comments. Specifically, it takes advantage of the fact that a CVS comment describes the lines of code involved in the commit and that this description will typically hold for many future versions. In other words, CVSSearch allows you to better search the most recent version of the code by looking at previous versions to better understand the current version.
