1This "contrib" directory is a place holder for code/scripts sent to me 2by contributors around the world. This README file will be kept 3up-to-date from release to release. BUT, we must point out that these 4contributions are really, REALLY UNSUPPORTED. In fact, we probably 5don't even know what some of them really do. We certainly do not 6guarantee to have tried them, or ported them to work with this CVS 7distribution. If you have questions, your best bet is to contact the 8original author, but you should not necessarily expect a reply, since 9the author may not be available at the address given. 10 11USE AT YOUR OWN RISK -- and all that stuff. 12 13"Unsupported" also means that no one has volunteered to accept and check 14in changes to this directory. So submissions for new scripts to add 15here are unlikely to be accepted. Suggested changes to the existing 16scripts here conceivably might, but that isn't clear either, unless of 17course they come from the original author of the script. 18 19If you have some software that works with CVS that you wish to offer it 20is suggested that you make it available by FTP or HTTP and then announce 21it on the info-cvs mailing list. 22 23There is a web page of software related to CVS at the following URL which 24would presumably be willing to list your software. 25 26 http://www.loria.fr/~molli/cvs-index.html 27 28An attempt at a table of Contents for this directory: 29 30 README This file. 31 32 check_cvs A perl script to check an entire repository for 33 corruption. 34 Contributed by Donald Sharp <email@example.com>. 35 36 clmerge A perl script to handle merge conflicts in GNU 37 style ChangeLog files . 38 Contributed by Tom Tromey <firstname.lastname@example.org>. 39 40 cln_hist A perl script to compress your 41 $CVSROOT/CVSROOT/history file, as it can grow quite 42 large after extended use. 43 Contributed by David G. Grubbs <email@example.com> 44 45 commit_prep A perl script, to be combined with log_accum.pl, to 46 log_accum provide for a way to combine the individual log 47 messages of a multi-directory "commit" into a 48 single log message, and mail the result somewhere. 49 Can also do other checks for $Id and that you are 50 committing the correct revision of the file. 51 Read the comments carefully. 52 Contributed by David Hampton <firstname.lastname@example.org>. 53 54 cvs2vendor A shell script to move changes from a repository 55 that was started without a vendor branch to one 56 that has a vendor branch. 57 Contributed by Greg A. Woods <email@example.com>. 58 59 cvs_acls A perl script that implements Access Control Lists 60 by using the "commitinfo" hook provided with the 61 "cvs commit" command. 62 Contributed by David G. Grubbs <firstname.lastname@example.org>. 63 64 cvscheck Identifies files added, changed, or removed in a 65 cvscheck.man checked out CVS tree; also notices unknown files. 66 Contributed by Lowell Skoog <email@example.com> 67 68 cvshelp.man An introductory manual page written by Lowell Skoog 69 <firstname.lastname@example.org>. It is most likely 70 out-of-date relative to CVS 1.3, but still may be 71 useful. 72 73 debug_check_log A shell script to help analyze sanity check failures. 74 Contributed by Derek R. Price <email@example.com>. 75 76 descend A shell script that can be used to recursively 77 descend.man descend through a directory. In CVS 1.2, this was 78 very useful, since many of the commands were not 79 recursive. In CVS 1.3 (and later), however, most of 80 the commands are recursive. However, this may still 81 come in handy. 82 Contributed by Lowell Skoog <firstname.lastname@example.org> 83 84 dirfns A shar file which contains some code that might 85 help your system support opendir/readdir/closedir, 86 if it does not already. 87 Copied from the C-News distribution. 88 89 intro.doc A user's view of what you need to know to get 90 started with CVS. 91 Contributed by <Steven.Pemberton@cwi.nl>. 92 93 log A perl script suitable for including in your 94 $CVSROOT/CVSROOT/loginfo file for logging commit 95 changes. Includes the RCS revision of the change 96 as part of the log. 97 Contributed by Kevin Samborn <email@example.com>. 98 99 log_accum See commit_prep. 100 101 mfpipe Another perl script for logging. Allows you to 102 pipe the log message to a file and/or send mail 103 to some alias. 104 Contributed by John Clyne <firstname.lastname@example.org>. 105 106 pvcs2rcs A perl script to convert a PVCS tree to an RCS tree. 107 108 rcs-to-cvs Script to import sources that may have been under 109 RCS control already. 110 Contributed by Per Cederqvist <email@example.com>. 111 112 rcs2log A shell script to create a ChangeLog-format file 113 given only a set of RCS files. 114 Contributed by Paul Eggert <firstname.lastname@example.org>. 115 116 rcs2sccs A shell script to convert simple RCS files into 117 SCCS files, originally gleaned off the network 118 somewhere (originally by "kenc") and modified by 119 Jerry Jelinek <jerry@rmtc.Central.Sun.COM> and 120 Brian Berliner <email@example.com> to increase 121 robustness and add support for one-level of branches. 122 123 rcslock A perl script that can be added to your commitinfo 124 file that tries to determine if your RCS file is 125 currently locked by someone else, as might be the 126 case for a binary file. 127 Contributed by John Rouillard <firstname.lastname@example.org>. 128 129 sccs2rcs A C-shell script that can convert (some) SCCS files 130 into RCS files, retaining the info contained in the 131 SCCS file (like dates, author, and log message). 132 Contributed by Ken Cox <email@example.com>.
