2006-05-07Change to allow subdir updates from EclipseMartyn Smith
(Now you can rightclick any directory and select team-update/team-commit) and it should work
2006-05-07Many fixes for most operations in Eclipse.Martyn Smith
* Implemented global -n option * Implemented "Questionable" * Fixed Directory method, I _believe_ it's now correct in both cmdline and Eclipse. * Directory method Now looks for localdir of "." and compares the repo dir, uses THIS as a basis for all directory level calculations. * Added extra parameter to filenamesplit() to force stripping of "prepended" directory name. This ensures commits/updates etc work from any directory in the source tree. * Modified argsfromdir() so it is "always" called. This means that when the client specifies a directory, the method can detect this and behave accordingly (this is currently only implemented for the '.' directory) * Fixed "commit" method to correctly work from in a subdir

2006-04-25Deprecate usage of git-var -l for getting config vars listPetr Baudis
This has been an unfortunate sideway in the git API evolution. We use git-repo-config for all the other .git/config interaction so let's also use git-repo-config -l for the variable listing. Signed-off-by: Petr Baudis <>
2006-03-04cvsserver: anonymous cvs via pserver supportMartin Langhoff
git-cvsserver now knows how to do the pserver auth chat when the user is anonymous. To get it to work, add a line to your inetd.conf like cvspserver stream tcp nowait nobody git-cvsserver pserver (On some inetd implementations you may have to put the pserver parameter twice.) Commits are blocked. Naively, git-cvsserver assumes non-malicious users. Please review the code before setting this up on an internet-accessible server. NOTE: the <nobody> user above will need write access to the .git directory to maintain the sqlite database. Updating of the sqlite database should be put in an update hook to avoid this problem, so that it is maintained by users with write access.
2006-03-04cvsserver: better error messagesMartin Langhoff
We now have different error messages when the repo is not found vs repo is not configured to allow gitcvs. Should help users during initial checkouts. Signed-off-by: Martin Langhoff <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2006-03-04cvsserver: nested directory creation fixups for Eclipse clientsMartin Langhoff
To create nested directories without (or before) sending file entries is rather tricky. Most clients just work. Eclipse, however, expects a very specific sequence of events. With this patch, cvsserver meets those expectations. Note: we may want to reuse prepdir() in req_update -- should move it outside of req_co. Right now prepdir() is tied to how req_co() works.

2006-03-03cvsserver: fix checkouts with -d <somedir>Martin Langhoff
A recent Eclipse compat fix broke checkouts with -d. Fix it so that the server sends the correct module name instead of the destination directory name.
2006-03-03cvsserver: checkout faster by sending files in a sensible orderMartin Langhoff
Just by sending the files in an ordered fashion, clients can process them much faster. And we can optimize our check of whether we created this directory already -- faster. Timings for a checkout on a commandline cvs client for a project with ~13K files totalling ~100MB: Unsorted: 603.12 real 16.89 user 42.88 sys Sorted: 298.19 real 26.37 user 42.42 sys
2006-03-02cvsserver: Eclipse compat -- now "compare with latest from HEAD" worksMartin Langhoff
The Eclipse client uses cvs update when that menu option is triggered. And doesn't like the standard cvs update response. Give it *exactly* what it wants. And hope the other clients don't lose the plot too badly. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2006-03-02cvsserver: Checkout correctly on EclipseMartin Langhoff
Initial checkouts were failing to create Entries files under Eclipse. Eclipse was waiting for two non-standard directory-resets to prepare for a new directory from the server. This patch is tricky, because the same directory resets tend to confuse other clients. It's taken a bit of fiddling to get the commandline cvs client and Eclipse to get a good, clean checkout.

2006-03-01cvsserver: Eclipse compat - browsing 'modules' (heads in our case) worksMartin Langhoff
Eclipse CVS clients have an odd way of perusing the top level of the repository, by calling update on module "". So reproduce cvs' odd behaviour in the interest of compatibility. It makes it much easier to get a checkout when using Eclipse.
2006-03-01cvsserver: Eclipse compat fixes - implement Questionable, alias rlog, add a ↵Martin Langhoff
space after the U A few things to satisfy Eclipse's strange habits as a cvs client: - Implement Questionable - Aliased rlog to log, but more work may be needed - Add a space after the U that indicates updated
2006-02-22Introducing git-cvsserver -- a CVS emulator for git.Martin Langhoff
git-cvsserver is highly functional. However, not all methods are implemented, and for those methods that are implemented, not all switches are implemented. All the common read operations are implemented, and add/remove/commit are supported. Testing has been done using both the CLI CVS client, and the Eclipse CVS plugin. Most functionality works fine with both of these clients. Currently git-cvsserver only works over SSH connections, see the Documentation for more details on how to configure your client. It does not support pserver for anonymous access but it should not be hard to implement. Anonymous access will need tighter input validation. In our very informal tests, it seems to be significantly faster than a real CVS server. This utility depends on a version of git-cvsannotate that supports -S and on DBD::SQLite. Licensed under GPLv2.
