First of all, you're posting to the wrong group. The cvsgui list is at cvsgui at yahoogroups.com (registration required at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/cvsgui) and mirrored at news://news.cvsnt.org/support.cvsgui . Even more appropriate in this case might probably be the developer's list at cvsgui-dev at yahoogroups.com . Now for the beef: Porting the existing TCL macros to Python was a task that I had originally been intending to tackle. It turned out I probably won't have enough time to finish it properly. The only two I have really _ported_ so far (well, "rewritten" fits the facts better I guess) are ChangeRoot and cvs2cl. These are already in CVS and will likely be included in WinCvs 1.3b11. I have also written an extended RecursiveAdd macro which is based on Tk. It works very fine for me and I got a few reports from others liking it as well but there is a slight chance that the way it is implemented (i.e. the Tk bit) might break some existing TCL macros because of potential(!) search path issues. I haven't gotten enough feedback on these macros yet to feel entirely comfortable with letting average unsuspecting users run into it. The chance of breakage is very small however and would only affect certain custom-made TCL macros (if at all!), not the ones that come with WinCvs. So I might just commit them some time this week at last. If you want to take a look my macros (those to be included in WinCvs as well as some others) are still available from http://people.freenet.de/ogiesen/readme.html . FWIW, just this morning I had been thinking about starting a poll on which of the existing TCL macros people actually use on a regular basis in order to prioritize the conversion work. I guess I might actually do that today. Cheers and welcome aboard. :) Oliver ----------------------- JID: ogiesen at jabber.org ICQ: 18777742 (http://wwp.icq.com/18777742)
