ViewCVS has a very nice diff function (in addition to making it very easy to browse older versions, track version tags, etc.) You can also use it to browse your repository to identify when (and by whom) changes have been made. ViewCVS is a must-have tool in our shop. -----Original Message----- From: Samuel Neff [mailto:sam at serndesign.com] Sent: Wednesday, September 24, 2003 3:09 PM To: CVSNT Subject: [cvsnt] Changing comments on old revisions We've been using CVS for a few months now in our 3-developer team. Previously we were not using any form of version control. Turns out that I'm the only one actually entering comments when committing changes. I'll have to fix this through policy for future commits, but for all previous commits, can someone help identify how we can fix our repository history? A few questions come to mind: 1. How can I find out what lines of code changed for a particular revision over the previous revision? The only one I figured out was to get the previous revision to local and then do a cvs diff on the revision I'm inspecting. This is pretty slow though. 2. How can I update comments for a previous revision? 3. Is there a way to get a list, by user, of all the revisions to all the files so our developers can use it as a checklist? 4. Is there any tool that will help us enter comments for all uncommented revisions? We're not doing any tagging or branching or anything fancy like that yet in case that would affect things.
