Update the document to try to make it clear that Fossil works fine as a peer-to-peer system and does not require the use of a server. Leaf check-in: dc0a342d user: drh tags: trunk
Tightened up the opening paragraph of "Linux vs SQLite" section of fossil-v-git. check-in: 0297ae7f user: wyoung tags: trunk
Moved numbered digressions in fossil-v-git down to the end of the document as a new "Asides and Digressions" section. These are things we don't want cluttering the main argument, not merely big parentheticals. check-in: 84526274 user: wyoung tags: trunk
Expanded the "Sync over push" section of fossil-v-git beyond the technology to cover the "why" behind the decision. Moved the Jim McCarthy quote up to be with it. check-in: 69e64183 user: wyoung tags: trunk
Rewrote "No rebasing" section in fossil-v-git for clarity check-in: 970e9173 user: wyoung tags: trunk
Rewrote the "Trust over hierarchy" point in fossil-v-git for clarity. check-in: d178c782 user: wyoung tags: trunk
Removed a repeated word in fossil-v-git check-in: b798e89a user: wyoung tags: trunk
Recast the "Anonymous contribution discouraged" point in fossil-v-git as "No easy drive-by contributions". check-in: 73381119 user: wyoung tags: trunk
Moved the comment about patch files in fossil-v-git down to a footnote and expanded on the point. It isn't a Git vs Fossil difference, but we need to explain why "just use a patch file" isn't a good answer to the common "allow easy drive-by contributions" wish. check-in: 4dcbd09f user: wyoung tags: trunk
Correct minor syntax error that was likely never hit. Leaf check-in: d85b2edb user: andybradford tags: test-updates
If the setting is long enough to fill in the format specifier---like the email-send-relayhost setting---there will be no whitespace after it unless it has a value set, so make the regex handle this particular state better. check-in: a8656f58 user: andybradford tags: test-updates
Update list of known settings which had diverged due to newly added features. check-in: 72e71e90 user: andybradford tags: test-updates
Improved documentation of the --https option on "fossil server". check-in: 3c602dd7 user: drh tags: trunk
In the hierarchical forum display, make sure that the edited post number is displayed, not the original post number. check-in: 776ce9e6 user: drh tags: trunk
Give sequential numbers to all display posts in the forum, and reference other forum posts in a thread by the sequence number. check-in: 5a7267d9 user: drh tags: trunk
In the hierarchical display of the forum, go back to strict hierarchical indentation. But, reduce the width of indentation for deeply nested discussions. check-in: 0cec52e0 user: drh tags: trunk
Added info about fossil undo, fossil amend, and shunning to the fossil-v-git doc, with comparison to the Git way of changing history. check-in: e878d54d user: wyoung tags: trunk
Reworked several sections of the doc as sub-sections of "Linux vs. SQLite", which now acts as a frame for those sections. Some of these sections are expanded while others disappear entirely, most especially the "BSD vs GPL" argument that we started off on the now-merged branch to try and refine. We replace a discussion of licensing with one of community structure and our approach to patch acceptance, which is more of what the old licensing discussion was trying to get at without getting into the details of software licensing per se. check-in: 69ec89b5 user: wyoung tags: trunk
Code cleanup: Add a lot of "const" qualifiers for static (string) arrays, where appropriate. This allows the C compiler to optimize more check-in: 70a94d09 user: jan.nijtmans tags: trunk
Reduced redundancy in the new feature set size vs ease of use discussion in fossil-v-git. Closed-Leaf check-in: a52e6845 user: wyoung tags: bsd-vs-gpl
When committing without parent-id (additional "initial" commits), make sure the branch-name is set to "trunk" when not provided otherwise. check-in: 0fd6cf16 user: jan.nijtmans tags: trunk
Rewrote the "Accepting Contributions" section of the fossil-v-git doc to focus on the size of each tool in terms of SLOC and features, rather than on licensing details. check-in: 5fe84e70 user: wyoung tags: bsd-vs-gpl
Missing db_end_transaction(0) check-in: b0db865f user: jan.nijtmans tags: trunk
Fix the in-reply-to link for hierarchical forum display to maintain the hierarchical display. Make the link say "previous" if linking to the previous post in the thread. check-in: 1b63ab70 user: drh tags: trunk
Try to omit unnecessary indentation on the hierarchical forum display. Include an "in reply to" mark on the hierarchical display. check-in: 97697b79 user: drh tags: trunk
Fixed some grammar errors in fossil-v-git's new "Accepting Contributions" material. check-in: 34d758bf user: wyoung tags: bsd-vs-gpl
Small tweak to prev check-in: d1c61803 user: wyoung tags: bsd-vs-gpl
Turned a redundancy in the "Scale" section of fossil-v-git into a clearer point. Also added a bit on Fossil's later birthday and our take on its consequences. check-in: 30a74d7e user: wyoung tags: bsd-vs-gpl
Renamed named anchor for "Accepting Contributions" in fossil-v-git from "license" to "contrib". check-in: 074b896e user: wyoung tags: bsd-vs-gpl
Re-cast the "BSD vs GPL" section as "Accepting Contributions." In the end, that's what the difference in license amounts to. This makes the section longer, but the change includes a link to skip past the actual licensing discussion for those who don't want to read our attempt at an unbiased discussion of GPL vs BSD, since even if we've succeded, we won't always agree with the user's biases! check-in: 75e93e35 user: wyoung tags: bsd-vs-gpl
Another bit of prose polishing in fossil-v-git check-in: fcdefd97 user: wyoung tags: bsd-vs-gpl
Prose polishing in the "License" section of fossil-v-git check-in: eebd7135 user: wyoung tags: bsd-vs-gpl
Moved the "BSD vs GPL" section up in the fossil-v-git doc and made it a sub-section of a new "Linux vs SQLite" section which has two other sub-sections: "Development Organization," which contains an expanded version of what used to be called "Cathedral vs. Bazaar" and "Scale," which contains what is left of the prior version's "Linux vs. SQLite" section. These are sub-sections of a common parent because they were mutually repetitive, and they're all aspects of the "Linux vs. SQLite" comparison, not separate things at all. check-in: bab2656d user: wyoung tags: bsd-vs-gpl
When removing a directory on Windows, make sure it is a real directory (i.e. not a junction, symbolic link, etc). check-in: 9bb25a28 user: mistachkin tags: trunk
Eliminate all usage of Tcl_GetStringResult(), since that causes loss of Tcl_Obj representation in Tcl 8.x (this is solved in Tcl 9.0) check-in: 743e166c user: jan.nijtmans tags: trunk
Import the command-line tool fix from SQLite (without the other changes on SQLite trunk) and then disable double-quoted string literals again. check-in: 28261276 user: drh tags: trunk
Disable the SQLITE_DQS=0 compile-time option. It turns out the ".schema" command in the SQLite CLI makes use of double-quoted string literals. check-in: 05ca5d96 user: drh tags: trunk
Change the default hash policy to "sha3". Bump the version number to 2.10 to start the next development cycle. check-in: b4520f5e user: drh tags: trunk
Version 2.9 check-in: 0fd79a3e user: drh tags: trunk, release, version-2.9
Fix a typo in a check-in race warning message. check-in: 66f06fe2 user: drh tags: trunk
Do not invoke db_lget() in the sync protocol if the local checkout database is unavailable (such as when running "fossil all sync"). check-in: 0dba0f4b user: drh tags: trunk
Typo fix check-in: bd0b86e9 user: wyoung tags: bsd-vs-gpl
Added "and use" to fossil-v-git: the license has effects that extend beyond design and implementation. check-in: 2cc9036e user: wyoung tags: bsd-vs-gpl
Prose tightening tweak check-in: d2a77c30 user: wyoung tags: bsd-vs-gpl
Reduced repeition of the "deisgn and implementation" bits of "Fossil vs Git" in the new "GPL vs BSD" material. check-in: 4f293ddf user: wyoung tags: bsd-vs-gpl
Rewrote the opening paragraph to "GPL vs BSD" in "Fossil vs Git" doc to make it clear that we're not trying to persuade you to make our same choice. Also removed two paragraphs making a judgement about the nature of each license for the same reason. check-in: d48fdb41 user: wyoung tags: bsd-vs-gpl
Moved a sentence from the final paragraph up to the first in the "GPL vs BSD" section of the "Fossil vs. Git" doc. It was something of a non-sequitur where it was, and in its new position, it serves to bookend the discussion: we lay out our proposition at the top and come to a conclusion that we believe supports that proposition by the end. check-in: cb1b007c user: wyoung tags: bsd-vs-gpl
Removed a final sentence in a paragraph that basically just restated the paragraph in the new Fossil vs Git doc. check-in: f5a39a7e user: wyoung tags: bsd-vs-gpl
Distilled the points about "GPL + CLA = commrecial interests" to only the bits essential to the "Fossil vs Git" argument. check-in: ba1fa73b user: wyoung tags: bsd-vs-gpl
Applied rewording suggested in check-in: 840f2b39 user: wyoung tags: bsd-vs-gpl
Toned down the "corporate overlord" stuff in the "Fossil vs Git" doc. check-in: 13392797 user: wyoung tags: bsd-vs-gpl
Changed "pneumatic ratchet wrench" to "impact wrench" and added a Wikipedia link to make an analogy clearer in the "Fossil vs Git" doc. check-in: 6e338346 user: wyoung tags: bsd-vs-gpl
Clarified the consequences of a CLA on Fossil and on FOSS projects in general in the "Fossil vs Git" doc. check-in: fffa6769 user: wyoung tags: bsd-vs-gpl
Add documentation on the "pragma ci-unlock" message in the sync protocol. check-in: 1eefb8db user: drh tags: trunk
Clarity tweak to the "why CLA + BSD" justification in the "Fossil vs Git" doc. check-in: 633830fe user: wyoung tags: bsd-vs-gpl
Improved error messages when a commit fails due to a lock conflict: Show the age of the lock in addition to the user. Suggest using the new --override-lock option instead of --allow-fork. Expire locks after any successful check-in from the same check-out. check-in: 3a5caa86 user: drh tags: trunk
Better text justifying the use of a CLA in conjunction with the GPL in the "Fossil vs Git" article. check-in: 838c9efe user: wyoung tags: bsd-vs-gpl
Merged in Linux vs SQLite stuff from trunk check-in: f5321731 user: wyoung tags: bsd-vs-gpl
Clarified the scale of the Linux vs SQLite projects in the same-named section of the Git vs Fossil doc, tightened up the discussion a bit, and added hard SLOC stats to ground it all. Most controversially, added the rattle wrench analogy. check-in: 69e7827d user: wyoung tags: trunk
Fix a typo in the document, as reported on the forum. "fossil all status" should be "fossil all changes". check-in: 9b51c42a user: drh tags: trunk
Grammar fix to previous check-in: 7cfe191b user: wyoung tags: bsd-vs-gpl
Rewrote the "GPL vs. BSD" section in www/ See forum post here for justification and discussion: check-in: 68a7563e user: wyoung tags: bsd-vs-gpl
Assorted improvements to www/ added hyperlinks, fixed some spelling, capitalization, and grammar problems, clarified "Linux" vs "Linux kernel", clarified the description of the git-worktree feature, moved punctuation inside double quotes (typography), and added a few detail paragraphs. check-in: fd990128 user: wyoung tags: trunk
Add missing semicolon in the anti-robot defense javascript. check-in: 45199458 user: drh tags: trunk
Minor change to the "aboutdownload" document. check-in: fd8d37e2 user: drh tags: trunk
Make sure the backoffice does not try to reuse file descriptors that it has previously closed. check-in: 458ced35 user: drh tags: trunk
Add a reference to the idea of a "Conflict-Free Replicated Datatypes" to the sync documentation. check-in: 2b3569d1 user: drh tags: trunk
Update the built-in SQLite to the 3.29.0 release. check-in: 8c9eeb01 user: drh tags: trunk
Back out check-in [a52c3e1256288c7d]. Perhaps the "test-move-repository" command should be promoted to a supported and documented command, but I don't think "local-repo" is the correct name, and in any event, the command needs additional work before it is given first-class status. For example, typing "fossil local-repo" without the 3rd term should show the current repository, not give an error. check-in: aa3f554c user: drh tags: trunk
Update custom MinGW makefile. check-in: 1c88ed9b user: mistachkin tags: trunk
Renamed the test-move-repository command to local-repo, since it's useful for more than just testing, and there's no good alternative in the main command set otherwise. It is especially useful with local-only repos, since that means use of the sync and remote-url commands isn't the correct way to change the location of the local repo. check-in: a52c3e12 user: wyoung tags: trunk
Fix an apparent bug in the "fossil grep" command causing it to miss the first character of each line. check-in: 5421caa2 user: drh tags: trunk
Update the built-in SQLite to the first 3.29.0 beta for testing. Enable the -DSQLITE_DQS=0 compile-time option for Fossil, thus preventing SQLite from using double-quoted string literals by default. check-in: 0c0f6db7 user: drh tags: trunk
Update autosetup to 0.6.9-71785c7e and Jim Tcl to 0.78-27-ga5a84b1. Leaf check-in: 2211bc2a user: mistachkin tags: autosetupAndJimTcl
Update Jim Tcl to 0.78. check-in: 907f66bf user: mistachkin tags: autosetupAndJimTcl
For the tar / zip web pages, avoid dangling references involving zRid. check-in: dbe16d7b user: mistachkin tags: trunk
When activating one of the new "in reply to" links, tag the newly-focused post with CSS class forumSelReplyTo so that it can be visually marked. Added default forumSelReplyTo CSS class which uses the same border as forumTime but with a dotted style. EDIT: do not merge with trunk - there are problems to solve (if feasible) regarding linking to edited posts, as their IDs are of course different, as well as linking responses made to deleted posts. Leaf check-in: 1bf7985d user: stephan tags: forum-reply-links
Replaced the forum post DIV ids forum{RID} with post-{short-UUID}, which allowed removal of the new A NAME tag and enables permalinks (RIDs are volatile). Added forumPost class to all post DIVs, to hopefully simplify some upcoming JS code. check-in: 69364ba5 user: stephan tags: forum-reply-links
Switched Immediately-Invoked Function Expression parentheses from Crockford-style to the more conventional/portable style. See for details. check-in: 5d9d62d8 user: stephan tags: trunk
Per request in forumpost/9fd5135acc, added intra-document links to each response which link back to the being-replied-to post within the same page (using an #anchor-tag), without reloading from the server. check-in: 78721d4a user: stephan tags: forum-reply-links
Improvements to the help-text for /brlist. check-in: 611fe9b0 user: drh tags: trunk
Add a new test-case in the graph test for the /leaves page. check-in: 3bc1a0e8 user: drh tags: trunk
Improved layout of graphs with the TIMELINE_DISJOINT property, such as the list of leaves. check-in: 4fc08f94 user: drh tags: trunk
Rename the --save-password option on "fossil clone" to --save-http-password, since it only works for HTTP. check-in: 22517bab user: drh tags: trunk
Update the change log and the sync protocol documentation for the new check-in locking mechanism that tries to prevent race-condition forks. check-in: 2d7a8a83 user: drh tags: trunk
In the "fossil diff" command, the use of --tclsh implies --tk. check-in: 2655a2d4 user: drh tags: trunk
Add the --tclsh command to "fossil diff" in order to specify an alternative TCL interpreter. check-in: 9fc945c0 user: drh tags: trunk
Steps to prevent accidental forks during a commit when two users try to commit to the same parent at the same time. The first user to do the autosync pull takes a lock which causes the second user to get a "would fork" error, unless the --allow-fork or --force options are used. check-in: 03cc3329 user: drh tags: trunk
Add the --save-password option to "fossil clone". Put the command-line options for "fossil clone" in alphabetical order. check-in: 421e6bb3 user: drh tags: trunk
For "fossil clone help", put options in alphabetical order. Closed-Leaf check-in: d5c6f478 user: drh tags: save-http-url-password
Change the name of the option to just --save-password. check-in: 76e158ad user: drh tags: save-http-url-password
Enhance the "fossil tag ls" command to allow filtering by tag type. check-in: 971a1a99 user: drh tags: trunk
Added the --save-http-url-password option to the clone command to make it skip the "remember password (Y/n)?" prompt if the password was given in an HTTP URL. We avoid this for ssh:// URLs since you have pre-shared keys, SSH agents, and such to avoid the need in that case. Without this feature, you can't script around it by piping "echo y" through the command because the "remember password" feature as of trunk only works when isatty(0), which will be false when Fossil is downstream from a pipe like that. check-in: 2600b771 user: wyoung tags: save-http-url-password
Small fixes to check-in: cdd5e576 user: wyoung tags: trunk
Assorted improvements to the new material in www/, mainly in the way of clarifications and moderation of tone. check-in: 862b77b6 user: wyoung tags: trunk
Upgrade to openssl 1.1.1c. Use single-argument "expr" in auto.def. Update custom mingw makefile. check-in: 50501328 user: jan.nijtmans tags: trunk
Because the sync status updates all occur on the same line make this client warning show up on its own line so the output doesn't get cluttered. Closed-Leaf check-in: 82d69e7f user: andybradford tags: no-race-commit
Enhance the "fossil tag ls" command to allow filtering by tag type. Closed-Leaf check-in: 2d3025ad user: andybradford tags: taglist-tagtype
When doing a commit with autosync enabled, the first autosync now takes a temporary (24-hour) lock on the baseline commit in order to prevent any other connected user from simultaneously committing and creating an accidental fork. check-in: 222fc681 user: drh tags: no-race-commit
More clarifications in the "How Can Forks Divide Development Effort?" section of, primarily in explaining how each user in the example arrives at the view shown in the swim lane diagram. There were multiple implicit possilibities before, and some were misinterpreting it. check-in: 70a7db80 user: wyoung tags: trunk
