<h2>8.0 Card Summary</h2>

The following table summarizes the various kinds of cards that appear
on Fossil artifacts. A blank entry means that combination of card and
artifact is not legal. A number or range of numbers indicates the number
of times a card may (or must) appear in the corresponding artifact type.
e.g. a value of 1 indicates a required unique card and 1+ indicates that one
or more such cards are required.

These eight artifact types are described in the following sections.

In the current implementation (as of 2009-01-25) the artifacts that
make up a fossil repository are stored as delta- and zlib-compressed
blobs in an <a href="http://www.sqlite.org/">SQLite</a> database.  This
is an implementation detail and might change in a future release.  For
the purpose of this article "file format" means the format of the artifacts,
not how the artifacts are stored on disk.  It is the artifact format that
................................................................................

A single W card provides wiki text for the document associated with the
technote.  The format of the W card is exactly the same as for a
[#wikichng | wiki artifact].

The Z card is the required checksum over the rest of the artifact.

<a name="remark"></a>
<h2>8.0 Remarks</h2>

A remark artifact holds textual remarks that are added to a check-in.
Remarks can hold expanded commentary about the check-in, notes from
code-reviews, information about problems discovered in the check-in,
or other auxiliary textual information about the check-in.
The remark artifact is a new artifact added to this specification in
early 2017.
The following cards are allowed on an technote artifact:

<blockquote>
<b>D</b> <i>time-and-date-stamp</i><br />
<b>G</b> <i>checkin-uuid</i><br />
<b>N</b> <i>mimetype</i><br />
<b>U</b> <i>user-name</i><br />
<b>W</b> <i>size</i> <b>\n</b> <i>text</i> <b>\n</b><br />
<b>Z</b> <i>checksum</i>
</blockquote>

A single D card is required to give the date and time when the
remark artifact was created.

A single G card specifies the check-in to which the remark is
attached.

The optional N card specifies the mimetype of the text of the technote
that is contained in the W card.  If the N card is omitted, then the
W card text mimetype is assumed to be text/x-fossil, which is the
Fossil wiki format.

A single W card provides wiki text for the document associated with the
technote.  The format of the W card is exactly the same as for a
[#wikichng | wiki artifact].

The optional U card gives name of the user who entered the technote.

The Z card is the required checksum over the rest of the artifact.

<a name="summary"></a>
<h2>9.0 Card Summary</h2>

The following table summarizes the various kinds of cards that appear
on Fossil artifacts. A blank entry means that combination of card and
artifact is not legal. A number or range of numbers indicates the number
of times a card may (or must) appear in the corresponding artifact type.
e.g. a value of 1 indicates a required unique card and 1+ indicates that one
or more such cards are required.
