Title: Make timeline machine readable
Status: Closed Type: Feature_Request

I would like timeline to produce output that is machine friendly to scripts
that process it. 

I am trying to automate the building process of my software and
I would like to use tags of the form: RELEASE-1.6.10 which can be
embedded in the program so that users get a nice human-friendly version 

Timeline has the feature of showing all checkins that descend from current.
The intention is to feed this into a script which cna detect if a RELEASE
has already been used.

The problem is that timeline sometimes splits a tag onto two lines.

Here's an example:

=== 2011-04-10 ===
20:44:26 [59a3f097fb] junk (user: davidevans tags: tiger-branch, RELEASE-
         1.6.10, jjjj)

This makes life very difficult for script writers.

Could we please have an option of timeline that produces machine-readable
text ?

In my message, the posting software has gone and combined separate lines back into one.

Believe me, fossil really does split RELEASE-1.6.10
