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 number. 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 ? example 2011-04-10T20:46:20 [acdf123456] commit message (user: joe tags: RELEASE-1.6.99 tiger-branch ) <hr /><i>anonymous added on 2011-04-11 10:45:51 UTC:</i><br /> 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 into RELEASE- and 1.6.10
