200 check-ins occurring around e91de28b69ca4e2a.

2019-08-10
23:04
Added "Forum Posts" choice to the "Activity Reports" sub section of /stat. (Closed-Leaf check-in: f39e47a1 user: wyoung tags: forum-post-activity-report)
18:07
Refine HOME search order on Windows to maintain backward compatibility with the previous search hierarchy. (Closed-Leaf check-in: c07cbcd3 user: mistachkin tags: windows-env-usage-v2)
15:34
Merge in from trunk. (check-in: 0f9f2e40 user: andybradford tags: test-updates)
03:44
Updated the temp file and dir location documentation in www/env-opts.md to match what the current code does. (Closed-Leaf check-in: 1f63724e user: wyoung tags: windows-env-usage)
03:23
Inserted %USERPROFILE% between %FOSSIL_HOME% and %LOCALAPPDATA% in the code that chooses where the user's account-wide _fossil file lives on Windows. (This is the Windows analog to the ~/.fossil file on POSIX systems.) Also updated the docs to match. (check-in: 15176c8a user: wyoung tags: windows-env-usage)
2019-08-09
21:08
Update the /stat page to show forum statistics. (check-in: 29141af7 user: drh tags: trunk)
20:56
Fixes to the new markdown hyperlink logic to handle the case there the target URL is not defined. (check-in: 44545eef user: drh tags: trunk)
20:15
Contributing PowerShell script Set-ChildProject.ps1. This script wraps the code for converting a project into a child project into an easy to use PowerShell script. The script should be cross platform, but was only tested on Windows 10. (Leaf check-in: 0b70cf6d user: ckennedy tags: windows-tools)
18:14
Enhance markdown to use the same hyperlink target resolving logic as Fossil wiki. That means that wiki page names and check-in and ticket hashes can now be used as markdown hyperlink URLs. Also enhance markdown hyperlinks so that if the display text is an empty string, the URL is used as the display text. (check-in: 774fb771 user: drh tags: trunk)
16:40
Two additional places where links to /markup_help are useful. (check-in: 5f328d9f user: drh tags: trunk)
16:37
Fix up the markdown rules to include recent enhancements to fenced code blocks. On "Markup Style:" entry boxes, provide a hyperlink for easy access to the rule sheets. (check-in: 18a84ed8 user: drh tags: trunk)
15:57
Further work on the fenced code blocks of markdown. Allow blank lines in the middle of a fenced code block. And also allow ~ character (three or more) to serve as the delimiter for fenced code blocks. (check-in: c7600da4 user: drh tags: trunk)
12:15
Added an aside in fossil-v-git about Git's minority use of high-level scripting languages aside from its dominant one, POSIX shell, with a comparison to Fossil's own use of high-level scripting. (check-in: 1296ee46 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
11:56
Simplified the table line items for the hash algorithm point in fossil-v-git.wiki as "SHA-3" vs "SHA-2". Details we delegate to the discussion prose below. (check-in: 595559f4 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
11:50
Expanded the discussion on user learning time vs arcance feature set size in fossil-v-git.wiki, within section 2.5.3 "Accepting Contributions". (check-in: 1b479aff user: wyoung tags: trunk)
10:50
Small tweaks to the prose in section 2.5 in fossil-v-git.wiki (check-in: 466d74c8 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
2019-08-08
23:04
Fix the www/fossil_prompt.sh Fossilized Bash Prompt script so that it works even if the current check-in comment contains grave accents (backticks). (check-in: c49f3ef4 user: drh tags: trunk)
22:26
Further refine the fenced code block rendering in markdown to try to comply with the CommonMark spec. (check-in: 81caad6c user: drh tags: trunk)
20:35
A triple grave accent quoted text (```....```) in markdown is rendered as <pre>...</pre>. (check-in: 2077ffe6 user: drh tags: trunk)
05:55
Moved the comment about learning from Git's design mistakes to a place higher up in the document where it makes more sense. It was almost a non sequitur where it was before. (check-in: 0e0d76ee user: wyoung tags: trunk)
05:44
Clarity pass on the new "Portable" section of fossil-v-git.wiki article. (check-in: 4b574be4 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
05:11
Deferred discussion of data modeling from the intro of fossil-v-git to section 2.3 where it's fully covered. This material now talks more clearly about Fossil's hybrid NoSQL/relational data model, rather than handwave it as "relational". (check-in: e2998923 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
04:42
Added Digital Ocean pricing footnote to fossil-v-git.wiki to back up the GitLab comparison. Also clarified the "smallest thing you could call a server" comment. (check-in: efc873ec user: wyoung tags: trunk)
04:34
Typo fix (check-in: 431245ed user: wyoung tags: trunk)
04:33
Reworked the intro to fossil-v-git.wiki to flow better and be clearer. (check-in: 16cb9c02 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
04:23
Typo fix pass on www/* (check-in: 79c2cb08 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
2019-08-07
19:10
Have the test-httpmsg command try to open the repository database in case that repository database contains TLS certificate exceptions. (check-in: bf25835f user: drh tags: trunk)
17:39
Add the FOSSIL_NONCE parameter to extension CGI. (check-in: 3f0ade55 user: drh tags: trunk)
13:22
Adjust the SQL authorizer to ignore SQLITE_READ calls for transient internal-use-only tables. SQLite should not be issuing those, but some legacy versions of SQLite do. It is harmless to ignore them. (check-in: b26967cf user: drh tags: trunk)
12:55
Remove the SQLITE_ENABLE_DBPAGE_VTAB requirement from external SQLite libraries, as without it only the ".recover" command in "fossil sql" is omitted, and that is an obscure case. (check-in: a4d71525 user: drh tags: trunk)
12:49
Fix an incorrect comment in sqlcompattest.c. (check-in: e2426e83 user: drh tags: trunk)
12:45
Fix incorrect requirements in sqlcompattest.c. (check-in: 156476b2 user: drh tags: trunk)
12:29
Add the LDFLAGS parameter when building the sqlcompttest test program. (check-in: 4a15ccda user: drh tags: trunk)
11:50
More details on althttpd in the section of www/ssl.wiki that discusses the stunnel + althttpd + fossil serving option used by fossil-scm.org and sqlite.org. (check-in: 9c747e1c user: wyoung tags: trunk)
11:34
Add an SQLite compatibility test program and run that program during the "./configure" if the --disable-internal-sqlite option is used in order to verify that the system SQLite library has all of the capabilities that we need. (check-in: 350c627a user: drh tags: trunk)
11:32
Clarity and accuracy pass on the git-worktree issue in fossil-v-git.wiki. (check-in: 92dc1021 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
11:13
Merged two lists of similarities between Fossil and Git into a single instance up at the top of fossil-v-git.wiki. (check-in: 3609ff75 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
10:39
Language moderation in fossil-v-git.wiki (check-in: 5e380ec3 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
10:38
Clarified the issue of building and installing Git vs Fossil from source vs as binary packages in fossil-v-git.wiki (check-in: 00af3dbf user: wyoung tags: trunk)
10:17
Added a named anchor to fossil-v-git.wiki doc (check-in: e88ae89c user: wyoung tags: trunk)
10:16
Many improvements to section "2.3 Durable" in fossil-v-git.wiki, largely involving the merger of a near-repeat of the same points down in section 3.1, but also adding more information emphasizing the durability of SQLite DBs in general and Fossil repos in specific. (check-in: cd989fed user: wyoung tags: trunk)
09:45
Added a new section to fossil-v-git.wiki, "2.4 Portable" covering how much more portable Fossil is than Git and its common third-party extensions. (check-in: 64a33a64 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
08:41
Added info about althttpd to footnote 2 in fossil-v-git.wiki, which gives details about the web serving configuration of fossil-scm.org. (check-in: 5866461e user: wyoung tags: trunk)
04:02
A better hyperlink for althttpd documentation in ssl.wiki. (check-in: 977109d3 user: drh tags: trunk)
02:37
Merged two nearly-redundant points about branch names syncing in fossil-v-git doc. (check-in: 16ea738a user: wyoung tags: trunk)
02:31
Updated summary table at the top of fossil-v-git doc to track the recent organization changes. (check-in: 1c9b1771 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
02:29
Prior section 2.5 in fossil-v-git is now section 2.4.4, since it's part of the "2.4 Linux vs SQLite" story. Little change in content; primarily just an organization fix. (check-in: e9628d70 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
02:26
Extracted part of section 2.1 and merged it with the entire prior content of section 2.5 in fossil-v-git as a new section, "2.2 Efficient and Effective". These were two partially-redundant sections covering Git's sprawl of tools, third-party dependencies, and extensions vs Fossil's self-contained single-binary nature. The new section combines all of that. (check-in: 5c24bee9 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
01:53
Minor update to footnote 2 on the fossil-v-git page. (check-in: 754a6a05 user: drh tags: trunk)
01:45
Added footnote 2 to the fossil-v-git doc, which explains that not "everything" on fossil-scm.org is in the main Fossil self-hosting repo, and links to info explaining the details. (check-in: d23a8453 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
01:00
Tightened up footnote 1 in fossil-v-git to delegate its points more fully to the new mirrorlimitations.md doc. (check-in: 0ef227b7 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
00:53
Updated the "A Pure SHA3 Future" section of www/hashpolicy.wiki to track the recent decision to make "sha3" mode the default in Fossil 2.10. (check-in: c6e8558f user: wyoung tags: trunk)
00:42
Added section 2.8 to the fossil-v-git doc: "Hash Algorithm: SHA-3 vs SHA-2 vs SHA-1". (check-in: 42b8890c user: wyoung tags: trunk)
00:19
Updates to the mirrorlimitations.md document. (check-in: 31bbb40f user: drh tags: trunk)
2019-08-06
23:56
Added paragraph about hosting efficiency of Fossil vs Gitlab (to make it an apples-to-apples comparison) to the fossil-v-git doc. (check-in: f631c7c8 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
23:40
Expanded on the point about "next" checkin in fossil-v-git doc (check-in: 47e495d2 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
23:20
Removed some points in section 3.1 of fossil-v-git (Features found in Fossil but missing from Git) which are already covered above. (check-in: c5a74af4 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
23:15
Added point about installing Fossil on Windows vs installing Git to fossil-v-git doc. (check-in: 4c22c705 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
23:11
Added web UI point to fossil-v-git (check-in: 6494d42f user: wyoung tags: trunk)
23:08
Added RBAC point to the fossil-v-git article, and tweaked the surrounding text. (check-in: bd7c47c3 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
10:45
Updated explanatory text at the top of www/image-format-vs-repo-size.ipynb to track the recent update for Python 3. (check-in: 25a18bee user: wyoung tags: trunk)
10:17
Updated image-format-vs-repo-size.ipynb to run within the Fossil tree checkout, to run under the Python 3 JupyterLab kernel, and to have the output SVG embedded in the notebook so it shows up in the notebook viewer without needing to run it first. This updates the associated separate SVG file as well, so the two SVG instantiations match. (check-in: f85d9247 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
01:49
Fix crash. (Leaf check-in: 9d37ebbe user: mistachkin tags: winExtCgi)
2019-08-05
16:35
Initial draft changes to support 'extcgi' on Win32. (check-in: fbe1edda user: mistachkin tags: winExtCgi)
16:15
Update custom MinGW makefile. (check-in: 759b1002 user: mistachkin tags: trunk)
2019-08-04
22:56
Merge trunk (Leaf check-in: fc5f88d6 user: jan.nijtmans tags: cleanX)
20:26
Fix a harmless compiler warning. (check-in: 95a6a658 user: drh tags: trunk)
20:23
Improvements to the Security-Audit page - mostly in providing additional information about the files in the CGI extension folder. (check-in: a3bc6552 user: drh tags: trunk)
2019-08-03
19:49
Fix the repolist function for CGI server invocations, apparently broken by check-in [ec56c69fe98d26d9] (check-in: 534b0600 user: drh tags: trunk)
01:07
merge to logical conclusion (nop) (check-in: f4f9c109 user: bch tags: trunk)
2019-08-02
18:13
Avoid the clearenv() interface (which seems to be missing on NetBSD according to [2d4c16df5a9e61c2]) and simply set the global "environ" variable directly. (check-in: d72aa24c user: drh tags: trunk)
18:01
Added a comment to fslsrv in place of the just-removed parameter to make it clear what's going on here. (check-in: df2eb08e user: wyoung tags: trunk)
18:00
Made --baseurl parameter optional in tools/fslsrv since Fossil complains if you give only a top-level URL; it's right, it doesn't need --baseurl in that case. (check-in: 8b2b2328 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
17:34
Make sure all CGI environment variables are loaded into the CGI cache prior to clearing the environment, when launching extension CGIs. (check-in: c6b4d80e user: drh tags: trunk)
17:23
The CGI extension mechanism now passes the HTTPS environment variable. (check-in: f5fe2210 user: drh tags: trunk)
14:29
Add the mirrorlimitations.md document. Update cross-references. (check-in: 41d6540d user: drh tags: trunk)
13:34
Update the security audit to report when extension CGI is available. (check-in: e2cad541 user: drh tags: trunk)
05:09
proper env() handler for (at least) NetBSD (Closed-Leaf check-in: 2d4c16df user: bch tags: env_handler)
00:10
The test-httpmsg command now sends the payload uncompressed unless the new --compress option is used. (check-in: c31ff76f user: drh tags: trunk)
2019-08-01
23:31
Implement the fossil_clearenv() function for Win32. (check-in: 61fd10ec user: mistachkin tags: trunk)
21:05
When rendering HTML pages using the fossil-doc class and the data-title="..." attribute, reverse the HTML escapes in the argument to data-title since they will be reencoded prior to rendering. (check-in: 54e01c60 user: drh tags: trunk)
19:30
Clear all environment variables prior to invoking a CGI extension. (Works on posix - need to fix it for windows.) (check-in: ed63bdd7 user: drh tags: trunk)
14:17
Add the FOSSIL_URI environment variable to the CGI extension mechanism. (check-in: 7b2b9d69 user: drh tags: trunk)
2019-07-31
12:21
Fixed fossil_strcmp() usage in cgi_init() when in JSON mode. Through some extremely serendipitous fluke, its broken usage just happened to work until a bit was removed from that function in [ec56c69f] which, purely coincidentally, caused the bug (mine, from 2011!) to start triggering when x-www-form-urlencoded forms were submitted (login/logout). Before that, the buggy block never got a chance to trigger for those forms. (check-in: 115a70b2 user: stephan tags: trunk)
08:09
Merged in autosetupAndJimTcl branch (autosetup updates). (check-in: 51d006f8 user: stephan tags: trunk)
2019-07-30
18:55
Fix the "fossil server" command on windows so that it honors the --https option. (check-in: 8ed91bbe user: drh tags: trunk)
10:28
Restore the full CGI extension documentation that was somehow truncated by an earlier commit. (check-in: 4130a22c user: drh tags: trunk)
01:17
Merge in updates from trunk. (check-in: 7e7258b3 user: andybradford tags: test-updates)
2019-07-29
20:02
Improved documentation of the repolist-skin setting. (check-in: 02bdcf5e user: drh tags: trunk)
18:17
When doing a repository list, use the first repository that has a non-zero value for the "repolist-skin" setting as the skin for the list. If the "repolist-skin" setting is 2 and if the repository list is coming from a directory scan, the omit that repository from the list. All repositories are always shown, regardless of the "repolist-skin" setting for a "fossil all ui" or "fossil all server" generated repository list. (check-in: 8f5399bc user: drh tags: trunk)
18:14
Fix the repolist-skin setting so that it sets up URL on the header menu correctly. Back out the stylesheet hack is that is now covered by the same fix. (Closed-Leaf check-in: 6df7a853 user: drh tags: repolist-skin)
17:25
Merge fixes from trunk. (check-in: 8a0753de user: drh tags: repolist-skin)
15:12
Enhancements to the copy/paste SVG icon and to the global options help page. (check-in: 93b0afc8 user: drh tags: trunk)
14:19
Fix the build for -DFOSSIL_ENABLE_TH1_DOCS. The build was broken by check-in [ed2def5ffb96d74c] and on trunk by [ec56c69fe98d26d9]. (check-in: 8abeb627 user: drh tags: trunk)
14:06
When to a repolist, if any of the repositories have a non-zero repolist-skin setting, use that repository as the skin for the listing. If the repolist-skin setting is 2, then omit that repository from the list for directory-scan lists, but always show all repos for a "fossil all ui" list. This *almost* works, but still has some small issues. This is an incremental check-in. (check-in: 958e0bdc user: drh tags: repolist-skin)
08:28
Move each command-line option to their own paragraph, for consistency with the document structure in "Environment Variables and Global Options", as this seems easier to browse and search. The explicit line-break between the two options was wiped with automatic cleanup of trailing spaces by [e2751b18af]. (Closed-Leaf check-in: 14f2ba04 user: florian tags: svg-and-md-formatting)
08:14
Trim spaces from the CSS background image SVG data URI for the copy icon, to make it look more compact -- this may not necessarily reduce the overall size of the final gzipped CSS resource delivered by the Fossil web server. The uncompressed source code for the icon is on the branch/tooltip-copyhash wiki page, with a comment why the variant with the "inaccurately" calculated outline looks better. (check-in: 0be9a2db user: florian tags: svg-and-md-formatting)
00:12
Enhancements to the CGI extension documentation. (check-in: f80f7530 user: drh tags: trunk)
2019-07-27
17:11
Enhancements to the CGI extension documentation. Update the 2.10 change log to mention this enhancement and other changes. (check-in: dfa5d509 user: drh tags: trunk)
15:30
Update the CGI extension documentation. Improved filename security in the CGI extension subsystem. (check-in: 12c8cc70 user: drh tags: trunk)
2019-07-26
20:54
Do not allow /ext to return files whose names begin with "." or "-" even if those files occur in the top-level extroot directory. (check-in: e91de28b user: drh tags: trunk)
18:15
Preliminary documentation for the /ext mechanism. (check-in: 893fca3a user: drh tags: trunk)
13:35
Fix the fullcap() SQL function so that it correctly expands the capabilities of Admin and Setup users to include everything. (check-in: 384fdb6b user: drh tags: trunk)
06:14
Removed an old (#if 0)'d-out block - the permissions check it was blocking out is performed further down in the function. (check-in: 7bd4bca2 user: stephan tags: trunk)
2019-07-25
23:56
Neither Setup nor Admin users get Write-Unversioned permission by default. And only Setup users are able to include Write-Unversioned permission when editing a user. (check-in: 9ca4eb2b user: drh tags: trunk)
21:11
Add the /ext page that will run CGI or deliver static content from a document hierarchy specified by the --extroot command-line option on "fossil server" or the extroot: option in the CGI file. (check-in: ec56c69f user: drh tags: trunk)
21:09
Remove an unused variable. (Closed-Leaf check-in: c2a98a5d user: drh tags: extension-cgi)
20:53
Ensure that the cgi_decode_post_parameters() routine does not delete the raw content used by the /xfer page. (check-in: af3a8dbe user: drh tags: extension-cgi)
20:20
Enable the extroot: setting in CGI. (check-in: c116a999 user: drh tags: extension-cgi)
19:53
Do not provide failure diagnostics on the /ext page unless the user has Debug privilege. (check-in: 08b9b619 user: drh tags: extension-cgi)
18:34
Defer decoding POST parameters until after the webpage name is located. Do not do the decode if the webpage has the new "raw-content" property. Set that property on /ext so that is can relay the encoded content to sub-cgi. (check-in: e4849f58 user: drh tags: extension-cgi)
18:08
Add the ability for Debug users to trace sub-CGI responses by adding the fossil-ext-debug query parameter. (check-in: cc21a438 user: drh tags: extension-cgi)
17:40
Disable HTTP_ACCEPT_ENCODING for the extension CGI. But leave that setting unchanged for Fossil as it might be needed for the relay back to the client. (check-in: 54aeb1a8 user: drh tags: extension-cgi)
17:07
Add the ability to extend a Fossil server using CGI. This is a refactor of the prior sub-cgi branch. (check-in: ed2def5f user: drh tags: extension-cgi)
2019-07-24
10:54
Continuing work on the /aux page. Now working for static content. (Closed-Leaf check-in: 77a72fb9 user: drh tags: sub-cgi)
2019-07-23
23:25
Initial but incomplete work on an experimental /aux page that runs secondary CGI that has access to the Fossil user login credentials and similar information. This is an incremental check-in of work-in-progress. (check-in: 72f8e776 user: drh tags: sub-cgi)
19:17
Make sure an HTTP request always has at least a single "/" in the pathname. (check-in: 35d609a0 user: drh tags: trunk)
18:20
Fix over-length lines in the logic.c source file. No logical changes. (check-in: cd11f921 user: drh tags: trunk)
18:14
Fix a typo in an internal function name. "logic" should be "login". (check-in: c921545b user: drh tags: trunk)
16:16
Do not follow a redirect from HTTPS to HTTP. (check-in: c19f782e user: drh tags: trunk)
16:10
Add the test-httpmsg command. (check-in: 1ad56cee user: drh tags: trunk)
13:16
Use HTTP/1.1 for the sync protocol, not HTTP/1.0. (check-in: c51b61ff user: drh tags: trunk)
04:23
Use new functionality in "fossil whatis" to correct wiki test cases since /info hrefs are no longer included in the wiki pages. (check-in: ef40a0be user: andybradford tags: test-updates)
03:49
Enable "fossil whatis" to actually find a wiki page when given --type w. (check-in: 7627d4a7 user: andybradford tags: test-updates)
2019-07-22
19:06
Bail out of the alert_send() routine if the notification system is misconfigured with a blank email-self value. (check-in: 4c73b4af user: drh tags: trunk)
16:12
In the alert sending logic, if no "email-self" is specified, then substitute the bogus email address "nobody@invalid". (check-in: 488af363 user: drh tags: trunk)
2019-07-19
16:34
Update the server.wiki 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. (check-in: dc0a342d user: drh tags: trunk)
16:33
Tightened up the opening paragraph of "Linux vs SQLite" section of fossil-v-git. (check-in: 0297ae7f user: wyoung tags: trunk)
16:25
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)
16:14
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)
16:01
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)
15:39
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. (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)

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)
14:52
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)
02:37
Reworked several sections of the fossil-v-git.wiki 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)
15:05
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)
20:32
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)
12:12
Renamed named anchor for "Accepting Contributions" in fossil-v-git from "license" to "contrib". (check-in: 074b896e user: wyoung tags: bsd-vs-gpl)
12:11
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)
11:02
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)

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)
16:56
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)

16:33
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)
15:46
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)
15:41
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)

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)

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)

13:24
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 fossil-v-git.wiki document, as reported on the forum. "fossil all status" should be "fossil all changes". (check-in: 9b51c42a user: drh tags: trunk)

Update the built-in SQLite to the 3.29.0 release. (check-in: 8c9eeb01 user: drh tags: trunk)
16:22
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)

19:14
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.

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)
