100 most recent check-ins

2020-10-29
19:18
Fixed a use of "above" in a document to refer to text that was later moved to another document entirely. We now link to that doc instead. (Leaf check-in: 6a6fd6b9 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
19:07
Reworked the "Clones and Backups" section of www/caps/admin-v-setup.md now that we have www/backup.md. (check-in: dd65d143 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
16:30
Requires SQLite version 3.34.0 or later, due to the recursive CTE enhancement needed by /finfo. (check-in: 8813ae91 user: drh tags: trunk)
13:42
Minor fix to error handling in pikchr.c. (check-in: 5febff25 user: drh tags: trunk)
02:06
Update to the latest pikchr.c that fixes issues with the "close" attribute. (check-in: c9bc2b4a user: drh tags: trunk)
2020-10-28
16:13
When deleting a subscription, also provide the opportunity to delete the corresponding user. When deleting a user, always also delete subscriptions associated with that user. (check-in: b6b5a7dc user: drh tags: trunk)
2020-10-27
08:47
Add section "Naming of Files, Checkins, and Branches" (check-in: 590a8fca user: danshearer tags: trunk)
08:04
Correct typo; X swapped with Y (check-in: 986bde2b user: danshearer tags: trunk)
2020-10-26
19:49
Merge enhancements to the quickstart.wiki documentation page onto trunk. (check-in: f2abc2b0 user: drh tags: trunk)
16:44
Minor html emphasis fix (Closed-Leaf check-in: 2c9ccd77 user: danshearer tags: quickstart)
16:35
Minor mods, and use for command output (check-in: cfc68d13 user: danshearer tags: quickstart)
15:56
Add examples and expand on the workflow (check-in: 3e44368b user: danshearer tags: quickstart)
06:46
Added zsh fossil autocompletion, as discussed in https://fossil-scm.org/forum/forumpost/47a180c815. (check-in: e299531d user: stephan tags: trunk)
2020-10-22
17:35
Assorted minor fixes and tweaks to the check-in names doc (check-in: 68a78b89 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
2020-10-20
23:40
Fix a harmless compiler warning in the previous check-in. (check-in: 6c2b5baf user: drh tags: trunk)
23:37
The /file page for a file that is not part of the latest checkin tries to substitute the most recent checking that added the file. (check-in: 5cf5ad84 user: drh tags: trunk)
10:08
Small tweaks to the CAP Theorem doc (check-in: 67a4c1d3 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
00:20
For the graph drawing routines, make the graph row identifier a 64-bit integer type to avoid the possibility of integer overflow in /finfo where the row ids are a composite of the blob.rid and filename.fnid and hence might become large for repositories with many files and many check-ins. (check-in: ab71d95a user: drh tags: trunk)
2020-10-19
20:52
Update the built-in SQLite to fix a bug introduced by the previous update. (check-in: 0fac549b user: drh tags: trunk)
20:09
Do a better job of showing when a file is added, deleted, or renamed in the /finfo page. (check-in: a0bca481 user: drh tags: trunk)
18:24
Improvements to /finfo: Show all file rename events. The "rid" for each timeline entry must be a combination of the file-id "fid" and the filename-id "fnid" since either one of those two might change which should result in a new entry on the timeline. (check-in: 8c598d72 user: drh tags: trunk)
14:37
Use the new multi-recursive-term capability of CTEs in SQLite to fix the /finfo clade calculation, and to make /finfo run about 5x faster. (check-in: 47bfea07 user: drh tags: trunk)
13:25
Update the built-in SQLite to the latest 3.34.0 alpha that includes the ability to have multiple recursive terms in a recursive CTE. That new capability is expected to be helpful in improving the /finfo page. (check-in: 5328f821 user: drh tags: trunk)
2020-10-18
18:38
Fix harmless compiler warnings. Update the custom MinGW makefile. Make feature reporting consistent for 'markdown', which is now always enabled. (check-in: 750879ea user: mistachkin tags: trunk)
2020-10-17
18:47
Use the correct filename in hyperlinks in the new /finfo page. (check-in: 0af47722 user: drh tags: trunk)
14:57
Enhancements to the /finfo page so that it follows the file across name changes if the ci=HASH query parameter is used. (check-in: b54d9396 user: drh tags: trunk)
12:34
On the /finfo page, change the check-in range query parameters from ci= and orig= into from= and to=. This gets the ci= query parameter out of the way so that it can be reused. (check-in: 299800b2 user: drh tags: trunk)
2020-10-15
14:59
Expand the allowed date/time format for the "a=" and "b=" query parameters to the /finfo page, so that it is compatible with /timeline. (check-in: 04ef2df6 user: drh tags: trunk)
11:23
Fix typo in pikchr.md (check-in: 9bdc9ca4 user: drh tags: trunk)
2020-10-14
17:47
For the "fossil all" command, make --dont-stop the default. There is a new option --stop-on-error that sets the legacy behavior. Pause for 1/3rd of a second after any subprocess failure so that if the failures is due to SIGINT, a second SIGINT can have time to arrive before continuing. (check-in: bcd5addd user: drh tags: trunk)
12:15
Take positive cherrypick merges into account when computing the MLINK table for a check-in. (check-in: e0d8f733 user: drh tags: trunk)
2020-10-13
20:47
Fix the --baseurl option on "fossil server" so that it automatically strips off trailing / characters. (check-in: 9e816f0a user: drh tags: trunk)
13:50
Enhance the whatis command to show a description of the origin of phantoms. (check-in: d2502768 user: drh tags: trunk)
13:26
Improved identification of the source of phantoms when they are named in a cluster but nowhere else. (check-in: cd624d4f user: drh tags: trunk)
12:19
Update the built-in SQLite to the latest 3.34.0 alpha. (check-in: 2ec0dc29 user: drh tags: trunk)
08:35
Typo fix (check-in: 9c67804a user: wyoung tags: trunk)
08:32
Assorted minor tweaks to the new backup.md doc (check-in: fc2c1244 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
00:40
Soften the introduction to the "backup.md" documentation page, so that beginners do not get the impression that backups are critical for successful Fossil deployments. (check-in: c14a1f60 user: drh tags: trunk)
2020-10-12
19:56
More clarifications to cryptocurrencies vs the Fossil "blockchain". (check-in: 26005b81 user: tangent tags: trunk)
19:45
Several clarity improvements to the discussion of cryptocurrencies in blockchain.md. (check-in: 70523a71 user: tangent tags: trunk)
13:39
New document: pikchr.md (check-in: a92365d7 user: drh tags: trunk)
2020-10-11
06:51
Greatly expanded the simple definition of "blockchain" in the eponymous doc to include more details of common blockchain implementations to draw clearer parallels. This causes our conclusion to flip around from the prior version of this doc, but it's worth keeping the doc because it serves to compare and contrast Fossil to other systems. (check-in: 1ddb4008 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
01:19
Understand files ending in ".pikchr" to be Pikchr source text and render them appropriately. (check-in: e32214a4 user: drh tags: trunk)
2020-10-10
20:33
New pikchr.c that fixes the top and bottom margin that was lost in the previous check-in. (check-in: 0ec09ea8 user: drh tags: trunk)
20:24
Update pikchr.c with enhancements in text layout when using "big" or "small". (check-in: b80bd64b user: drh tags: trunk)
16:34
Add a catch-all bullet for other miscellaneous changes to the change list for 2.13. (check-in: 40f0d5ab user: drh tags: trunk)
16:32
Improved interwiki link documentation. Enhance the /intermap page so that it shows the current intermap (read-only) to non-setup users, rather than completely exluding such users. (check-in: baeab56e user: drh tags: trunk)
15:52
Relax constraints on the SQL used to set up the ticket schema slightly: (1) Allow creating views whose names begin with "ticket" or "fx_". (2) Allow creating tables whose names begin with "fx_". (3) Allow data changes to tables whose names begin with "fx_". (check-in: 93c45cd4 user: drh tags: trunk)
12:05
Renamed fossil.page.wikiedit-wysiwyg-legacy.js to fossil.wikiedit-wysiwyg.js so that the excessively long name doesn't cause /dir to have, at most, 2 columns. Removed some dead code and added a tiny bit of docs. Updated changelog per forum request. (check-in: a759842a user: stephan tags: trunk)
00:01
Fix the fossil_stat() routine (broken by check-in [39a5df1fde741d08]) so that it responds correctly when the second argument is SymFILE. This is a fix for the problem described in Forum post 251ffc0584 (check-in: 4d445ead user: drh tags: trunk)
2020-10-09
21:09
Replace the two GIF images in the www/concepts.wiki document with Pikchrs. (check-in: bd9bf248 user: drh tags: trunk)
2020-10-08
14:49
Always consume the --nocgi command-line option even if it is not used. (check-in: 8594e7a6 user: drh tags: trunk)
08:48
Drew better analogies between Bitcoin's answer to the 51% attack and to GitHub in the new Anonymity section of the blockchain doc to show that Fossil doesn't even try to provide the sorts of behavior that allow fully anonymous contribution to a blockchain. (Closed-Leaf check-in: 87b1385d user: wyoung tags: fossil-as-blockchain)
08:10
Added a para to the prior section. (check-in: 69e0ea54 user: wyoung tags: fossil-as-blockchain)
08:00
Added the "Anonymity" section to the new blockchain doc. (check-in: b357dc2b user: wyoung tags: fossil-as-blockchain)
07:04
Small clarity fix in the new CAP theorem doc (check-in: 8a9facbb user: wyoung tags: trunk)
06:42
All but rewrote the Cryptocurrency section of the new blockchain.md doc to clarify the sorts of frauds each system has to prevent so that we can draw clearer analogies. (check-in: 154d848d user: wyoung tags: fossil-as-blockchain)
04:11
Merged trunk changes in (check-in: 95203913 user: wyoung tags: fossil-as-blockchain)
04:11
Added fragment identifiers to the new CAP theorem doc. (check-in: 991b0899 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
2020-10-07
07:07
Removed an extraneous space from pikchrshow DOM output. pikchr command error output now prepends a newline to pikchr-level errors to keep line number comment alignment intact for the first line. (check-in: c3b2671f user: stephan tags: trunk)
06:59
pikchr_process() now makes use of the as-yet-not-public PIKCHR_PLAINTEXT_ERRORS flag to maintain control of the error output DOM structure. (check-in: ce304629 user: stephan tags: trunk)
05:39
Increase maximum token size in Pikchr to 50000 bytes. Important for macros. (check-in: da1ff5c2 user: drh tags: trunk)
00:29
Removed several weak arguments from the blockchain.md doc and added a lot more info about cryptocurrencies to show the differences between them and Fossil. Tweaked much of the preexisting material. (check-in: 3d55f443 user: wyoung tags: fossil-as-blockchain)
2020-10-05
18:15
Recast the blockchain.md doc as "Is Fossil a Blockchain?" (answer: mostly no) and updated all references to it to either remove the term, use "repository" instead where that's sufficiently clear, or to say either "Merkle tree" or "hash tree" instead where we need to distinguish the hash tree itself from the rest of the repo DB file's contents. This depends on the prior CAP theorem doc, since part of the argument for Fossil not being a blockchain gets us down into those weeds.

EDIT: Moving it to a branch because we're still arguing the point on the forum. (check-in: 855578b6 user: wyoung tags: fossil-as-blockchain)

17:02
Added a new doc, "Fossil and the CAP Theorem." It distills some good info from the forum, so we can just point at it instead of recapitulating it. But it's being checked in now because an upcoming commit will refer to it. (check-in: 3ddd56d0 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
16:37
Added "Restoring From An Encrypted Backup" section to the new backup.md doc. (check-in: e0a38eb3 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
14:12
Fixed another dangling Markdown link (check-in: e5ad07dc user: wyoung tags: trunk)
14:10
URL fix (check-in: 56b13f2a user: wyoung tags: trunk)
13:59
Fixed the scp command in the new backup.md doc (check-in: e3e4bec3 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
13:55
Another typo fix in the backup.md doc (check-in: eb34dd52 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
13:45
Typo fix (check-in: 21a63c8c user: wyoung tags: trunk)
13:16
Assorted tweaks to the new material in the gitusers doc. (check-in: 09acf696 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
12:37
Added the "Autosync is Intransitive" section to the new backup doc. (check-in: 1299d677 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
12:24
A few small refinements to the new backup doc. (check-in: ea57a2f7 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
12:08
Greatly expanded the "Autosync" section of the gitusers doc. Among other things, it now references the new backup.md doc. (check-in: 3ddc1d94 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
12:07
Added info about private branches to the new backup.md doc. (check-in: 78c0c55a user: wyoung tags: trunk)
11:54
Added a new doc, "Backing Up a Remote Fossil Repository". (check-in: 5c2ef2a2 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
11:25
Change instances of %s(g.zTop) into %R. (check-in: a40e8a09 user: drh tags: trunk)
10:18
Greatly expanded the "Repositories And Checkouts Are Distinct" section of the gitusers.md doc. (check-in: 386fc49e user: wyoung tags: trunk)
10:13
uv ls/list doc patch from https://fossil-scm.org/forum/forumpost/cdc43ffe60. (check-in: ecac7c4e user: stephan tags: trunk)
2020-10-04
14:35
Exchanged most uses of %s(g.zTop) and such in the code with use of %R in Fossil's special printf() type functions. (The branch is named after just one of several of these, mprintf(), being one of the shortest names.) At the least, this is shorter, simpler code, but there is also some hope that it may fix some doubled slash problems someone is having on the forum. (https://www.fossil-scm.org/forum/forumpost/1ea72176e0) (Leaf check-in: 2907721a user: wyoung tags: prefer-mprintf-r)
2020-10-03
02:06
Clarity tweaks to the new "multiple origins" scenario in the gitusers doc. (check-in: 77bb3e4c user: wyoung tags: trunk)
01:53
Small tweaks to previous. (check-in: e67c413d user: wyoung tags: trunk)
01:38
Added a new "multiple origin servers" section to the gitusers doc to replace the obsolete one just removed. This not only shows off Fossil's new "fossil remote add" feature set, it acts as a sort of white paper comparing Git to Fossil in a common use case scenario. (check-in: e3cef726 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
01:35
Expanded on several points in the gitusers doc, added links to other docs, added named anchors to all of the top-level sections, and removed the obsolete section on "no multiple remotes" now that we have the "fossil remote add" feature. (check-in: 2306f816 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
2020-10-02
22:11
Clarified and expanded the "create branches at point of need" section of the gitusers.md doc. (check-in: 331dc0d3 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
21:59
Reflected the GitHub change of "master" to "main" into our gitusers.md doc. (check-in: b0ee3d5d user: wyoung tags: trunk)
20:28
Changed the name of docs at the end of the quickstart doc to match their actual titles. (check-in: 3449d9ce user: wyoung tags: trunk)
20:25
Converted obsolete anchors in the quickstart doc to fragment identifiers on the headers, and added fragment IDs to all of the h2 level headers that lacked one. (check-in: 8da7b15e user: wyoung tags: trunk)
14:23
Removed a bit of unnecessary copy/paste backwards compatibility from [15001dd013]. (check-in: aae387d9 user: stephan tags: trunk)
09:38
Added --hash flag to ls -v, for consistency with status/changes, per https://fossil-scm.org/forum/forumpost/896de8f963. (check-in: 15001dd0 user: stephan tags: trunk)
2020-10-01
21:21
Clarity pass on the rebaseharm doc following the recent Hacker News thread, to address confusions that came up there. (check-in: 068e26af user: wyoung tags: trunk)
20:59
Removed point 4.0 from the rebaseharm doc: it said that rebase is a problem because Git makes the change immediately to the blockchain, but that's a problem with Git in general, due to its commit-then-push model, not a problem with rebase in particular. If Fossil had a rebase feature, there is no good reason to believe we would do this as well. Therefore, this point is a distraction from the main argument. Besides, we already cover it as fossil-v-git.wiki#testing. (check-in: 6e0dba25 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
20:37
The rebaseharm.md doc referred to rebase04.svg *twice*, so while all SVGs associated with the doc were replaced, the second became a broken link when the SVG files were removed. Simply duplicating the code with comments to try to stave off version drift for now. (check-in: a61ac66b user: wyoung tags: trunk)
18:34
Improvements to the "fossil import" command so that it can now (hopefully) interpret "breezy" files. (check-in: d82534b3 user: drh tags: trunk)
18:33
Fix an issue with the "R" (rename)" and "C" (copy) commands when interpreting git-fast-export files. (Closed-Leaf check-in: 8e5b0103 user: drh tags: breezy-fast-import)
16:01
Latest pikchr.c fixes an issue with "same" and lines that have a "to" attribute. (check-in: 42caafaf user: drh tags: trunk)
12:46
Fix an issue with the logic that prevents Fossil control artifacts from being imported as regular files. Probably unrelated to the breezy changes. Came up during testing. (check-in: 92ab2474 user: drh tags: breezy-fast-import)
12:13
An attempt to enhance the git-fast-export reader so that it can handle breezy-generated output files. (check-in: ddcd35d6 user: drh tags: breezy-fast-import)
2020-09-30
21:11
Update the built-in SQLite to the latest 3.33 alpha for testing. (check-in: 02c6b07e user: drh tags: trunk)
