Merged trunk changes in. Only needed to track my own rename of branch_of_rid() to branch_of_ckin_rid() ... (Leaf check-in: ea28708f user: wyoung tags: artifact-view-links)
07:15
Copied over documentation of 2 recently-added "fossil cgi" control file lines to the www/cgi.wiki doc (redirect and jsmode) and then reordered it all to match the order given in "fossil cgi --help" output to make it easier to maintain these parallel lists in the future. ... (check-in: 282402d8 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
06:47
Fixed "debug" -> "cgi-debug" in the built-in docs for "fossil cgi". ... (check-in: e3dbb7d7 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
2021-02-26
13:07
The new mainmenu element previously called "Setup" reverted a years-old change to use "Admin" for this menu because about half of the items on the /setup screen are also usable by people with only the Admin cap. This also changes the capexpr to include "a" for the same reason. ... (check-in: 7260ff21 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
13:01
Added a section to the customskin.md doc explaining where the main menu contents went and how to change them in the new "mainmenu" world. ... (check-in: da229107 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
07:05
Tightened up the new reason #5 for "why set up a server". ... (check-in: 50a0e024 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
06:51
Updated the macOS / OpenSSL 1.0 bits of the backup doc's encryption section to cover the latest situation under Big Sur. ... (check-in: 0e1cc786 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
06:23
Added a link to the backups doc from the "benefits of a server" doc, fixed a few more grammar problems, and fixed a few URLs in prior commits. ... (check-in: 4f9c6210 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
06:20
Grammar tweaks in point 2 of the "whyuseaserver.wiki" doc. ... (check-in: 05e79793 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
06:18
Noted the Fossil RBAC system as another reason you may want to set up a Fossil server. ... (check-in: a3a70a01 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
06:14
Added an answer to SQLite's "how to corrupt" document to the "Benefits of a Fossil Server" doc, since setting up a server does largely solve those problems. ... (check-in: f9cfadf1 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
2021-02-14
21:28
Brought graham's ui-local-diff branch up to date with respect to trunk. This is not a simple merge, because it had to accommodate several conflicting changes, so it needs to be re-checked for sanity before being merged down to trunk. Also, some of the changes I made simply reduce the size of the resulting diff relative to trunk and need to be reverted; these are primarily 2-line splits of "else/if" so the branch-specific change doesn't repeat the following "if" condition, which is now the "else if" condition. I think this sort of thing aids understanding of the diff, even though it breaks the style guidelines. ... (check-in: 0516f4d3 user: wyoung tags: ui-local-diff)
2021-02-11
20:46
Grammar fix in gitusers.md ... (check-in: c0e3bb0f user: wyoung tags: trunk)

Added "contact" to the list of sub-commands in "fossil user" short help output. (It was only described in the full help.) ... (check-in: 652e85cb user: wyoung tags: trunk)
2021-02-04
17:29
Changed a few doc references from "fossil diff -N" to use -v instead, its anointed alternative. ... (check-in: ad42dfee user: wyoung tags: trunk)
2021-01-28

2021-01-14
19:32
Updated doc references to Fossil 2.14 to be less tentative, now that it's imminent. ... (check-in: 9650c739 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
16:17
New www/co-vs-up.md doc, which should've been part of commit [a5ea7891]. (D'oh!) ... (check-in: 863fdca4 user: wyoung tags: trunk)

14:53
Extracted the "fossil up" vs "fossil co" discussion in gitusers.md to a separate document, since it's of broader interest than just in comparisons to Git. This freed me to expand the comparison. ... (check-in: a5ea7891 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
14:00
Clarified the intro to the gitusers doc. ... (check-in: 99117745 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
2021-01-06
20:10
Updated a few references to Git's "master" branch in the docs to track the addition of "fossil git export --mainbranch". ... (check-in: aca011c5 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
2020-12-22
12:30
Whitespace style fix ... (Closed-Leaf check-in: 358f7d80 user: wyoung tags: body-feature-class)
12:13
Removed the parameter from style_finish_page() since the resulting content div class is now redundant with respect to the body class. This potentially breaks CSS made against old class names that a prior commit on this branch changed, but such skins would be made against an unreleased version of Fossil, it's unlikely many are using that first version of the feature anyway, and most of the class names did *not* change unless you were targeting a "div" instead of "body" or just a generic class name. None of the shipping skins are affected. ... (check-in: 0e83ca88 user: wyoung tags: body-feature-class)
11:59
Documented the use of $current_page in hand-rolled "body" tags in the customskin doc. ... (check-in: 18642176 user: wyoung tags: body-feature-class)
11:58
Calling the new style_set_current_feature() function to override the new TH1 variable $current_feature for Fossil UI pages where the page name isn't what we want used as the "body" CSS class. For the most part, this matches the value currently being passed to style_finish_page(), but a few have changed with the benefit of hindsight. Not all calls to style_finish_page() have a corresponding call to the new function since the default value for $current_page now suffices. ... (check-in: 8ac0830b user: wyoung tags: body-feature-class)
11:56
Using the new $current_feature variable in the Bootstrap skin's Header, it being the only stock skin to still provide its own <body>. Without this change, the prior commit won't take effect when using Bootstrap. ... (check-in: 556923fa user: wyoung tags: body-feature-class)
11:55
Created a new TH1 variable $current_feature set by default from the page URL's first component, but which may be overridden by code that knows a better feature name to use for that page. This is then used as the page's "body" class, making this the start of a replacement for the "content div" based feature class stuff done on branch default-css-cleanups. This is a better way to do it because it lets us target things outside the content div, such as the nav bar, the skin header, the skin footer, etc. ... (check-in: c671fc5d user: wyoung tags: body-feature-class)
10:31
Comment fix to track a code change made in commit [3d6444fc]. ... (check-in: e6e8ea8f user: wyoung tags: trunk)
09:36
Moved the "artifact" vs "artefact" point in the JSON API doc intro into a new section within the contribution doc. ... (check-in: e50d2707 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
09:22
Removed the "Multiple logins per user" caveat from the JSON API intro doc: that restriction was due to the IP address in the cookie, which is now long-removed. ... (check-in: 40715d84 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
09:21
Folded info about binary data, 64-bit ints, and timestamp values from a recent forum sub-thread into the JSON API intro doc. ... (check-in: 0f20b537 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
08:45
Assorted improvements to the "Contributing to Fossil" doc. The most substantial is replacement of references to the old mailing list with references to the forum. Added more info about patches and bundles, etc. ... (check-in: 34205ea4 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
2020-12-20
05:08
Clarified the "fossil help remote" output. ... (check-in: 6d7b5c4a user: wyoung tags: trunk)
2020-12-17
23:58
Moved the -lpthread for --static builds from the end of EXTRA_LDFLAGS to the end of LIBS, since the latter ends up at the end of "LIB" in the Makefile. In other words, the prior formulation put -lpthread in the *middle* of the LIB line, not at the end as intended. ... (check-in: 08ad0f52 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
2020-12-16
20:14
Comment improvements to [6f9d265234 | the recent change] in auto.def. ... (check-in: 53caec95 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
2020-12-13
05:32
Factored the iteration count out of the encrypted backup solution in backup.md, so it isn't repeated between the backup and restore cases. ... (check-in: fc300d5a user: wyoung tags: trunk)
2020-12-10
22:49
Merged the new commit splitting material in gitusers.md into the "There Is No Staging Area" section, which covers similar things. Now referring to this new version from the old location under the rebase topic. ... (check-in: 6369d7b3 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
22:15
Added recommendation for Patchouli in the gitusers doc, as an alternative to git rebase -i. ... (check-in: 0564a6a6 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
21:33
Reworked section 5.0 of the rebaseharm doc to be less controversial. Charged words are quotes from the Git docs, not words we sling at it, etc. This also more clearly separates the "merge alternative" aspects of rebase from the history-mutating aspects. ... (check-in: 1a4b8e58 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
20:59
Recommending adding -N to "fossil diff" commands when piping thru diffstat in the gitusers.md doc. ... (check-in: a4e84fb5 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
20:55
Added info about --numstat to the "Diff Statistics" section of the gitusers doc. ... (check-in: 11e3366c user: wyoung tags: trunk)
20:47
Edit pass for clarity on the ckout-workflows doc ... (check-in: ea594514 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
20:20
Using the less jargony term "crawling" instead of "grovel" in the Fossil v Git article. ... (check-in: 3f6f7dea user: wyoung tags: trunk)
20:19
Replaced a few remaining "block chain" references with "Merkle tree" in the Fossil v Git article. ... (check-in: e6730652 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
2020-12-09
23:01
Extended prior change to cover the "Added" and "Deleted" cases. ... (check-in: f6ab24fd user: wyoung tags: trunk)
22:58
Added a missing trailing " in "Changes to wiki page FOO" entries in the timeline. ... (check-in: 62c030e0 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
2020-12-04
19:22
Comment fix to go with previous UB NULL fix. ... (check-in: 4d88ef4f user: wyoung tags: trunk)
18:35
The variadic function builtin_fossil_js_bundle_or() was using 0 as a sentinel to detect end-of-list, but that isn't equivalent to NULL in a list of pointed-to objects in all C compilers, on all systems. Using a GCC/Clang function attribute to force a warning when 0 is passed instead of NULL, then fixed all resulting warnings. This fixes the SEGV reported in forum post 5feca9c36a on Mac OS X 10.11 with Clang from Xcode 7. Later versions of Clang on macOS don't have this problem, but it's still UB, so fixing it may solve some pain for us later on. ... (check-in: 815b4fc4 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
2020-12-03
12:12
Grammar fix ... (check-in: b13c82f0 user: wyoung tags: trunk)

Clarified the intro to the new fail2ban section of the nginx-on-Debian doc. ... (check-in: 162b7abb user: wyoung tags: trunk)
18:51
Added section to the nginx-on-Debian server guide to cover client_max_body_size with `fossil uv sync`. ... (check-in: bd8d4376 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
2020-11-29
21:03

2020-11-22
14:37
Backed out the "ul" left margin on the index page's float-right div. ... (check-in: 20b8a0ea user: wyoung tags: modern-skin-markup-fixes)
14:05
First in a potential series of many changes to doc markup in this repo (especially to www/*) to work better with the Inskinerator project's Modern override. This one changes an explicit HTML table in www/rebaseharm.md to a Markdown table so our CSS can take full effect. ... (check-in: facb9880 user: wyoung tags: modern-skin-markup-fixes)
06:54
Added named anchors in the /fileedit doc page. ... (check-in: 66851cd6 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
2020-11-18
08:01
Moved the section on backups in the Email Alerts doc into the new backup doc, and expanded on the coverage of config backups there, since this splits the prior section. ... (check-in: 2b1c5bc8 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
2020-11-16
02:48
Noted the fact that Fossil 2.9+ remembers the HTTPS URI in sync when accessed via an HTTP to HTTPS redirect. ... (check-in: 6b472ae1 user: wyoung tags: trunk)

02:05
Moved the www/tls-nginx.md doc contents into its companion doc www/server/debian/nginx.md and updated it for Ubuntu 20.04 LTS and Snap-based Certbot. ... (check-in: 0e63df14 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
00:41
Failed login attempts via /login now return HTTP status code 401 (Unauthorized), not 200. This has no user-visible effect in the returned page, but it allows fail2ban style log scanning. ... (check-in: 39d7eb0e user: wyoung tags: trunk)
2020-11-12
22:42

2020-11-05
23:49
The CSS rule cleanups in [064c677a70] were mistargeting their elements now that their selector's parent piece is not their immediate parent. ... (check-in: a46b4ceb user: wyoung tags: default-css-cleanups)
23:46
Ditto forumHier: unused! ... (check-in: 2de7dbbf user: wyoung tags: default-css-cleanups)

23:41
Using the new "forum" page type to simplify repetitive CSS rules. ... (check-in: 064c677a user: wyoung tags: default-css-cleanups)
23:15
Added a parameter to style_footer() and renamed it to match its actual function (style_body_and_footer()) so we can add a CSS class to each page that indicates which major Fossil feature served the page, so we can have module-specific CSS. ... (check-in: ef5424b6 user: wyoung tags: default-css-cleanups)
22:34
Moved a comment down in src/style.c and removed a part of it that seems to refer to inline CSS that's since moved to style.css. ... (check-in: a040a5d2 user: wyoung tags: default-css-cleanups)
22:32
Disentangled an incorrect intermingling of the "adunit" feature and the "content" div the begins the body area of each page. ... (check-in: e7fe61c1 user: wyoung tags: default-css-cleanups)
22:16
Assorted cleanups in skins/default/css.txt: reordered styles so like elements are grouped together, added separator comments to try and prevent this drift from happening again, and made the spacing consistent with the www/style.wiki rules. The goal is to make it easier to find rules when doing custom skin edits. ... (check-in: b8b15a36 user: wyoung tags: default-css-cleanups)
18:10
Increased the blank space at the end of checkin_names.wiki so the last two sections can be distinguished when targetted by HTML fragment identifiers. ... (check-in: d2a59b03 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
03:08
Another attempt at addressing forum critiques about the gitusers doc's Case Study 1. Also had to update the example date we're searching for again, so I addeed a paragraph explaining why the example might break again. ... (check-in: 278a2b74 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
02:10
Reworked sections 2.7 and 2.8 in fossil-v-git to be clearer about history rewriting: commit + autosync vs. commit + push, rebase + drop vs. shunning, etc. ... (check-in: 18fc6971 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
2020-11-04
15:45
Flipped the examples in Case Study 1 in gitusers.md around so we approach the problem the same way the SO answer did. Also changed the target date, since on my local Git clone, the prior date is now giving me a non-merge commit for some reason. Rather than try to explain the discrepancy, I've just picked a different example. ... (check-in: 8f96db71 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
14:25
More gitusers.md doc improvements: promoted the "detached HEAD state" paragraph in Case Study 1 to a new section; clarified "fossil update" vs "fossil checkout" in relation to "git checkout"; applied forum feedback on Case Study 1. ... (check-in: 7e03f7b4 user: wyoung tags: trunk)

05:20
Moved the "What Changed?" section of gitusers.md up into the "Log" section since "git whatchanged" is approximately the same as "git log --raw", so they should be covered near each other. Then expanded the Log section's discussion of symbolic checkin names into a new sub-section, adding more info on cryptic Git revision names. ... (check-in: f378f5dc user: wyoung tags: trunk)
04:17
Better explanation of why Fossil is faster than Git in "Log" section of gitusers doc, so it isn't dismissed as puffery. ... (check-in: b2c032ea user: wyoung tags: trunk)

00:34
Added the "Git Worktrees" section to the gitusers doc, which acts as a complement to the "multiple check-out directories" section of the new ckout-workflow.md doc. It gives us a place to talk about git-worktree and git clone --separate-git-dir. ... (check-in: 31f8a835 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
2020-11-01
23:59
Moved the "Checkout Workflows" section of the gitusers doc up so we can shorten the section intro, and added brief comparisons between Fossil and Git specifically here, since the new ckout-workflows doc glosses those points now. ... (check-in: f2c5ab91 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
23:45
Updated the gitusers.md doc title in the index. ... (check-in: 13f8eb09 user: wyoung tags: trunk)

Minor tweaks to the gitusers doc to track the prior commit. ... (check-in: aa29ce14 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
23:35
Extracted the checkout workflows section of the gitusers.md doc to a new www/ckout-workflows.md doc, which talks about Git only as a common comparison. Linking to it from the gitusers.md doc, which now only talks about the Git-specific bits we had in that section. ... (check-in: b6b1b705 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
23:09
Applied a variant of drh's fix to the label spacing in the "museum" directory tree diagram in the gitusers doc. ... (check-in: 54001a4e user: wyoung tags: trunk)

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. ...

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)

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.

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)

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.
