svn and cvs about default commit log ...
By bloggerkedar on Apr 05, 2009
svn is superior to cvs (on which the former is based) in a number of ways, I believe. I haven't bitten by the non-atomic checkins of cvs etc. but I believe that svn is better than cvs.
But I thought there is one aspect (maybe minor) when it comes to the commit logs. For example, with cvs this is what I see in the editor session when I am checking in:
CVS: Committing in . CVS: CVS: Modified Files: CVS: Tag: My_Test_Branch CVS: Foo.java Bar.java
With svn, I see:
1 2 --This line, and those below, will be ignored-- 3 4 M Foo.java Bar.javaThus, there is no indication of the branch or the tag name! It's not immediately evident where I am checking in (I know there are ways to ensure it, but ...).
Why would they regress on this default behavior?
