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. Leaf 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
15:59
Rewrote the "Trust over hierarchy" point in fossil-v-git for clarity. check-in: d178c782 user: wyoung tags: trunk
15:53
Removed a repeated word in fossil-v-git check-in: b798e89a user: wyoung tags: trunk
15:52
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
2019-07-18
22:45
Improved documentation of the --https option on "fossil server". check-in: 3c602dd7 user: drh tags: trunk
17:45
In the hierarchical forum display, make sure that the edited post number is displayed, not the original post number. check-in: 776ce9e6 user: drh tags: trunk
2019-07-17
22:26
Give sequential numbers to all display posts in the forum, and reference other forum posts in a thread by the sequence number. check-in: 5a7267d9 user: drh tags: trunk
21:23
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
2019-07-16
20:02
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
15:44
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
15:42
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
14:58
Missing db_end_transaction(0) check-in: b0db865f user: jan.nijtmans tags: trunk
2019-07-14
21:24
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
12:28
Fixed some grammar errors in fossil-v-git's new "Accepting Contributions" material. check-in: 34d758bf user: wyoung tags: bsd-vs-gpl
12:25
Small tweak to prev check-in: d1c61803 user: wyoung tags: bsd-vs-gpl
12:24
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
11:37
Another bit of prose polishing in fossil-v-git check-in: fcdefd97 user: wyoung tags: bsd-vs-gpl
11:28
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
04:46
When removing a directory on Windows, make sure it is a real directory (i.e. not a junction, symbolic link, etc). check-in: 9bb25a28 user: mistachkin tags: trunk
2019-07-13
19:31
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
18:03
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
14:30
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
13:05
Version 2.9 check-in: 0fd79a3e user: drh tags: trunk, release, version-2.9
12:35
Fix a typo in a check-in race warning message. check-in: 66f06fe2 user: drh tags: trunk
2019-07-12
16:59
Do not invoke db_lget() in the sync protocol if the local checkout database is unavailable (such as when running "fossil all sync"). check-in: 0dba0f4b user: drh tags: trunk
16:43
Typo fix check-in: bd0b86e9 user: wyoung tags: bsd-vs-gpl
16:40
Added "and use" to fossil-v-git: the license has effects that extend beyond design and implementation. check-in: 2cc9036e user: wyoung tags: bsd-vs-gpl
16:39
Prose tightening tweak check-in: d2a77c30 user: wyoung tags: bsd-vs-gpl
16:38
Reduced repeition of the "deisgn and implementation" bits of "Fossil vs Git" in the new "GPL vs BSD" material. check-in: 4f293ddf user: wyoung tags: bsd-vs-gpl
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
15:29
Distilled the points about "GPL + CLA = commrecial interests" to only the bits essential to the "Fossil vs Git" argument. check-in: ba1fa73b user: wyoung tags: bsd-vs-gpl
14:53
Applied rewording suggested in https://fossil-scm.org/forum/forumpost/1af94ddea9 check-in: 840f2b39 user: wyoung tags: bsd-vs-gpl
14:51
Toned down the "corporate overlord" stuff in the "Fossil vs Git" doc. check-in: 13392797 user: wyoung tags: bsd-vs-gpl
14:43
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
14:15
Clarified the consequences of a CLA on Fossil and on FOSS projects in general in the "Fossil vs Git" doc. check-in: fffa6769 user: wyoung tags: bsd-vs-gpl
14:08
Add documentation on the "pragma ci-unlock" message in the sync protocol. check-in: 1eefb8db user: drh tags: trunk
13:58
Clarity tweak to the "why CLA + BSD" justification in the "Fossil vs Git" doc. check-in: 633830fe user: wyoung tags: bsd-vs-gpl
13:58
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
