50 most recent check-ins by user wyoung

14:59
Rewrote the login-groups doc, making it both more clear and more detailed. This started out as clarifying a confusion brought up on the forum, but experimentation kept bringing up new and interesting restrictions and interactions that I felt were worth documenting. ...

2022-04-11
09:33
Brought the "Fossil grep vs POSIX grep" doc up to date relative to the merged grep-enhancements branch. ... (check-in: caba4b01 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
2022-04-10
18:56
Added the "--page wcontent" bit to the new wiki versioning example in the glossary. ... (check-in: b05a07a9 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
18:53
Grammar tweaks to previous ... (check-in: ccd5cacc user: wyoung tags: trunk)
18:49
Added "Embedded Documentation" section to the glossary per larrybr's request in /chat. It's a Fossil-specific term of art. It also gives us a place to contrast with the wiki; that could live in the docs for the wiki or embedded docs instead, but the glossary is where newbies go to get oriented on terms, so the "but which should I use" question falls right out of the terminology. ...

08:34
Updated a reference to macOS 11 from the backup doc: the condition it warns against is still true as of macOS 12.3. ... (check-in: 1bb4147f user: wyoung tags: trunk)

Calling db_open() to determine if a given repository is valid rather than a hand-rolled sqlite3_open() call. This then allows us to call db_looks_like_a_repository() to determine if the DB is a valid repo rather than duplicate the checks it already has in another nearby context. This is part of the apndvfs vs normal-case stuff done in prior commits, consolidating the notion of "valid" to a single spot in the code. ... (check-in: 69145d9d user: wyoung tags: trunk)
20:35
Simplified an overly-clever test for a file size being an even multiple of 512 bytes. Compiler Explorer says GCC 11 generates the same code both ways, at least, and it isn't in a CPU-critical code path anyway. Also added a comment referring to this new, simplified code, to prevent a recurrence of the problem fixed by the prior commit. ... (check-in: c67d5401 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
19:23
Reverted a check for the repository size being an even multiple of 512 bytes as a test for validity. Introduced in an omnibus commit for obscure reasons, it causes some valid clone operations to fail, as originally reported on the forum. ... (check-in: 4a2d0e78 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
2022-01-16
18:42
The output of "fossil configuration --help" had two different ways -R was described, one wrong. The newer one was of a more consistent format with the rest of the help ([decd537016 | thus why it was added]) so removed the older one and reworked the newer one to be more accurate. ... (check-in: 6cb0fc25 user: wyoung tags: trunk)

04:58
Moved the GitHub forking stats down in the fossil-v-git doc to a spot where it fits better. Updated the stats, and tightened up the prose. ... (check-in: c0269e34 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
04:19
Fixed a Markdown-ism in a Fossil wiki doc. ... (check-in: ab48b9da user: wyoung tags: trunk)
04:19
Made the "scale" issue in fossil-v-git less of a false dichotomy. ... (check-in: 5171e591 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
2021-12-22
09:18
Added more reasons not to use Fossil as a whole-system configuration backup utility in the glossary point about not using Fossil to store files scattered hither-and-yon over a filesystem. ... (check-in: 79948097 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
09:14
A few clarifications to the new glossary. ... (check-in: 78aa4394 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
2021-12-12
16:18
The "Summary Line Convention In Commit Comments" section in gitusers.md now covers the related setting under Admin -> Timeline. ... (check-in: c33ffed3 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
15:41
Extracted the glossary to a new document from the old "why use Fossil" doc, expanded it considerably, converted it from Wiki to Markdown, and updated the links to point to its new location. ... (check-in: a58d952f user: wyoung tags: trunk)
2021-10-07
13:01
Fixed a copy/paste error in www/sync.wiki per an anonymous forum post. ... (check-in: 3f736de9 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
2021-09-21
16:42
Fixed a paren nesting bug that prevented multi-character hashtags from being processed. It would stop at the second character. ... (check-in: e211f1ab user: wyoung tags: markdown-tagrefs)
16:38
Added '@' and '#' prefixes in spans. Initial commit ate them. ... (check-in: 398cfa0b user: wyoung tags: markdown-tagrefs)
16:19
Initial implementation of "span data-foo" wrappers around @name and #tag references. Seems functional on a test-markdown-render basis, but the definitions of what counts as a reference and what to do with them still remains to be handled. ... (check-in: 31a607d3 user: wyoung tags: markdown-tagrefs)
09:47
Fixed a comment to match the code, as reported on the forum. ... (check-in: 898b8f20 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
06:22
Assorted small improvements to the gitusers doc ... (check-in: 7cd51fa3 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
2021-09-19
14:37
Restored "diff --command CMD" flag that got lost in the latest diff refactorings. (One-off method for supplying the diff-command setting.) ... (check-in: cae7036b user: wyoung tags: trunk)
03:55
Fixed a few minor errors in the new http-over-ssh.md doc and added a memorial to a fallen hero. ... (check-in: 9d4a1327 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
03:34
Put a space after all "###" used as inline headers in www/customgraph.md to make them behave the same if we follow the CommonMark spec and require at least one space or tab after the last #. All other www/*.md files already do this. ... (check-in: bc08b097 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
2021-09-18
01:37
Assorted small improvements to the new http-over-ssh.md doc. ... (check-in: d8f47075 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
00:51
Added the www/server/any/http-over-ssh.md doc, an elaboration of Andy Bradford's OpenSSH ForceCommand based solution for forcing access via ssh:// URLs to go through a wrapper script that rewrites the command, exchanging "test-http" for "http", causing the Fossil RBAC system to come into play in a secure fashion. Linking to it from the top-level "server/" index and from the #webonly section of the caps/ index where it cites this limitation. Reworked the latter section now that we have a documented alternative. ... (check-in: be8ed971 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
2021-09-17
21:48
Clarified the read/write access issue in the #webonly section of the main user capabilities doc. ... (check-in: 391bc369 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
02:32
Updated the JS doc's section about the hamburger menu to reflect the recent addition of this menu to other stock skins. ... (check-in: 36d84427 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
02:02
Converted all uses of the obsolete named anchor feature from HTML before 4.0 to use fragment identifiers instead. (www/* subtree only.)

Where possible, changed constructs like

<a name="foo"></a><h3>
to
<h3 id="foo">

Also fixed a few cases where the link target came after a header so the browser would scroll the header off the screen when visiting the targeted section.

Added a 50em pad at the bottom of one such edited doc to allow the intra-doc link targets to be useful since it's a short enough doc that on sufficiently tall browser windows, scrolling isn't possible, so using those anchors has no visible effect. ... (check-in: 93cee1f5 user: wyoung tags: trunk)

2021-09-09
16:19
Edit pass on the blockchain doc: mainly clarity improvements, but also some typo and grammar fixes. ... (check-in: c34ca629 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
2021-09-02
07:56
Half of [d700f5ff4f215c69 | the prior commit] was unnecessary. Backed it out. ... (check-in: 9a4e87a3 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
07:52
Added db_unprotect/pop wrappers around the "clone --ssh-command" handling to avoid a bogus "unauthorized change to protected setting" error, as reported on the forum. ... (check-in: d700f5ff user: wyoung tags: trunk)
2021-08-31
14:13
Removed the link to /setup_smtp from the main /admin page: the backing feature was removed several months ago. Addresses an anonymous forum post. ... (check-in: 7aaee6fc user: wyoung tags: trunk)
14:10
Markdown tweak in www/alerts.md to avoid semi-redundant constructs like "[MTA][mta]". ... (check-in: 897bd90b user: wyoung tags: trunk)
14:03
Fixed several "descendents" typos. (It's "descendants".) There's still one remaining in sqlite3.c, but of course fixing that here won't help. ... (check-in: 85f119dc user: wyoung tags: trunk)
13:44
Small grammar tweaks to previous ... (check-in: c2f0063f user: wyoung tags: trunk)

Further tweaks to §2.5.1 of the fossil-v-git doc: spelling and grammar fixes, updated references, clarifications... ... (check-in: c00b6a48 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
13:14
Updated the fossil-v-git doc to talk about "fossil patch" in addition to "fossil bundle". ... (check-in: e3e06d31 user: wyoung tags: trunk)

Fix for previous. :P ... (check-in: 3befe7aa user: wyoung tags: trunk)

URL fix addressing a report on the forum. ... (check-in: 0da45710 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
2021-08-11
18:56
Adjusted the optional cscope feature so it collects symbols only from the src subdir, primarily to get the bld/* stuff out of the way. ... (check-in: b6cc6f68 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
2021-08-02
10:09
Typo fix in previous ... (check-in: e3066ede user: wyoung tags: trunk)
08:49
Clarified the double-quoting and {} quoting rules for TH1 in the docs. ... (check-in: a1e41529 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
2021-07-23

Updated the caps/index.md doc to reflect the recent "sxy" change ... (check-in: 34de6214 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
19:48
Comment typo fix in previous ... (check-in: ec5efceb user: wyoung tags: trunk)
19:35
The default user capability string for the test-http command — used by ssh:// URLs despite the "test-" prefix! — is now "sxy" to grant all permissions as claimed in the docs. While this is objectively correct, it doesn't solve the actual problem I was chasing, being UV sync failure over SSH per a recent forum post. ... (check-in: 129e3958 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
2021-07-20
20:57
Updated the link to cURL's cacert.pem package from the "SSL" doc ... (check-in: af7bbdce user: wyoung tags: trunk)
2021-07-15

Updated the systemd service article to account for my experience following the instructions on a CentOS 8 box. (It was originally written for an older Debian type platform.) ... (check-in: 74670ab1 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
