Hi, vc-arch.el showed up in emacs; I'm very glad to finally be able to
do `C-x v =' on arch files (my number one wish before)!
A few little buglets I noticed:
(1) If you visit a _new_ file in an arch-controlled directory, it
File NAME was lost; check out from version control? (yes or no)
Which of course is completely wrong.
(2) Commit uses -L with the contents of the log buffer, which seems
like the wrong thing (remember, -L uses the given text to fill in
_both_ the Summary: and the log body -- and a log-edit buffer
usually contains newlines...).
I think ideally, it would pre-fill-in the log-edit buffer with a
skeleton arch log (e.g. just an empty Summary: line and a
header-end empty line), and pass it to commit using the -l option.
(3) The _first_ time you use `C-x v =' on any given file, it generates
a *vc-diff* buffer containing _two_ copies of the diff! Subsequent
invocations yield only the proper one copy.
p.s. Like many emacs & arch users probably did, I made a half-hearted
attempt at vc support when I first started using arch, but the
impedance mismatch between arch and vc.el's model of revision
control caused severe head pains... :-]
