Hello ! 

My question on the wiki
( )  is still
unanswered, so I try it here :

Is there a way to make  arch automatically update some keywords in the
source when updating/committing, like CVS does with $Log$ and $Id$ for
example ? 

The  $Log$ keyword  is  not so  important,  because you  can use  "lta
changelog"  for that,  and you  can  suppose that  people needing  the
changelog  have access to  the archive.  But the  $Id$ is  something I
really like  : When you send a  single file, or a  project without the
{arch} directory,  then you like to  have its version  included in the
file  itself. Sometimes even  this can  be included  in the  output of
"program --version" like tla does.

Thanks for your answers,
