Hi All,
I've been working on building a wrapper over CVS to create a Source Control tool that will be used by my oraganisation. One among the requirements is the ability to branch too often. i.e, Every time a developer works on a problem, she'll be doing to in her own private branch. Once she is pretty sure that her code works, she'll merge it to the parent branch. This would create a huge number of branches off branches. This means that the revision numbers for such files can get long. And cvs log could show some cluttered revision numbers.
I have 2 questions,
1. Can we hide such a long revision numbers to something short?
2. One of other requirement of our tool is the ability for an automatic patch building system to pull out any revision of a file. With such arbitrary branches created it would be difficult to select one particulaer revision. Is there any way with which we can specify say, i need 3rd revision from the branch 'ui_change' when the file has 10 revisions on the branch 'ui_change'.
Please help.
