Enhancements to the CVS scmtool
Review Request #157 — Created Sept. 28, 2007 and submitted
|Review Board SVN (deprecated)|
This patch makes several enhancements to the CVS scmtool: - If a password is given for a pserver, include it in the CVSROOT string. This makes it so a 'cvs login' is not necessary (though still allowed). - Tweak the diff parsing to work with patches between multiple revisions, for reviewing existing code. (The patch will have multiple 'retrieving revision ...' lines.) - Enhance the error handling to recognize more errors, and to distinguish FileNotFound from more general errors. For example, a misconfigured repo used to raise FileNotFound, which is confusing. SCMError makes it more clear.
- We don't have automated tests for pservers, but I manually checked that including the password works. - Added a new test to make sure that inter-revision diffs parse ok. - Added a new test to make sure that a bad revision number will raise FileNotFoundError. - Added a new test to check that a bad Repository config will raise SCMError.
