Using another version control (e.g. Subversion)
Can Foswiki use other version control systems than cvs (e.g. SVN, GIT)?
Is there a ducumented way to access these other systems?
I heard about "subversive.pm". How can it be used?
As it is released, Foswiki only supports RCS. However it is reasonably straightforward to plug in any other revision control system that maintains linear per-file revision numbers, such as CVS. The interface module simply execs the relevant command-line programs, using commands specified in the RCS section of Foswiki.spec. You can modify these commands using
Subversion is harder, because there is a single revision number for the whole repository.
was the start of a work to make that sort of scheme supportable, but I never finished it.
Most interest at the moment is focused in plugging in more efficient store representations, such as databases. Such stores require a closer level of integration than the command-line version control modules, and as yet none of these experiments has been publicly released.
