Dear Lazy Hackers,

Here is my version of, based on a version I found around the web, with a couple of formatting changes and incomplete git support.

Here is webkit's heavily hacked version of, apparently based on a separate version and without multiple ChangeLog support as far as I see, but with full git support.

Who is the brave soul / fearless Perl hacker to merge them and create an authentic version and then add it to gnome-common?

I also have a bunch of other gnome scripts I use here.



Labels: , ,

I prefer just using thomasvs' moap instead, personally.
The scripts seems very useful, thanks.
Hey Behdad,

Are you saying I'm not blogging enough about moap, so that it's not on your radar, or did you find something lacking in it that you choose not to use it ?
Ok, ok, got the message.

Trying to run moap, it doesn't like to build though.

Main reason I avoided it is that I don't have DOAP files and don't care about freshmeat, so it didn't seem to offer much for me.
It doesn't like to build though -> don't leave me in suspense, tell me what the problem is.

If you don't have DOAP files and you don't care about freshmeat, here are some other things you can do:

- version control tools:
- currently supports Bazaar, CVS, Darcs, Git, SVN, git-svn
- maintain ignore lists
- prepare ChangeLog entry based on local diff, using ctags
- check in based on ChangeLog entry
- show diff based on last ChangeLog entry
- bug tracker tools:
- show individual bugs and queries from trac and bugzilla

The thing you just wrote in perl (and you seem to have as much of a dislike for it as I do) is something that was already written, maintainably, in Python
Thanks Thomas. I already filed a bug in moap's Trac. I'll find you on IRC to figure it out.
