cvschangelogbuilder -output=outputmode [-m=module -d=repository] [-b=branch] [-tagstart=tagname] [-tagend=tagname] [-ssh] [-rlogfile=rlogfile] [-keeprlogfile] [-dir=dirname] [-viewcvsurl=viewcvsurl] [-ignore=file/dir] [-only=file/dir] [-includeheader=file] [-allowindex] [-debug=x]


cvschangelogbuilder generates advanced ChangeLog/Report files for CVS projects/modules.


Where outputmode is:
listdeltabydate To get a changelog between 2 versions, sorted by date
listdeltabylog To get a changelog between 2 versions, sorted by log
listdeltabyfile To get a changelog between 2 versions, sorted by file
listdeltaforrpm To get a changelog between 2 versions for rpm spec files
buildhtmlreport To build an html report
Note that "between 2 versions" means (depends on tagstart/tagend options):
from start to a tagged version (version changes included)
from a tagged version (excluded) to another tagged version (included)
or from a tagged version until now (version changes excluded)
You can also add extra parameters when output=buildhtmlreport by adding them after a colon and separated by a comma, like this: -output=buildhtmlreport:param1,param2 This is extra paremeters available for -output=buildhtmlreport mode:
nosummary To remove summary part
nolinesofcode To remove lines of code part
nodevelopers To remove developers part
nodaysofweek To remove days of week part
nohours To remove hours part
notags To remove tags part
nolastlogs To remove last logs part
nolimit To not limit last logs to last 200
sortbyrevision To sort last logs by revision
includediff To include diff inside report page (very slow)
loosecommits To separate commits for same log by spaces
-m=module -d=repository
The 'module' and 'repository' are the CVS module name and the CVS repository. If current directory is the root of a CVS project built from a cvs checkout, cvschangelogbuilder will retreive module and repository value automatically. If no local copy of repository are available or to force other value, use:
-m=module To force value of module name
-d=repository To force value of CVSROOT
To work on another branch than the default branch.
To specify start tag version.
To specify end tag version.
To run CVS through ssh (this set env var CVS_RSH="ssh").
If an up-to-date log file already exists localy, you can use this option to avoid log download, for a faster result.
Once process is finished, you can ask to not remove the downloaded log file.
Output is built in directory dirname.
File's revisions in reports built by buildhtmlreport output are links to "viewcvs". String '__MODULE__' will be replaced by name of CVS module.
To exclude a file/dir off report.
To have reports only on file/dir that match.
To add content of a file after body tag.
To allow meta tag index (noindex by default).
To output on stderr some debug info with level x.
