I checked in some changes this weekend to the cvs tasks. What they do
is completely retrofit changes I have been testing that allow an
override of the sharpcvs in favor of a more mature client. The syntax
should be identical to the existing tasks but there are also some
additional attributes and a global "usesharpcvslib" property that allow
the specification of whether or not to use sharpcvslib. I have also
added fileset support for non-sharpcvslib clients, but unfortunately
sharpcvslib does not support this yet so it will just display a help
I have encountered the following issues which I will try to work
1) not specifying CVS_HOME environment variable failure to find cvs:
caused by bug in path search?
2) using .net version 1-1 causes sharpcvslib command line client
(compiled under version 1.0) to gac: I am going to look into using the
"useruntime" option for this.
If you want to globally switch your client specify the property:
<property name=3D"sourcecontrol.usesharpcvslib" =
The task also supports a a css-type scoping (i.e. the property closes to
the execution of the object defines which is used), in case there are
some features/ uses for a specific client at a more detailed level.
Please file a bug and/ or send me an email if you come across any
issues, and feedback is always welcome.
