I used StatCVS on a repository with 12 active
authors, and I found it useful
to be able to see their names alongside their
The attached patch adds a -passwd <path> option to
StatCVS, which allows you
to specify the location of a Unix-style passwd file
name mappings. Users of cvs2cl will already be
familiar with a similar
feature in that utility.
So, if you have a file that contains
jmd:x:blah:blah:Jon M. Doe:blah
abc:x:blah:blah:Anne B. Collins:blah
the -passwd option with this file will map the
username sjr to "James Ring".
This patch doesn't actually change the HTML or graph
output of StatCVS. Follow-up patches will be posted
which rely on this patch.
