#33 --allversions doesn't work

genxref (49)
Malcolm Box

This is a tracking bug for the the CVS.pm changes
needed to make --allversions work properly across CVS
and Files.

Currently one or the other works - we need both to work
with the same semantics before 1.00

    The versions for CVS.pm are branches and tags. These can be
    applied at any level of the codebase, so for example version
    'branch-for-feature-X' might only exist in
    myapp/src/component/foo and nowhere else in the codebase.
    It wouldn't make sense for --allversions to index this
    version. The best solution I can think of is for
    --allversions to index the default version. I already
    modified genxref to display an error if --allversions is
    used but the version range returns nothing (as is the case
    with CVS).

    Closed as this is unlikely to ever work well for CVS files
    since working out what all the branches/versions are is
    hard. It's also unlikely to be what's wanted in a LXR install.
