Hi all,

From
http://sourceforge.net/mailarchive/forum.php?thread_id=7878243&forum_id=11441

cvs2cl has a nice feature where you can specify the
location of a Unix-style passwd file so that users
names are translated to their real names.

Please see the above link for a patch and further
explanation.

Regards,
James

    Following some discussion on the statsvn maillist, may I suggest to add a properties file to statcvs and, in its first use, to have the following attributes:
    user.<userId>.name=Real name
    user.<userId>.url=http:/// link to a home page for that user (only visible on a give users_<userId>.html page
    user.<userId>.imageUrl= link to an image for a give user
    user.<userId>.image=local image?

    Would you like me to have a go and submit a patch?
    Cheers

    Benoit

    This has now been checked in CVS.

    The default behaviour has not changed unless one gives a config file.

    the new option -config-file blabla.properties should be used and contain the following arguments for each user:

    user.userinlowercase.realName=Benoit Xhenseval
    user.userinlowercase.url=http://www.xhenseval.com/benoit
    user.userinlowercase.image=http://www.xhenseval.com/benoit/bx-avatar.jpg
    user.userinlowercase.email=

    Hope this is ok
    Benoit
