Always consume the --nocgi command-line option even if it is not used. Leaf check-in: 8594e7a68a user: drh tags: trunk
08:48
Drew better analogies between Bitcoin's answer to the 51% attack and to GitHub in the new Anonymity section of the blockchain doc to show that Fossil doesn't even try to provide the sorts of behavior that allow fully anonymous contribution to a blockchain. Leaf check-in: 87b1385dac user: wyoung tags: fossil-as-blockchain
08:10
Added a para to the prior section. check-in: 69e0ea54a7 user: wyoung tags: fossil-as-blockchain
08:00
Added the "Anonymity" section to the new blockchain doc. check-in: b357dc2b03 user: wyoung tags: fossil-as-blockchain
07:04
Small clarity fix in the new CAP theorem doc check-in: 8a9facbb3e user: wyoung tags: trunk
06:42
All but rewrote the Cryptocurrency section of the new blockchain.md doc to clarify the sorts of frauds each system has to prevent so that we can draw clearer analogies. check-in: 154d848d2e user: wyoung tags: fossil-as-blockchain
04:11
Merged trunk changes in check-in: 95203913c0 user: wyoung tags: fossil-as-blockchain
04:11
Added fragment identifiers to the new CAP theorem doc. check-in: 991b089925 user: wyoung tags: trunk
2020-10-07
07:07
Removed an extraneous space from pikchrshow DOM output. pikchr command error output now prepends a newline to pikchr-level errors to keep line number comment alignment intact for the first line. check-in: c3b2671f6d user: stephan tags: trunk
06:59
pikchr_process() now makes use of the as-yet-not-public PIKCHR_PLAINTEXT_ERRORS flag to maintain control of the error output DOM structure. check-in: ce3046290b user: stephan tags: trunk
05:39
Increase maximum token size in Pikchr to 50000 bytes. Important for macros. check-in: da1ff5c2d1 user: drh tags: trunk
00:29
Removed several weak arguments from the blockchain.md doc and added a lot more info about cryptocurrencies to show the differences between them and Fossil. Tweaked much of the preexisting material. check-in: 3d55f44376 user: wyoung tags: fossil-as-blockchain
2020-10-05
18:15
Recast the blockchain.md doc as "Is Fossil a Blockchain?" (answer: mostly no) and updated all references to it to either remove the term, use "repository" instead where that's sufficiently clear, or to say either "Merkle tree" or "hash tree" instead where we need to distinguish the hash tree itself from the rest of the repo DB file's contents. ... check-in: 855578b610 user: wyoung tags: fossil-as-blockchain
17:02
Added a new doc, "Fossil and the CAP Theorem." It distills some good info from the forum, so we can just point at it instead of recapitulating it. But it's being checked in now because an upcoming commit will refer to it. check-in: 3ddd56d0b0 user: wyoung tags: trunk
16:37
Added "Restoring From An Encrypted Backup" section to the new backup.md doc. check-in: e0a38eb3eb user: wyoung tags: trunk
14:12
Fixed another dangling Markdown link check-in: e5ad07dcf6 user: wyoung tags: trunk
14:10
URL fix check-in: 56b13f2a3c user: wyoung tags: trunk
13:59
Fixed the scp command in the new backup.md doc check-in: e3e4bec360 user: wyoung tags: trunk
13:55
Another typo fix in the backup.md doc check-in: eb34dd52e2 user: wyoung tags: trunk
13:45
Typo fix check-in: 21a63c8c88 user: wyoung tags: trunk
13:16
Assorted tweaks to the new material in the gitusers doc. check-in: 09acf696d2 user: wyoung tags: trunk
12:37
Added the "Autosync is Intransitive" section to the new backup doc. check-in: 1299d67786 user: wyoung tags: trunk
12:24
A few small refinements to the new backup doc. check-in: ea57a2f723 user: wyoung tags: trunk
12:08
Greatly expanded the "Autosync" section of the gitusers doc. Among other things, it now references the new backup.md doc. check-in: 3ddc1d9458 user: wyoung tags: trunk
12:07
Added info about private branches to the new backup.md doc. check-in: 78c0c55a41 user: wyoung tags: trunk
11:54
Added a new doc, "Backing Up a Remote Fossil Repository". check-in: 5c2ef2a2e3 user: wyoung tags: trunk
11:25
Change instances of %s(g.zTop) into %R. check-in: a40e8a0934 user: drh tags: trunk
10:18
Greatly expanded the "Repositories And Checkouts Are Distinct" section of the gitusers.md doc. check-in: 386fc49e3f user: wyoung tags: trunk
10:13
uv ls/list doc patch from https://fossil-scm.org/forum/forumpost/cdc43ffe60. check-in: ecac7c4ea7 user: stephan tags: trunk
2020-10-04
14:35
Exchanged most uses of %s(g.zTop) and such in the code with use of %R in Fossil's special printf() type functions. (The branch is named after just one of several of these, mprintf(), being one of the shortest names.) At the least, this is shorter, simpler code, but there is also some hope that it may fix some doubled slash problems someone is... Leaf check-in: 2907721acd user: wyoung tags: prefer-mprintf-r

02:06
Clarity tweaks to the new "multiple origins" scenario in the gitusers doc. check-in: 77bb3e4c33 user: wyoung tags: trunk
01:53
Small tweaks to previous. check-in: e67c413d50 user: wyoung tags: trunk
01:38
Added a new "multiple origin servers" section to the gitusers doc to replace the obsolete one just removed. This not only shows off Fossil's new "fossil remote add" feature set, it acts as a sort of white paper comparing Git to Fossil in a common use case scenario. check-in: e3cef726f2 user: wyoung tags: trunk
01:35
Expanded on several points in the gitusers doc, added links to other docs, added named anchors to all of the top-level sections, and removed the obsolete section on "no multiple remotes" now that we have the "fossil remote add" feature. check-in: 2306f8164d user: wyoung tags: trunk
2020-10-02
22:11
Clarified and expanded the "create branches at point of need" section of the gitusers.md doc. check-in: 331dc0d334 user: wyoung tags: trunk
21:59
Reflected the GitHub change of "master" to "main" into our gitusers.md doc. check-in: b0ee3d5d75 user: wyoung tags: trunk
20:28
Changed the name of docs at the end of the quickstart doc to match their actual titles. check-in: 3449d9cee9 user: wyoung tags: trunk
20:25
Converted obsolete anchors in the quickstart doc to fragment identifiers on the headers, and added fragment IDs to all of the h2 level headers that lacked one. check-in: 8da7b15e71 user: wyoung tags: trunk
14:23
Removed a bit of unnecessary copy/paste backwards compatibility from [15001dd013]. check-in: aae387d956 user: stephan tags: trunk
09:38
Added --hash flag to ls -v, for consistency with status/changes, per https://fossil-scm.org/forum/forumpost/896de8f963. check-in: 15001dd013 user: stephan tags: trunk

21:21
Clarity pass on the rebaseharm doc following the recent Hacker News thread, to address confusions that came up there. check-in: 068e26af37 user: wyoung tags: trunk
20:59
Removed point 4.0 from the rebaseharm doc: it said that rebase is a problem because Git makes the change immediately to the blockchain, but that's a problem with Git in general, due to its commit-then-push model, not a problem with rebase in particular. If Fossil had a rebase feature, there is no good reason to believe we would do this as well. The... check-in: 6e0dba257b user: wyoung tags: trunk
20:37
The rebaseharm.md doc referred to rebase04.svg *twice*, so while all SVGs associated with the doc were replaced, the second became a broken link when the SVG files were removed. Simply duplicating the code with comments to try to stave off version drift for now. check-in: a61ac66b63 user: wyoung tags: trunk
18:34
Improvements to the "fossil import" command so that it can now (hopefully) interpret "breezy" files. check-in: d82534b3ac user: drh tags: trunk
18:33
Fix an issue with the "R" (rename)" and "C" (copy) commands when interpreting git-fast-export files. Closed-Leaf check-in: 8e5b010349 user: drh tags: breezy-fast-import
16:01
Latest pikchr.c fixes an issue with "same" and lines that have a "to" attribute. check-in: 42caafaf3b user: drh tags: trunk
12:46
Fix an issue with the logic that prevents Fossil control artifacts from being imported as regular files. Probably unrelated to the breezy changes. Came up during testing. check-in: 92ab247435 user: drh tags: breezy-fast-import
12:13
An attempt to enhance the git-fast-export reader so that it can handle breezy-generated output files. check-in: ddcd35d6a5 user: drh tags: breezy-fast-import

21:11
Update the built-in SQLite to the latest 3.33 alpha for testing. check-in: 02c6b07eab user: drh tags: trunk
10:39
Improved processing of nested macros in Pikchr. check-in: f7259ea07c user: drh tags: trunk
