sbt-release-fossil is a small add-on to the sbt-release-plugin so that it works with Fossil SCM.

Problem description

If you have your sources in a Fossil SCM repository, and want to use the sbt-release-plugin to automate releases, you (may) have a problem: the sbt-release-plugin does not support Fossil SCM repositories.

This tiny plugin bridges the gap between the sbt-release-plugin and Fossil SCM.


Add the following line to your project/plugins.sbt:

addSbtPlugin("com.chiselapp.twenstar" % "sbt-release-fossil" % "0.2.4")

For all further configuration, follow the documentation of the sbt-release-plugin.


This plugin depends on the sbt-release-plugin and it runs under sbt versions 0.13.16 and 1.2.8.
