r1000 SITE_REDESIGN - fixed CSS code for MSIE - redesign product pages r1001 SWITCH_LANGUAGE - added language switcher to headerThat way when looking at the log history, I immediately knew which commit was related to which feature. Today I needed to port some my changes to a different repository - so I had to check all the revisions related to e.g. SITE_REDESIGN feature and review them. It's an easy task in TortoiseSVN, however I'm on Linux now (and extraordinary RabbitVCS does not yet have the feature of searching in log messages). So I wrote a small tool that would do the task for me - and here I present you with
svn-grepWith this tool, you could easily search all your commit history for a given string and save accompanying log messages and diff files in a specified directory for review. You could use it for tracking poor-man's branches as I am, find a bugfix for a given bug etc.
$ cd my-project $ svn-grep SWITCH_LANGUAGEThis will fetch all logs & diff files for all revisions having SWITCH_LANGUAGE in log message and put it into my-project/report-SWITCH_LANGUAGE. So in one central place you have all the related files and you could, as I am right now, manually review and port the feature to a similar project.
Download and infosvn-grep is hosted at GitHub alongside with my other tools for Subversion (currently the script exporting a working copy to a zip). It's MIT-licensed, so you can freely download & use it. You're also welcome to fork the project and introduce some new features for it, right now it's just a newborn baby :)
See the project page for download and more info.
But it still looks like I'm moving slowly into git...
