eccvs is a
tool for managing different versions of a software
project. It provides a simple and intuitive user interface. As the name
suggests, it is actually based on the existing CVS (Concurrent Versions
System) command line tool. The acronym "eccvs" expands to "easy concurrent versions system".
Just making the version control easier.
This software is far from complete. It has a long way to
go to attain
its objectives. The source code is not yet released to the public
but the CVS repository was set for this project. So anyone, who
wishes to hack on the source code, can download it through CVS.
The main objective of this project is to
enable an ordinary
user to work with CVS with less effort. This can only be achieved
through a nice user interface (which is always true for every piece of
software). The source code, that is now available for download, has the
following basic features.
- Wizard-based interface
- Elegant working copy view
- More common way of file system browsing (like
currently under its heavy development stage. Like any other Open-source
software, this one will also follow the "release early and release
often" strategy to keep the pace in development.
