Fossil: Limitation workarounds

November 16, 2009 — BarryK
I have identified four limitations of Fossil that causes problems with hosting the Woof project. As far as I know, these limitations also exist in GIT and SVN. I have added to my Fossil Quick Guide page explaining these limitations (scroll down near bottom):

I developed a wrapper script named 'fossil' to workaround these limitations (and I renamed the binary executable to 'fossil.bin'). This script (and fossil.bin) is in a PET package, linked-to in the Fossil Quick Guide.

Direct link to PET package:

Note: I am currently doing some testing that these Fossil workarounds do actually work.
Then I'll get back to fixing some bugs in the T2 build (Tpup).

Then I discovered that Fossil doesn't support symlinks either -- that's the killer for me. See my post:
