Re: PATCH: $Header$ handling

Alex,

I am grateful for the patch... I am getting ready to covert my PVCS VM
repo over to Subversion, and I was going to s/$Header$/$Id$\n$HeadURL$/
in all of my source code and then go update our coding standards (that
require our developers to put $Header$ at the top of each new source
file) and then explain to my few dozen developers why they have to
change their process... But, with this patch, I won't have too.
Thanks much. Sometimes the littlest things have a bigger impact than
you expect. (Please accept John's advice to follow the standards in
HACKING so this patch can be considered for adoption, thanks. )

I've been closely watching the keyword topic since I joined the list
(and have a patch in process to change the keyword handling completely),

and I have to say that $Header$ has not been that highly demanded (no
offense intended). As I suggested in your original thread, the use of
$Header$ to create reports is trying to map CVS methodology to
Subversion.

That being said, please read HACKING and include a log message in the
project style so that this patch can be considered for adoption.

John
