Pluggeable diff...

From: Paul Libbrecht <paul_at_activemath.org>

Hello List,

We recently played with the cmd-diff and cmd-diff3 settings in the hope
of getting "pluggeable diffs" as we wished... and... well.. it works
but it is not at all what we understood as pluggeable diffs.

Namely, we had expected such a setting to be the diff used to compute,
at commit time, the difference to be stored in the database (more or
less equivalent to what's stored as fragements of the ",v" files of
CVS), and, at update time, the merge algorithm to modify the files.

We have an XML-diff and would like to put it to use inside such a tool
as subversion. The latter should provide us the storage and transport
mechanism, being agnostic of the data of the diffs and updates... Maybe
I should call this the "patch" format.

Did I understand wrongly ?
How hard would it be to modify Subversion so that the patch-format is
pluggeable.

paul
