once the revs are in svn, I do a `svn diff -r$A:$B $file`
looking at ebox.pl
Heres a few things that can be seen here (if you look hard):
1. can estimate thrashing...
-r13:12 shows 47 changes,
this indicates that theres no overlap between the changes, otherwize
same pattern is evident with 12,11,10
on the other hand,
2. 1st rev was latest.
last column, comparing rev1 to all others, has changes in reverse.
3. monotonic increase in changes
in other columns, numbers increase as you go up the column,
This is partly an artifact - as the script iterates thru each directory,
RCS/ebox.pl,v --> ebox.pl
4. version to version changes are on the diagonal just above the
So, the Questions.
1. anybody see a better way to glean an understanding of history ?
2. will SVN ever support a re-upgrade ala my checksum check ?
3. is there any value to having this script in examples ?
