Announcement: automatic changelog generation - SVN2Log

From: CORE <svn2log_at_svn2log.org>
Date: 2006-08-18 11:30:13 CEST


 I am pleased to announce renewed SVN2Log tool for automatic ChangeLog
 generation. It should be useful for all software publishers -
 commercial and non-commercial. It is useful for us and our clients,
 so I felt that we should share the script with community.

 It is available at http://www.svn2log.org
 Every suggestion is welcomed.

About SVN2Log

Do you want to publish a list of changes of your software project?
SVN2Log automatically generates changelogs from Subversion repository.
You do not need to waste your time and write special changelog
document with a subset of features already described in your SVN
commits' desriptions - you decide which parts will be displayed for
your users.


- automatically generates text ChangeLog file from Subversion
repository in standard GNU-style format;
- use /* ... */ comments in your SVN commits to mark parts of the
descriptions which you don't want to be visible for users;
- limit information presented using commandline switches;
- UTF-8 support;
- written in Python, easily scriptable so you can add it to your cron
- open sourced, free to use;


- you don't need to write the same information twice - once during SVN
commit and once in a file describing a list of changes;
- forces good practice of well-describing SVN commits among
- every developer decides which information will be presented to end
- provide always the latest information about changes in software used
by your clients;
- no reason to email ChangeLogs - users can have newest ChangeLogs
always published on the webpage, automatically;
