       svn2cl - Create a ChangeLog from a subversion log.


       svn2cl [OPTION]...  [PATH]...


       svn2cl  generates  a  classic  GNU-style  ChangeLog  from the log messages in a subversion
       repository.  It acts as a wrapper around the 'svn log' command,  parsing  the  XML  output
       with  an XSLT stylesheet.  Alternatively it can generate HTML output intended for use with
       the svn2html.css style sheet that comes with svn2cl.

       In addition to its own options, it accepts and passes along most svn log options; see 'svn
       help  log' for a list of those and their documentation.  If PATH is not given, svn2cl will
       run svn log on the current directory, so it should do the right thing when  run  from  the
       top of a subversion checkout of the project.

              Strip NAME from the first part of all file names (e.g. project/trunk).  By defaults
              the current path inside the repository is stripped.

              Wrap lines at NUM characters.  By default, lines  are  wrapped  at  75  characters.
              This option is ignored when the --html option is specified.

              This  option  causes  all  commit messages to be grouped by day, as long as all the
              changes are by the same author.  By default each message is listed separately  with
              its own timestamp.

              Include a blank line between log entries when they are grouped by day.  Only useful
              with the --group-by-day option.  This option is ignored when the --html  option  is
              specified, edit svn2html.css to tune the layout.

       -i, --include-rev
              Include  the  subversion revision number in the ChangeLog.  If the --html option is
              specified this is implied, edit svn2html.css to turn it off.

       -a, --include-actions
              Add action labels [ADD], [DEL] and [CPY] tags to files to show the  operation  that
              is performned on the files.

              Add  a line break (or multiple line breadks) between the paths and the log message.
              If the --html option is specified this option is ignored, edit svn2html.css to  set

              Newlines  inside  paragraphs are ignored and paragraphs are re-wrapped.  Paragraphs
              are separated by empty lines.

              If outputting an HTML file the NAME is used as the title.  This option  is  ignored
              for normal text output.

              This  option  is  used to generate links from the revision numbers in the generated
              HTML file.  If NAME contains two hashes '##' that part  will  be  replaced  by  the
              revision  number, otherwise the revision number will be appended to NAME.  Only the
              first occurrence of '##' will be replaced.
              This option is ignored for normal text output.

              This option is used to generate links from references to tickets within the  commit
              message  in  the  generated HTML file.  Anything that looks like a ticket reference
              (e.g. '#foo') will be replaced with a link to NAME with the ticket part  ('foo'  in
              the example) appended.
              This option is ignored for normal text output.

              This  option  is  used  for  finding ticket markers in the commit message (when the
              --ticket-link option is used).  The default value is '#'.
              This option is ignored for normal text output.

              Any log messages that start with the specified STRING are ignored and will not show
              up in the output.  The STRING comparison is case sensitive.

       -o, -f, --output=FILE, --file=FILE
              Output  ChangeLog  to  FILE instead of the default ChangeLog (or ChangeLog.html for
              HTML output).

              Output ChangeLog to stdout instead of to a file.

              The FILE is used to map author names as exported by svn to  full  names.   See  the
              section on AUTHORS FILES below for more information.
              Note that the --authors option can have poor performance in some cases.

       --html Generate  an HTML file containing a ChangeLog instead of the default text ChangeLog
              file.  This feature is still experimental.  The svn2html.css file that is  included
              in the distribution can be used to format the HTML.

       -h, --help
              Show short summary of options.

       -V, --version
              Show version of program.

       Optional  PATH  arguments  and the following options are passed directly to the 'svn --xml
       log'  command:  -r,  --revision,  --targets,   --stop-on-copy,   --username,   --password,
       --no-auth-cache, --non-interactive, --config-dir and --limit.
       See 'svn help log' for more information on these options.


       An authors file is basically an XML file that should look something like:
           <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
             <author uid="arthur">
               Arthur de Jong &lt;;
       svn2cl  searches for <author> tags with the specified uid attribute.  The content from the
       author tag is substituted for the author name.

       The <author> tag may also contain XML child tags which can be useful  for  embedding  HTML
       into  the  result.   For  this  to  work namespace information should be included for HTML
           <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
           <authors xmlns:html="">
             <author uid="arthur">
               Arthur de Jong &lt;<html:b></html:b>&gt;
       The svn2cl distribution contains a sample authors.xml file.

       As a bonus a plain text authors file  that  looks  like  the  following  is  automatically
       converted to the XML representation:
           arthur:Arthur de Jong <>


       Note  that  the  default revison range for svn log is BASE:1.  This means that svn2cl will
       not always include the most recent revisons of the repository.  Either  run  'svn  update'
       before running svn2cl or pass '-r HEAD:1'.


       Run svn log recursively on the current directory and generate a text ChangeLog file in the
       current directory for the entire log history:

       Output the changes from the last week, while including revision numbers in the ChangeLog:
           svn2cl -i -r "HEAD:{`date -d '7 days ago' '+%F %T'`}"
       (actually subversion will include the first revision before the specified period)

       Generate   an   HTML   changelog   for    svn://,    removing
       "project/trunk"  from the file names in the changelog.  Group all commits per day into one
       ChangeLog entry and only include changes from 2005:
           svn2cl --html --strip-prefix=project/trunk --group-by-day \
                  -r '{2006-01-01}:{2005-01-01}' \


       'svn help log'
