Versionary is a Perl CGI script which allows you to use the Web to navigate a CVS repository in a read-only manner.
This project is a fork of a fork. The original package was Bill Fenner's
which was done for the FreeBSD project. (As noted at that link, the
original script is no longer available.)
When that seemed abandoned or moribund, Henner Zeller took it
and breathed new life into it. Now that
seems to be quiescing, Ken Coar is taking the latest version of that
and bringing it here, giving it a new name in the process:
Other SourceForge projects that are based on Henner's
or are at least descended from it in some way, include:
Versionary intends to stay pretty close to the original idea
cvsweb: read-only Web access to source control systems.
currently nongoals include trying to make the full feature-set of
such systems available. No checkout, checking, et cetera --
just viewing, and maybe a little repository management.
Hen's version of
cvsweb also gave rise to
Greg Stein's ViewCVS project
-- primarily because Greg is
a Python addict and does not care for Perl.
At the moment there are only two mailing lists associated with this project:
See the Who's Who' for the project. Thin and lame, but oh well.
