Ticket #107 (closed defect: wontfix)
Incorrect CVS conversion (involving modules)
|Reported by:||neilc||Owned by:||lele|
I'm trying to use Tailor 0.9.27 to produce a Mercurial version of the Postgres upstream CVS repository. My tailor configuration file is attached. The bootstrap run of Tailor results in a 1996-era CVS checkout in the "old_repo" subdirectory, and then what appears to be a faithful Mercurial version of that 1996 repository in the "migrated" subdirectory. Curiously, "hg log" on the produced Mercurial repository results in some log entries that go back to February 21st or so, but no further.
Tailor 0.9.27, Hg 0.9.3, CVS 1.11.22 on the client, some older version of CVS on the remote anoncvs server. The same problem persists if I use cvsup/rsync to mirror the repository locally and run Tailor against that.
On IRC, Lele mentioned the problem might be related to the upstream repository's use of CVS modules.
