Subject: [OMPI devel] Automatic CMRs for ompi-v1.4 / v1.5
From: Rainer Keller (keller_at_[hidden])

Hello all,
Indiana University has created more SVN goodness for us: CMRs can be created
and/or amended via magic strings in SVN commit messages.

This will help save a lot of time by:
 1.) not manually having to create CMRs
 2.) allow the original developer decide what is required
 3.) not require the RMs to "nag" people, asking whether rXXX is worthwhile,
 4.) etc....

If You want to create a CMR to patch from the trunk to one of the branches,
add the following text somewhere into your SVN commit message.


Valid MILESTONE values include "v1.4", "v1.4.1", ..., "v1.5", "v1.5.1",
...etc. (note that there must be a corresponding Trac milestone). For
example, to close ticket #42 and create a CMR for v1.5:

    svn ci -m "This fixes #42 and should cmr:v1.5 to the branch as well"

If you need to amend an existing CMR, use the ":CMR-TICKET" notation to
specify which existing Trac ticket to amend. For example (assuming the prior
commit created a v1.5 CMR #4711):

    svn ci -m "This really fixes #42, and should be added to cmr:v1.5#4711"

You can also create multiple CMRs from a single commit:

    svn ci -m "Big Important fix. Needs to go to both cmr:v1.4 and cmr:v1.5"

As you know the v1.5 series will be feature driven, therefore you may create a
CMR for a feature to enter at a later milestone (e.g., v1.5.2) and later refer
to the very same CMR to move over when it is ready to be included (as long as
a corresponding Trac milestone exists for it).

*PLEASE NOTE* If the cmr:-parsing script is unable to understand your SVN
commit message (e.g., you get the syntax wrong, you specify a milestone that
doesn't exist, you try to amend a ticket that is not a matching CMR, etc.),
the commit will abort *WITHOUT WRITING TO THE SVN REPOSITORY* and show you a
brief error message indicating what you did wrong. You can just fix what you
did wrong and then re-commit.

With best regards,
Jeff and Rainer
