Based on some discussions here regarding plugin maintenance best
practices, I've updated the bisect plugin and decided to release it as 1.0.
- Previous versions of the plugin could only handle the "mainline"
revision stream; you had to create branches from revision subtrees to
bisect those. Now, the bisect plugin will properly traverse subtrees.
- Proper distutils setup information is now available. I've made some
attempts to make the information useful (per the recent discussions on
plugin packaging), but would not mind feedback here.
- Tested (and issues fixed) with bzr versions up to 1.2. Recent
testing shows that the plugin works back to bzr 0.18, and it may work
for even older versions.
I've only been able to test the plugin on Linux; testing/hints/patches
welcome for Mac or Windows.
I've also reorganized my bzr site a little bit. The wiki points to
http://bzr.licquia.org/bzr-bisect; this won't work anymore for
checkouts, but does make enough sense in a browser to figure out the
right path. It's now at http://bzr.licquia.org/bzr-bisect/trunk (with
release branches potentially available there too, but none at present).
Browsing via loggerhead is also available.
Finally, despite my skepticism to poor Toshio Kuratomi, I am open to
requests to pull the bisect plugin into some larger collection, into
core, or wherever people think is best.
