We're using BZR with the "Decentralized with shared mainline" workflow.
We want to integrate with our bug tracker (http://www.rap-x.com), but we
need to be able to work offline. So we've created a Push plugin that
loops through revisions in the current push, checks each revision for a
bug id, and then posts this bug through a soap call:
current_rev_no = push_result.old_revno
source = push_result.source_branch
while current_rev_no <= push_result.new_revno:
current_rev_id = source.get_rev_id(current_rev_no)
message = source.repository.get_revision(current_rev_id).message
bug_message = re.search("[\s|^](\#)(\d+)",message)
bug_id = bug_message.group(2)
However, we'd like to be able to get a diff for each revision at the
same time (the DIFF will be added to the bug tracker comment). I've dug
a bit into bzrlib but have got confused with
branches/trees/repositories/deltas and was hoping that someone more au
fait with the api could advise me.
So, in summary, can anyone on this list advise me how, given a Branch
object and two revision numbers, it is best to generate a diff (as a
Thanks for any suggestions.
