Various SVN Notes

At my current day-gig we are fully committed to subversion. I am a pretty heavy command-line user of the revision control system. There are a handful of things that I forget how to do on a fairly consistent basis. So without further ado here are some notes

Viewvc link directly to a line number

I am always emailing a link to a change-set or code-comment or code-section. The thing I always forget how to do is to link to the code line number in viewvc.


Use the query-string:

?view=markup#l

i.e.:

http://svn.collab.net/viewvc/svn/trunk/README?view=markup#l30

Useful linux gui tools

I often use kdesvn for its handy integration of a graphical diff tool like. xxdiff or kompare.
