I want to propose a more organized effort to add a system-wide support for CVS (and other vcs like Subversion) to KDE. Right now we have a lot of code duplication.
- Cervisia with its new CVS DCOP service
- KDevelop with cvs and svn part
- KBabel with libcvs
- Quanta uses Cervisia (AFAIK)
- and in the future maybe more (Kate, KFileDialog?)
The two parts that might be interesting for code reuse (IMO) are a layer which provides easy access to the functionality of the command line client and a GUI layer with the dialogs to display the data (like the Browse Log dialog of Cervisia).
For Cervisia I decided to create DCOP service for the first layer and I was thinking about using KParts plugins for the second layer.
But before doing even more work, I was thinking, maybe we should create something that is useful for everybody. What do you think?
PS: I hope this mail was at least somewhat understandable.
