Description Andrew Liles 2002-10-07 17:22:02 UTC
I have found the need to produce patches from CVS and wrap them up in a tar or 
zip file.  There is no easy way to do this.  I want to be able to pick all 
files between certain tags or from a particular date, for example.

CvsTagDiff goes partway there but just produces a list of candidate files. 

My task 'CvsExportDiff' fills the gap.  It internally calls CvsTagDiff and then 
invokes 'cvs export' to extract candidate files of a particular revision; it 
then provides the files in a directory for later tar'ing, etc.

I am contributing the source code and documentation.  I hope others will find 
this useful.
