RCS keywords in git

Reported by: Raymond Toy Owned by: somebody
Priority: minor Milestone:
Component: Core Version: 2011-09
Keywords: Cc:


With the move to git, all of the RCS keywords in the sources are now obsolete. Something needs to be done with them.

We can use git filters to add RCS keywords. This really slows down cloning.

Carl suggested modifying the compiler so that file-comments are handled specially by calling out to git to get the appropriate information. Some tests indicate this slows down compilation by about 20%, caused by running git to look up the information.

Still need to deal with some other RCS keywords that aren't in the file-comment.

Fix ticket:48. Use Carl's idea to use git to insert the appropriate comment into the compiled file. If git is not found or if some other error occurs, the file comment is whatever string was given.

Need to update the file-comments of every file to remove erroneous dates and revisions.

Fix ticket:49. In every file-comment, replace the existing $Header$ entries with just the file path, removing the revision number, date, author and state. The actual information is now computed during compilation and stored in the fasl itself. (See ticket:48.)
