VCP::RevMapDB(3)      User Contributed Perl Documentation     VCP::RevMapDB(3)

NAME
       VCP::RevMapDB - Persistant storage for id -> (name, rev_id) maps

SYNOPSIS
	   use base qw(	VCP::RevMapDB );

DESCRIPTION
       By default, most	VCP::Dest::* drivers keep track	of the relationship
       between the id field assigned by	the (original) VCP::Source::* driver
       and the final name and rev_id (or whatever fields are important to it)
       in the destination repository so	that the previous_id fields, which
       refer to	the original id, may be	resolved when backfilling or
       branching.

       The VCP::*::revml drivers do not	do this; they do not need to resolve
       id fields.

       The intent for this file	is to serve as a base class so that individual
       sites may write their own RevMapDB plugins to, for instance, store this
       state in	a RDBMS	table.	This is	not quite offered at this time;	we
       need to add an option to	the appropriate	VCP::Dest::* modules to	allow
       the appropriate RevMapDB	file to	be loaded.

       To write	your own RevMapDB file,	see VCP::RevMapDB::sdbm.
