NAME

cvsblame - Shows a blame-annotated representation of a CVS controlled file in Konqueror.  

SYNOPSIS

cvsblame <filename>  

DESCRIPTION

cvsblame opens Konqueror to display the output of cvs annotate of a cvs controlled file. When the mouse is on a revision number shown in the second column, a popup with the respective log message appears.

In the popup, a proper mailto: link to the author of a revision can be created as follows: In your home directory, make a file .cvsblame. In that file, enter for each repository you are working with a line like

      accounts :pserver:gehrmab@cvs.kde.org:/home/kde /home/bernd/.kdeaccounts

where the accounts file contains a simple list of cvs usernames in the first column and the respective mail address in the second.  

BUGS

Does not really work for filenames which are not in the current directory
Is a hack. Really.
