Source control revision number

Sep 8, 2011 at 4:13 PM

Would it be possible to use source control revision number as part of the version?

It is already possible if you use subversion!

I've wrote a plugin for Build Version Increment which inserts the revision as part of the version. For more information and download visit:

Cool! Thank you.

Why don't you add your code to this project?

Haven't tried crea-doo, but there is also on codeplex happyturtle pluggin, for Build Version Increment which adds svn support. I just posted a patch today to make it work with Build Version Increment 2.5. Make sure you also d/l the or it won't work. The patch also contains an incrementor of my own to split the svn rev # bettween build and revision number, since .net does not support numbers higger than 65535.

How would I apply the patch file?

Could you point me out to a help or manual?

Well if you have TortoiseSVN you can check out the project and apply the patch over it. If not, you will probably find the patching process a bit complicated. I could send you the sources or even the compiled binaries if you wish.

Are these changes in the latest release of "Build Version Increment"? If they are not, could you post binaries here or perhaps create new release?

Unfortunately the SVN pluggin is not integrated with "Build Version Increment". There has been a discussion about it some time ago and the developpers of BVI did not want to ship SharpSvn (which is 3mb) to everyone. There was also a licence issue if I recall.

Anyway, BVI have a plugin system and the SVN pluggin (HappyTurtle) uses that. I cannot post the binaries or make a release for the SVN pluggin (HappyTurtle) because I am not a developper of the project. I have tried to contact the developper to no avail yet. The project seems abandonned. If nothing moves in the next few days, I will probably fork the project and create a new one here on codeplex. I'll update this thread if I do so.

In the meantime, I can send you the binaries by email in a zip, the are juste under 4mbs. Just send me your email address by private message using my codeplex profile.

Thank you.

I've figured out how to apply the patch and I am good for now.

Will be waiting for you to add this to BVI one way or the other.
