CVSTracNT V2.0.1 Build 20080601

Zhou JingYu(, CnPack Team.

1. CVSTrac Introduction
CVSTrac is A Web-Based Bug And Patch-Set Tracking System For CVS:

  * Automatically generates a patch-set log from CVS check-in comments
  * User-defined color-coded database queries
  * Web-based administration of the CVSROOT/passwd file
  * Built-in repository browser
  * Built-in Wiki
  * Very simple setup - a self-contained executable runs as CGI, from
    inetd, or as a stand-alone web server
  * Minimal memory, disk and CPU requirements - works on old hardware
  * Access permissions configurable separately for each user
  * Allows for anonymous users
  * Uses a built-in SQL database engine (SQLite) - no external RDBMS
  * Tested under Linux - works on other versions of Unix. Also works
    under Windows
  * Can be run from a chroot jail for added security.
  * GNU Public License

2. Windows Version Introduction
Usually CVSTrac works under Unix/Linux. In its official site, there's a
document describes how to work under Windows:
But it's difficult and restrained. So I make this software to help us use
CVSTrac more easily.

Our works:

  * Compile SQLite3 and CVSTrac under Cygwin
  * Write a NT service CVSTracSvc.exe to start as a service
  * Write CVSTracOption.exe to make configuration more easily
  * Write CTSender.exe and some plugins for sending ticket notificaition
  * Manage passwd for CVSNT
  * Import/Export CVSTrac users list
  * User-defined charset support.
  * Fix a series of problem for CVSNT

Compile Environment:

  * cygwin-
  * sqlite-3.5.9
  * cvstrac-2.0.1
  * Delphi 7

Tested Environment:

  * Windows Server 2003 Stardard Edition
  * Windows 2000 Server SP4
  * Windows XP Professtional SP1

  * When system running, do not modify cvs repository and module prefix in
    database, except cvs repository moved.
  * Backup database directory when needed, rewrite it when restore.
  * Configure ticket notificaition plugins if you want to use ticket notify ferture.
