    v21 v22  
    8686There are a lot of limitations, so read them carefully.
    8787
     88'''RevtreePlugin assumes that each revision contains changes in a single branch -
     89and only one.'''[[br]]
     90If it's not the case, RevtreePlugin may not work, or behave badly.
     91
     92See #1090 and #1191 for details about this design choice, as well as #1354 and
     93#1635.
     94
     95CVS switchers, please be sure to read the dedicated
     96[RevtreePlugin#SVNrepositoryimportedfromCVS section]
     97
    8898 1. the RevtreePlugin generates inlined SVG.
    8999   * SVG is only supported on modern browsers

     124Sorry, RST support is broken on Trac Hacks for now. You can get the
     125compatibility matrix from [attachment:compatmatrix.txt].

     290=== SVN repository imported from CVS ===
     291
     292I never used `cvs2svn` myself, but the following information might be useful for
     293those who want to import their CVS-managed source code into a new SVN
     294repository, and still be able to browse the repository with the RevtreePlugin.
     295
     296Thanks to Marcio Marchini for providing these tips:
     297
     298> It is perfectly possible to make cross-branch commits using CVS and
     299> Subversion, so by default when cvs2svn sees what looks like a CVS
     300> cross-branch commit, it converts it as a Subversion cross-branch commit.[[br]]
     301> But you can use a switch in the options file to choose different
     302> behavior.  See the following section in cvs2svn-example.options:
     303{{{
     304# To prevent CVS commits from different projects from being merged
     305# into single SVN commits, change this option to False:
     306ctx.cross_project_commits = True
     307
     308# To prevent CVS commits on different branches from being merged into
     309# single SVN commits, change this option to False:
     310ctx.cross_branch_commits = True
     311}}}
     312> If you want to use your project with Revtree, you should set both of
     313> these options to False.
     314>
     315> If you have already used your converted repository for a while, then you
     316> already have commits on top of the ones generated by cvs2svn and it
     317> would be very difficult to change your repository retroactively. It
     318> could possibly be done by re-converting with cvs2svn, "svnadmin dump"ing
     319> the post-conversion commits to a dumpfile, hacking the dumpfile to fix
     320> the revision numbers that it refers to, then "svnadmin load"ing the
     321> dumpfile onto the newly-converted repository.
     322
     323Anyway, it seems that `cvs2svn` enclines to generate changesets that Subversion
     324APIs fail to describe properly. See #1638.
