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

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

    use base qw( VCP::RevMapDB );

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.
