Since the Summer of Code of Version Control API's inception ended, there had always been one piece of cvs.module functionality that hadn't yet been ported to the new VCS-independent infrastructure. Incidentally, this was also one of the most visible and important features on drupal.org: packaging releases from CVS tags and branches by means of a simple two-step form.
Well, not anymore! Yesterday, I released Version Control API 6.x-1.0-rc1, which sports a number of important improvements under the hood, and versioncontrol_project 6.x-1.0-rc1, which makes use of these new features to provide release node integration and a release tarball packaging script, like the one found on drupal.org. The main difference is that the code is not CVS specific, and even though only the CVS backend supports the required functionality at the moment there is nothing holding up an implementation for SVN or the newly-revamped Git backend.
The latter has pretty much singe-handedly been ported by new contributor CorniI (a.k.a. Cornelius R.) to Drupal 6 and to API changes in Version Control API for 6.x-1.x. He's not yet done making sure that everything works as intended, but most importantly the Git backend runs again and can be played with. Good times coming for DVCS support!
So with Version Control API & friends being "feature-complete", the next step is to push it onto drupal.org and replace cvs.module. For that to happen, the primary task is to complete the migration scripts that pull data from cvs.module to Version Control API, If you want to help out with that, you can get in contact with me, dww and hunmonk - unless new cvs.module functionality is added in the meantime, the data migration is the last missing piece for getting deployed on drupal.org.
In general, the roadmap for Version Control API looks like this:
Hope to see you contributing soon!
