Elego Software Solutions GmbH has released Zync, which provides for the exporting of objects from the Zope database to a traditional file system and vice versa, and DCVS (Distributed Concurrent Versions System) 0.1.8. The latter extends the version control system CVS and the file distribution and synchronization program CVSup with functionality to distribute CVS repositories with local lines of development.
Zync is designed for using an external version control system together with Zope and to implement staging concepts using multiple Zope servers, according to
MacTech magazine. Plus, there are plans to use Zync as the base for the integration of commercial version control systems into the Zope architecture. More information can be found at the company’s Web site.
Meanwhile, DCVS handles synchronization of the distributed repositories automatically in the background. The code is freely distributable under the GNU and BSD style licenses (for the CVS and CVSup part, respectively).
Version 0.1.8 adds the ability to import CVS 1.12.1, current CVSup sources from John Polstra for securing transport via ssh, and enhanced build system and more.
The project’s homepage provides the option for download of DCVS and access to release notes, bug tracking and details.
