C.3.5.1 Verifying log messages

The following is a little silly example of a `verifymsg' file, together with the corresponding `rcsinfo' file, the log message template and a verification script. We begin with the log message template. We want to always record a bug-id number on the first line of the log message. The rest of log message is free text. The following template is found in the file `/usr/cvssupport/tc.template'.


The script `/usr/cvssupport/bugid.verify' is used to evaluate the log message.

#       bugid.verify filename
#  Verify that the log message contains a valid bugid
#  on the first line.
if sed 1q < $1 | grep '^BugId:[ ]*[0-9][0-9]*$' > /dev/null; then
    exit 0
elif sed 1q < $1 | grep '^BugId:[ ]*none$' > /dev/null; then
    # It is okay to allow commits with 'BugId: none',
    # but do not put that text into the real log message.
    grep -v '^BugId:[ ]*none$' > $1.rewrite
    mv $1.rewrite $1
    exit 0
    echo "No BugId found."
    exit 1

The `verifymsg' file contains this line:

^tc     /usr/cvssupport/bugid.verify %l

The `rcsinfo' file contains this line:

^tc     /usr/cvssupport/tc.template

The `config' file contains this line:
