  • Committing into multiple KDE branches

    By on February 7, 2008

    A while ago, KDE branched the 4.0.x releases into their own subversion branch directory. This reminded me that I’ve been using a little script for a while which comes in quite handy when you want to commit a patch to multiple branches. The script is called ‘ilc’ (which originally...
