Hello Peter,

in fact, I think it was always the case, but several aspects of it are
poorly documented in the Fossil manual. For example, you could always
use symbolic tags in any place where a changeset ID was expected, but
figuring that out required a look into Fossil's own source code or
trial and error.

Anyway, I have updated the wiki page at
with instructions how Fossil can be set up analogously to the other
VCSs mentioned. I hope this makes the lives of future egg author
generations easier ;-)

Good to know, thanks for the quick fix :-)


When C++ is your hammer, every problem looks like your thumb.
