Performs queries on the contents of a CVS archive
- " Bonsai was a web-based CVS repository browser. Since core Mozilla development has moved from CVS to Mercurial, Bonsai was shut down in 2015 (see bug 1157907). "
'Bonsai' lets you perform queries on the contents of a CVS archive. You can get a list of checkins, and see what checkins have been made by a given person, on a given branch, or in given time. It also includes tools for sxamining checkin logs and comments, doing diffs between various versions of a file, and finding out who is responsible for changing a particular line of code ("cvsblame"). It is built to run against CVS using Perl, MySQL, and your favorite webserver to display checkin history, log information, diffs, and other assorted pieces of information in easy to parse HTML.
