Find the person to ‘Blame’ when code break : svn blame October 19, 2007

Posted by sandakith in Open Source, Tooling.

So this is true, try svn blame and blame the person who own the line that breaks the latest code base. This will list the all the line numbers with the code owner of that line who changed it lastly with the revision number. This is really cool stuff and very much usefull.

See the example code chunk from WSO2 WSAS Project with ‘svn blame’.

Is there an api available for it, if commands are not to be used?
And is it possible to get it only with line nos without the owners name?
