[ANN] FastCST 3.0 (Now w/ meta-data, get, and put)

Hi All,

Just a quick announcement to say that I've put up another release of
FastCST for interested folks to play with:

Fast Change Set Tool (FastCST, pronounced "fascist") is an experimental
changeset tool I'm writing in Ruby. It uses suffix arrays to create
deltas and supports meta-data and simple distribution of changesets.

This 0.3 version supports:

* Full YAML based meta-data for the changesets. Check out for an example.
* A "get" command that will get a changeset based on a meta-data file
and apply to a directory.
- There's an example which let's you move a Ruby 1.8.2 source tree
to the nightly snapshot.
* A "put" command which will log into an FTP site and put a changeset
* Files are MD5 digested before applied to help detect alteration (don't
trust it yet though since someone can just change the meta-data).

The get and put commands deal only with the meta-data file, so they
aren't too cumbersome.

Please play with it if you have time and let me know what you think.

Zed A. Shaw

perhaps you should consider changing the name, it 'sounds' badly.
