reposurgeon is a tool for editing version control repository history. It enables risky operations that version control systems don't want to let you do, such as editing past comments and metadata and removing commits. It works with any version control system that can export and import git fast-import streams, including git, hg, and bzr. It can also read Subversion dump files directly and can thus be used to script production of very high-quality conversions from Subversion to any supported DVCS.
Release Notes: svnpull has been renamed "repopuller" in anticipation of pulling CVS repositories. This release adds repodiffer, a tool to report diffs between histories. Fossil-IDs are now dumped in pre-commit comments. The "changed" modifier to mailbox_in now dumps a minimal set of updates used. When reading svn repositories, .cvsignore files are lifted to .gitignores. svn's default ignore-pattern behavior is emulated in translations.

Many project are mirrored worldwide. Mirmon helps in monitoring these mirrors. In a concise graphic format, mirmon shows each site's history of the last two weeks, making it easy to spot stale or dead mirrors. Mirmon quietly probes a subset of the sites in a given list, writes the results in the "state" file, and generates a Web page with the results. The package includes a Perl module called Mirmon.pm; this makes it easy to write applications related to mirmon.
Release Notes: With the option "always_get region ...", you can now specify which mirrors in certain regions must be probed in every mirmon run (intended for fake regions like Master, Tier1, etc.).
