Dist::Zilla::Plugin::SVK::Check - check your svk repository before releasing


version 0.10


In your dist.ini:

    allow_dirty = dist.ini
    allow_dirty = README
    changelog = Changes      ; this is the default


This plugin checks that svk is in a clean state before releasing. The following checks are performed before releasing:

  • there should be no unversioned files in the working copy

  • the working copy should be without local modifications. The files listed in allow_dirty can be modified locally, though.

If those conditions are not met, the plugin will die, and the release will thus be aborted. This lets you fix the problems before continuing.

The plugin accepts the following options:

  • changelog - the name of your changelog file. defaults to Changes.

  • allow_dirty - a file that is allowed to have local modifications. This option may appear multiple times. The default list is dist.ini and the changelog file given by changelog. You can use allow_dirty = to prohibit all local modifications.
