Dist::Zilla::Plugin::SVK::Commit - commit dirty files


version 0.10


In your dist.ini:

    changelog = Changes      ; this is the default


Once the release is done, this plugin will record this fact in svk by committing changelog and dist.ini. The commit message will be taken from the changelog for this release. It will include lines between the current version and timestamp and the next non-indented line.

The plugin accepts the following options:

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

  • allow_dirty - a file that will be checked in if it is locally modified. This option may appear multiple times. The default list is dist.ini and the changelog file given by changelog.

  • commit_msg - the commit message to use. defaults to v%v%n%n%c, meaning the version number and the list of changes.

You can use the following codes in commit_msg:


The list of changes in the just-released version (read from changelog).


The current date. You can use any CLDR format supported by DateTime. A bare %d means %{dd-MMM-yyyy}d.


a newline


the distribution name


the distribution version



This method returns the commit message. The default implementation reads the Changes file to get the list of changes in the just-released version.
