Somehow I missed this when it was first posted.
Ideally we'd like to see people using the CVSAPI for things like this, it's very powerful and is the same API as we use for writing to databases ourselves so therefore is furture compatible.
Since audit was in 2.5.01 and since CVSNT audit in 2.5.03 does not support Oracle (2.5.04 does) I find the supplied program a little odd, but great to see people extending CVSNT.
I know there has been some complaint before that the CVSAPI is difficult to call from Delphi, but if making it easier to call will result in more contributions then I think there is some work that could be done there. The two ways forward would be either:#
* a 'standard c' interface - same as the Win32 API uses
* a COM intergace
Does anyone know if either of these would help? Would someone like to volunteer to try and port the above Delphi code to use CVSAPI with assistance from me at using the API with CVSNT 2.5.05?
