PROGRAM:

NAME


aegis change owner - set change owner

SYNOPSIS


aegis -Change_Owner change-number user-name [ option... ]
aegis -Change_Owner -Help
aegis -Change_Owner -VERSion

DESCRIPTION


The aegis -Change_Owner command is used to reassign a change from one developer to
another.

A new development directory is created for the change in the new developers default area
(see aedb(1) for more information) and the change files are copied across. Derived files
are ignored, so a new build will be required. The old development directory will be
deleted.

This command must be performed by a project administrator, and the new assignee must be a
developer.

Warning: capricious use of this command will alienate developers very rapidly.

Notification
This command mimics many of the actions of the aebdu(1) and aedb(1) command. In
particular, it invokes the develop_begin_undo_command and develop_begin_command of the
project config file. See aepconf(5) for more information.

Development Directory Location
Please Note: Aegis also consults the underlying file system, to determine its notion of
maximum file size. Where the file system's maximum file size is less than
maximum_filename_length, the filesystem wins. This can happen, for example, when you are
using the Linux UMSDOS file system, or when you have an NFS mounted an ancient V7
filesystem. Setting maximum_filename_length to 255 in these cases does not alter the
fact that the underlying file systems limits are far smaller (12 and 14, respectively).

If your development directories (or your whole project) is on filesystems with filename
limitations, or a portion of the heterogeneous builds take place in such an environment,
it helps to tell Aegis what they are (using the project config file's fields) so that you
don't run into the situation where the project builds on the more permissive
environments, but fails with mysterious errors in the more limited environments.

If your development directories are routinely on a Linux UMSDOS filesystem, you would
probably be better off setting dos_filename_required = true, and also changing the
development_directory_template field. Heterogeneous development with various Windows
environments may also require this.

OPTIONS


The following options are understood:

-Change number
This option may be used to specify a particular change within a project. See
aegis(1) for a complete description of this option.

-DIRectory path
This option may be used to specify which directory is to be used. It is an error
if the current user does not have appropriate permissions to create the directory
path given. This must be an absolute path.

Caution: If you are using an automounter do not use `pwd` to make an absolute
path, it usually gives the wrong answer.

-Help
This option may be used to obtain more information about how to use the aegis
program.

-Interactive
Specify that aegis should ask the user for confirmation before deleting each
file. Answer the question yes to delete the file, or no to keep the file. You
can also answer all to delete the file and all that follow, or none to keep the
file and all that follow.

Defaults to the user's delete_file_preference if not specified, see aeuconf(5)
for more information.

If aegis is running in the background, the question will not be asked, and the
files will be deleted.

-Keep
This option may be used to retain files and/or directories usually deleted or
replaced by the command. Defaults to the user's delete_file_preference if not
specified, see aeuconf(5) for more information.

-No_Keep
This option may be used to ensure that the files and/or directories are deleted
or replaced by the command. Defaults to the user's delete_file_preference if not
specified, see aeuconf(5) for more information.

-List
This option may be used to obtain a list of suitable subjects for this command.
The list may be more general than expected.

-Project name
This option may be used to select the project of interest. When no -Project
option is specified, the AEGIS_PROJECT environment variable is consulted. If
that does not exist, the user's $HOME/.aegisrc file is examined for a default
project field (see aeuconf(5) for more information). If that does not exist,
when the user is only working on changes within a single project, the project
name defaults to that project. Otherwise, it is an error.

-REAson text
This option may be used to attach a comment to the change history generated by
this command. You will need to use quotes to insulate the spaces from the shell.

-TERse
This option may be used to cause listings to produce the bare minimum of
information. It is usually useful for shell scripts.

-User name
This option is used to specify the user who is to develop the change.

-Verbose
This option may be used to cause aegis to produce more output. By default aegis
only produces output on errors. When used with the -List option this option
causes column headings to be added.

-Wait This option may be used to require Aegis commands to wait for access locks, if
they cannot be obtained immediately. Defaults to the user's lock_wait_preference
if not specified, see aeuconf(5) for more information.

-No_Wait
This option may be used to require Aegis commands to emit a fatal error if access
locks cannot be obtained immediately. Defaults to the user's
lock_wait_preference if not specified, see aeuconf(5) for more information.

See also aegis(1) for options common to all aegis commands.

All options may be abbreviated; the abbreviation is documented as the upper case letters,
all lower case letters and underscores (_) are optional. You must use consecutive
sequences of optional letters.

All options are case insensitive, you may type them in upper case or lower case or a
combination of both, case is not important.

For example: the arguments "-project, "-PROJ" and "-p" are all interpreted to mean the
-Project option. The argument "-prj" will not be understood, because consecutive
optional characters were not supplied.

Options and other command line arguments may be mixed arbitrarily on the command line,
after the function selectors.

The GNU long option names are understood. Since all option names for aegis are long,
this means ignoring the extra leading '-'. The "--option=value" convention is also
understood.

RECOMMENDED ALIAS


The recommended alias for this command is
csh% alias aechown 'aegis -chown \!* -v'
sh$ aechown(){aegis -chown "$@" -v}

ERRORS


It is an error if the user issuing the command is not a project administrator.
It is an error if the change is not in the being developed state.
It is an error if the user given is not a developer.

EXIT STATUS


The aegis command will exit with a status of 1 on any error. The aegis command will only
exit with a status of 0 if there are no errors.

ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES


See aegis(1) for a list of environment variables which may affect this command. See
aepconf(5) for the project configuration file's project_specific field for how to set
environment variables for all commands executed by Aegis.
