PROGRAM:

NAME


aelock - take a lock while a command runs

SYNOPSIS


aelock [ option... ] command
aelock -Help
aelock -VERSion

DESCRIPTION


The aelock" command is used to take a project lock while a command runs. This may be
used to ensure that the project state is stable while it is being backed up.

The named command is looked for as an attribute called aelock:command within the
project_specific field of the project configuration file.

The command is then passed through the usual aesub(5) substitutions before being
executed. The command is executed as the project owner. If the command returns with a
non-zero exit status, the aelock(1) command will return an exit status of one.

Security Issues
This command is a potential security problem. Because it takes a read-only lock of all
active branches and changes in a project, from the trunk down, misuse of this command is
a potential denial of service attack. Thus, this command is limited to project
administrators only.

This command could have been designed to take an arbitrary command to execute, like
sudo(1), but this would have granted users, even project administrators, more privileges
than usual. For this reason, the command is held in a source controlled, fully reviewed
project configuration file, and is simply indicated by name.

The command is run as the project owner, not the executing user. It has full write
access (that's the way Unix permissions work). Like aeb(1), this means it can wreak
havoc on the project baseline and meta-data. Use with extreme care.

OPTIONS


The following options are understood:

-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.

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

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 aelock are long,
this means ignoring the extra leading '-'. The "--option=value" convention is also
understood.

EXIT STATUS


The aelock command will exit with a status of 1 on any error. The aelock 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.
