OSSP svs is a simple frontend to diff(1) and patch(1). It provides a convenient way for working with changes on textual files if no history tracking and version control is necessary. This is especially the case when having to patch pristine vendor sources for portability or bugfixing reasons.

Release Notes: A convenient "svs status" command that outputs a "cvs update"-style list of files and their status (modification or conflict) was added. *.rej files are now removed during a "svs vi" if a modification was made. The "make uninstall" procedure of the build environment was fixed. When editing a file, svs now looks for a corresponding ".rej" file. If one is found and the editor is Vim, both files are opened. When searching for "*.orig" files, the resulting filename list is now sorted to make sure that patches are deterministically re-produced.
