#ifndef FILEATTR_H

/* File containing per-file attributes.  The format of this file is in
   cvs.texinfo but here is a quick summary.  The file contains a
   series of entries:

     {; ATTRNAME = ATTRVAL} <linefeed>

   ENT-TYPE is 'F' for a file.

   ENT-TYPE is 'D', and FILENAME empty, for default attributes.

   Other ENT-TYPE are reserved for future expansion.

   Note that the order of the line is not significant; CVS is free to
   rearrange them at its convenience.

   FIXME: this implementation doesn't handle '\0' in any of the
   fields.  We are encouraged to fix this (by cvs.texinfo).

   By convention, ATTRNAME starting with '_' is for an attribute given
   special meaning by CVS; other ATTRNAMEs are for user-defined attributes
   (or will be, once we add commands to manipulate user-defined attributes).

   Builtin attributes:

   _watched: Present means the file is watched and should be checked out

   _watchers: Users with watches for this file.  Value is
   where WATCHER is a username, and TYPE is edit,unedit,commit separated by
   + (or nothing if none; there is no "none" or "all" keyword).

   _editors: Users editing this file.  Value is
   where EDITOR is a username, and VAL is TIME+HOSTNAME+PATHNAME, where
   TIME is when the "cvs edit" command happened,
   and HOSTNAME and PATHNAME are for the working directory.  */

   by '\0' or ';'.  Return NULL if said file lacks said attribute.

   LIST is in the format


   And we want to put in an attribute with name NAME and value VAL,
   replacing the already-present attribute with name NAME if there is
   one.  Or if VAL is NULL remove attribute NAME.  Return a new
   malloc'd list; don't muck with the one passed in.  If we are removing
   the last attribute return NULL.  LIST can be NULL to mean that we
   started out without any attributes.
