;;; Commentary:

;;; Todo:
;; - Some methods need to be updated to match the current vc.el.
;;     - rename "version" -> "revision"
;;     - some methods need to take a fileset as a parameter instead of a
;;       single file.

;;; Code:

(require 'url)
(require 'url-dav)

;;; Required functions for a vc backend
(defun vc-dav-registered (url)
  "Return t if URL is registered with a DAV aware server."
  (url-dav-vc-registered url))

(defun vc-dav-state (url)
  "Return the current version control state of URL.
For a list of possible values, see `vc-state'."
  ;; Things we can support for WebDAV
  ;; up-to-date - use lockdiscovery
  ;; edited     - check for an active lock by us
  ;; USER       - use lockdiscovery + owner
  ;; These don't make sense for WebDAV
  ;; needs-patch
  ;; needs-merge
  ;; unlocked-changes
  (let ((locks (url-dav-active-locks url)))
     ((null locks) 'up-to-date)
     ((assoc url locks)
      ;; SOMEBODY has a lock... let's find out who.
      (setq locks (cdr (assoc url locks)))
      (if (rassoc url-dav-lock-identifier locks)
	  ;; _WE_ have a lock
	(cdr (car locks)))))))

(defun vc-dav-checkout-model (url)
  "Indicate whether URL needs to be \"checked out\" before it can be edited.
See `vc-checkout-model' for a list of possible values."
  ;; The only thing we can support with webdav is 'locking

;; This should figure out the version # of the file somehow.  What is
;; the most appropriate property in WebDAV to look at for this?
(defun vc-dav-workfile-version (url)
  "Return the current workfile version of URL."

(defun vc-dav-register (url &optional rev comment)
  "Register URL in the DAV backend."
  ;; Do we need to do anything here?  FIXME?

(defun vc-dav-checkin (url rev comment)
  "Commit changes in URL to WebDAV.
If REV is non-nil, that should become the new revision number.
COMMENT is used as a check-in comment."
  ;; This should PUT the resource and release any locks that we hold.

(defun vc-dav-checkout (url &optional editable rev destfile)
  "Check out revision REV of URL into the working area.

If EDITABLE is non-nil URL should be writable by the user and if
locking is used for URL, a lock should also be set.

If REV is non-nil, that is the revision to check out.  If REV is the
empty string, that means to check ou tht ehead of the trunk.

If optional arg DESTFILE is given, it is an alternate filename to
write the contents to.
  ;; This should LOCK the resource.

(defun vc-dav-revert (url &optional contents-done)
  "Revert URL back to the current workfile version.

If optional arg CONTENTS-DONE is non-nil, then the contents of FILE
have already been reverted from a version backup, and this function
only needs to update the status of URL within the backend.
  ;; Should do a GET if !contents_done
  ;; Should UNLOCK the file.

(defun vc-dav-print-log (url)
  "Insert the revision log of URL into the *vc* buffer."

(defun vc-dav-diff (url &optional rev1 rev2)
  "Insert the diff for URL into the *vc-diff* buffer.
If REV1 and REV2 are non-nil report differences from REV1 to REV2.
If REV1 is nil, use the current workfile version as the older version.
If REV2 is nil, use the current workfile contents as the nwer version.

It should return a status of either 0 (no differences found), or
1 (either non-empty diff or the diff is run asynchronously).
  ;; We should do this asynchronously...
  ;; How would we do it at all, that is the question!

;;; Optional functions
;; Should be faster than vc-dav-state - but how?
(defun vc-dav-state-heuristic (url)
  "Estimate the version control state of URL at visiting time."
  (vc-dav-state url))

;; This should use url-dav-get-properties with a depth of `1' to get
;; all the properties.
(defun vc-dav-dir-state (url)
  "find the version control state of all files in DIR in a fast way."

(defun vc-dav-workfile-unchanged-p (url)
  "Return non-nil if URL is unchanged from its current workfile version."
  ;; Probably impossible with webdav

(defun vc-dav-responsible-p (url)
  "Return non-nil if DAV considers itself `responsible' for URL."
  ;; Check for DAV support on the web server.

(defun vc-dav-could-register (url)
  "Return non-nil if URL could be registered under this backend."
  ;; Check for DAV support on the web server.

;;; Unimplemented functions
;; vc-dav-latest-on-branch-p(URL)
;;    Return non-nil if the current workfile version of FILE is the
;;    latest on its branch.  There are no branches in webdav yet.
;; vc-dav-mode-line-string(url)
;;    Return a dav-specific mode line string for URL. Are there any
;;    specific states that we want exposed?
;; vc-dav-dired-state-info(url)
;;    Translate the `vc-state' property of URL into a string that can
;;    be used in a vc-dired buffer.  Are there any extra states that
;;    we want exposed?
;; vc-dav-receive-file(url rev)
;;    Let this backend `receive' a file that is already registered
;;    under another backend.  The default just calls `register', which
;;    should be sufficient for WebDAV.
;; vc-dav-unregister(url)
;;    Unregister URL.  Not possible with WebDAV, other than by
;;    deleting the resource.
