VCI 0.7.1

Thanks to the Bugzilla VCS Extension, interest in VCI has really been picking up lately, and so has development. I just released VCI 0.7.1. The biggest feature of 0.7.1 is that every Commit object now has a "uuid" accessor--a way of uniquely identifying a Commit, universally (across all Repositories and Projects), even if the VCS does not normally provide such a mechanism. This makes it easy to tell if two different Commit objects are actually the "same" commit. (For example, if you have two branches with very similar histories, the uuid should help tell you which commits in those two branches are in fact identical.)
