This looks *really* easy on the bcfg2 side. Waiting for answer to query regarding "fossil info" / getting version information on checked-out files from the fossil-users list:

Mailing list thread now has a bunch of responses. I think the most efficient way of doing this, while covering all cases, is going to be:

  1. At start, run "fossil extra", which will give a list of files not checked in, like:

And put into python data structure.

  1. At start, run "fossil changes", which will give a list of checked in but changed files, like:
    EDITED   card/casper-rw/
    EDITED   doc/fsf-membercard.leo

And put into python data structure.

  1. On each file, run "fossil test-sha1sum fqfn", which will give sha1sum of any file, no matter repo status, like:
    $ fossil test-sha1sum rms-copyright_versus_community_in_the_age_of_computer_networks.spx
    0c9d3cd1e59871f52c7eb4fff0ea573943423771  rms-copyright_versus_community_in_the_age_of_computer_networks.spx
  1. If file name is not in either of the data structures, just return the sha1sum value.
  1. If file name is in extra, return sha1sum with prefix "EXTRA-"
  1. If file name is in changes, return sha1sum with prefix of first piece of text, such as "EDITED-"

Turns out this was even easier than I was thinking - Bcfg2 just gets the version for the entire checkout, not per-file versions; I guess it's the sys admin's job to make sure edits/additions are never made to the repository being used :-)

Initial version committed in r5457 - testing tomorrow night...

I think this is working and doc'ed in version control in r5462 and later. Also updated wiki.
