I suspect user error, but I don't know what I'm doing wrong. I have automatic changeset management turned on in my preferences. If I activate a task from a project that's linked with an SVN repository, open a file, make a change, and save it, I see the change in the Synchronize view, but it's not associated with any changeset (none are created). I can right-click on it and manually assign it to a new changeset, but by itself it's not creating one.

Since it's all automagic, I'm not sure how to troubleshoot this. Any tips?

Are you closing the editor? That removes the file from the changeset.

This is not true. If you close the editor, the file is removed from the
current context, but NOT from the changeset.

Either way, no, I'm not. Smile

Is there some delay before a changeset is created and a change becomes part of it? I've tried letting things settle for several minutes, changing multiple files thinking maybe one wasn't enough...nothing seems to be doing it.

Oh, and I should note that I also have "Show changesets" enabled on the Synchronize view. I've tried fiddling with it, turning it off and back on. Nothing.

I found changeset feature to be buggy or perhaps not well thought through. See my earlier post for details. Don't yet know if any of the issues were addressed in 3.2.2.

Well, it's strange. It works for me except sometimes in the following cases:
- when you delete a file, it often goes to "no change set" instead of
the current one
- when you do a refactor or an action that causes indirect modifications
to other files, sometimes some of those files fall to "no change set"
instead of the current one

Maybe your problem is Subclipse? Maybe you have to install some kind of
Mylyn-integration for it?
I'm working with CVS.

I sometimes have to switch between changeset presentation mode to Java and back to fix incorrect placement - there seem to be a refresh issue.

Those were the magic words. I wasn't aware of it until you said this and I went searching, but it turns out the Tigris Subclipse 1.6 update site (http://subclipse.tigris.org/update_1.6.x) offers a package called "Subclipse Integration for Mylyn 3.x." I installed version 3.0.0 of this package and now it's working.

For some reason I had to go into my prefs and turn off automatic changeset management, apply settings, and then turn it back on. As soon as I did that it started working.

Thank you so much!

I am sorry for not suggesting that. In your original email I read this:

"Mylyn Team Support is installed"

and for some reason I read it as that you had installed the
Subclipse/Mylyn integration. This integration should also cause
references to tasks within your log messages in the History view to
open in Mylyn.

Glad it is working.

That actually doesn't work, but I suspect that's a failing of my repository connector. I use Redmine, and the plugins for that are pretty young and not yet very robust.

However it is writing my commit comments for me automatically, which is nice.

In your project properties, Mylyn contributes a page that lets you
associate the project with a Task Repository. Try that. Also, I think
it only works if you do Show History from your working copy (as opposed
to from the SVN Repositories view).

After doing that it still wasn't working, but it might have been because of the formatting style I was using in my commit comments. I would write:

Redmine 1234 - some commit comment

Mylyn is writing:

task 1234: some commit comment (which is the task description)

For tasks that I let it write the commit comment for, it's able to open the corresponding task from history.

Thanks again...

I don't really see a need to do that, since what it's doing now already works. It's only the hand-written comments I created before I got changesets working that aren't linked to a task. When Mylyn creates the commit message, everything works fine. I have no complaint. Smile

Are you closing the editor? That removes the file from the changeset.
