Possible feature request [message #64428] Mon, 19 January 2009 16:51 Go to next message

I use Mylyn a lot to help me manage CVS commits when working on multiple
tasks simultaneously. I love that I can easily distinguish the various
pending changes in the Synchronize view. However, there is one thing
that would be eve more help; before creating an enhancement request I
wanted to mention it here to see if perhaps it already exists and I've
overlooked it.
It is often the case that multiple tasks will have overlap in the files
that they touch. It would be very nice, whenever I change a file in a
context, if Mylyn noticed that the file was already changed as part of
another context and alert me to that fact. Either immediately or in the
synchronize view somehow).

In a perfect world, Mylyn could even keep the changes separate so that I
could actually commit the changes for one context without the chagnes
for the other context, but I realize that would involve some pretty
sophisticated conflict detection and resolution and is likely not realistic.

Any thoughts?

Eric

I sometimes noticed that when trying to commit a file (or a set of
files) modified both within the context of a task and within the context
of another, Mylyn would add the commit template of both tasks in the
commit message. So, in some way, Mylyn "knows" that the files were
modified within the context of more than one task, however I think that,
as of now, there are some limits on how the Synchronize view and the
compare eidtor work to highlight better when there are "overlapping"
changes...

I don't have any insight into the workings of Mylyn (not being a Java
programmer), but I would also appreciate some sort of treatment for the
case that Eric described.

There are times when I don't want to commit changes made from another
task. To at least *inform* the user about this situation is a good
first step. Perhaps the Mylyn wizards can even take it a little farther
to help us manage this issue without, as Eric stated, expecting too much
in the regards of conflict resolution.
