Re: [4diac-dev] Version Control for 4diac Projects (was: Reworking Deployment/Download)


voer the last days I spent some furhter time think ing on how the
multi-user situation could be improved. Here I noticed that not
dedicating one application per user but dedicating a subapp for each
user/submodule or component would be better. Here the mapping could be
rather fixed and each user would work on their subapplication. I think
here git could auto-merge rather easily. What do you think?

Also I think for 1.10 we should start and package EGit as part of
4diac-ide. Even if we are not haveing dedicated merge tools on the
graphical layouts it could help users managing their projects.
