2011/12/6 Tomasz Zarna <tzarna@xxxxxxxxx <mailto:tzarna@xxxxxxxxx>> Hi, I've just noticed http://egit.eclipse.org/r/#change,4727 which looks to me like a dupe of http://egit.eclipse.org/r/#change,4718. It's not the first change I need to abandon, because a committer has created a similar change some time later and merged it . Is this part of the process? It's starting be really frustrating. I'm fine to give away the change to someone else, but I'm getting tired of looking for the dupes. no, this shouldn't be part of the process, also it's not in our interest to frustrate nice contributors by creating dupes, I think there is enough work around for everybody who wants to help bringing the project forward. I think this is caused by unfortunate coincidence and a long list of changes pending in review.
We made these changes close-in-time, which may be the reason I didn't notice your change. I did it for only for testing http://egit.eclipse.org/r/#change,4726 , and then it felt natural to push it, forgetting that you already had pushed a similar change. I abandoned that change now and pushed it with a fix and the attribution to you if that's ok and targeted it for stable-1.2. For simple changed I don't think we can guarantee this won't happen again. We do need to get the change list shorter. -- robin
