[WD16] SCM - How do you update a branch from the main project SOLVED

Startbeitrag von Al am 19.05.2011 01:22

Hello All

The SCM doco mentions that:

Quote
Branch modifications are bi-directional. You can apply modifications from the main project to a branch or apply a branch modification to the main project. The project modified is always the project that is open. In the rest of this document, the example used apply a modification from the main project to the branch.


Well the rest of the doco in fact only talks about going from a branch back to the main version. I can't find any way to update a branch from the main project

There is an option to "Retrieve the modifications from a branch" but there is no option to
"Retrieve the modifications from the main project into a branch"

How can this be done ?

I received help with this from Tech Support.
The answer is that the concept of "main" and "branch" are relative to the project that is currently open. Because the help text explicity referred to "Main project" and "Branch Project" I expected the editors to follow the same naming conventions when providing options but this is not the case.

Whichever "branch" project is open becomes the "main" project and every other project, including the actual "main project" are then branches to it. I suppose it was done this way to cope with the recursion possible when branches have branches but I just wish it was described in these terms in the help.

The help text that read : "The project modified is always the project that is open"

Should have read: "The currently open project is considered to be the main project and all other projects are considered to be branches to it. The currently open project will be modified with changes from branch projects"

Regards
Al
