Good day GFS & GSM svn developers,
It was discovered that a number of GFS and GSM svn branches were created
incorrectly. The branches in question were not created from a copy of the
respective trunk, using the "svn copy" command, as instructed in numerous
subversion tutorials given over the past years. This resulted in the loss
of merge-info and change history.
Two recent commits were done with branches that were not created through
the correct procedure. This resulted in loss of merge-info for those
updated files and issues with developers syncing their branches with the
*Those with offending branches will be contacted separately and instructed
on actions required to solve this issue.*
*As a reminder to everyone...here is how to properly create a branch:
svn copy FULLTRUNKPATH FULLBRANCHPATH
For further information on creating branches see this GFS Trac wiki page:
*If you are unsure of whether your branches were synced with the trunk
properly please try the following on your working copy:*
1) svn merge --dry-run FULLTRUNKPATH .
(Make note of ".") If you have conflicts feel free to contact your code
manager for help.
2) svn merge FULLTRUNKPATH .
3) svn commit -m "Branch update: INSERT MESSAGE"
More information on merging can be found here:
*If you have any questions DO NOT HESITATE to ask Nicole or Kate for help.*
*It may be Halloween but we don't bite.*
Your friendly code managers,
Kate (GSM) & Nicole (GFS)
