Xlinks and branch per task in a DVCS environment.I’m going to tell how we use the Xlinks down here at the Plastic SCM dev team combined with replication.
No surprises if I tell you we use Plastic SCM to handle the plastic development :)
Yes, you know, eating our own’s dog food and all that.
This screenshot is coming from my laptop, and I have a server (using SQLite backend) installed on it, and then I push/pull changes from the central.
We’ve 5 main directories and each of them is pointing to a different repository.
Pulling branchesOk, now, as I said I work replicated without direct conn to the central server. So, considering a single task I need to pull can have like 3 associated branches on 3 different repositories… how do I manage to make the replication process simple?
Look, I have a sync view defined with all the sources (on localhost) and destinations (on Diana). So I update everything, then filter by the branch I want to pull (or push), multiselect on the different repos, and click on “pull branch”.
