  1. Currently, to use a different repository server, you have to run the configuration wizard multiple times.

    It would be much more convenient to be able to open the Plastic SCM tool and click "add new server..." or "select repositories from server..." so that the user can choose where to get a list of repositories (projects) to work with - and start creating workspaces to pull the project down to.

    The following is a scenario I ran into:
    1) I created a local plastic server to replace my personal CVS server for projects that I work on at home. Using the…

  2. "Show selected branches in a new diagram" is a useful way of making sense of a large and complex history but first you have to find the branches to select.

    The obvious way is to use the search field, but this changes the current selection to what if finds, losing you previous ones. It would be better if it just centred and highlighted the item without selecting it.

  3. and make the button, which opens this window more noticeable (both in History and Changesets view), by adding a text label at least.

  5. The explorer plug-in works very well for managing a workspace, however, there is no branch support.

    1) No way to tell what branch the workspace currently has
    2) No way to switch the workspace to a particular branch
    3) No way to merge the current branch into another
    4) No way to merge another branch into the current one
    --there are other branch features available, but these are the ones my team uses the most.

    All of these thing currently require the GUI to perform, but could be done using the Explorer plug-in

  6. It'd be a cool idea to create a github service hook and an accompanying issue tracking extension for Plastic to read issues from there. I don't know Ruby but I could help out with the Issue Tracking extension in plastic!

  8. When running a Diff... between changesets using Plastic GUI (say, when comparing the most recent changeset to the last published build), it would be very useful to be able to copy all new and changed files from the workspace to a specified target directory.

  10. Build an admin tool where users can be activated or deactivated in order to control user licenses in LDAP mode.

    At the moment I do it manually. (Table seid, Column sactive)

  11. When browsing a branch or changeset for items it sometimes would be nice to save a file/folder to some place on the disk.

    Some files belong together and if I want to view or even execute these files I need all of them with correct filenames in the same place.

    Clicking on a item in plastic opens this file with the system standard viewer in a temporary directory. Depending on the file this may not be a good idea! Therefore I need a way to select some items (files/folders) and export them.

  12. Basically a shortcut to take one of the 3 versions (source, base, destination) as a result one.

    Described in more detail in the end of http://www.plasticscm.net/index.php?/topic/1200-exception-during-3-way-merge-when-pasting-big-text/

  13. I came across a blog post about this limitation. If you are using ADO/ADO.net, you should be able to set the Page Size property to 999 - which will in fact return ALL users instead of being limited to 1000 (if you set it at 1000 or above, you will get exactly that many and no more, setting it to less really means "I want them all, but only x at a time")

    Obj.Properties.Item['Page Size'].Value := 950
    where Obj is an ADO Command object (not sure what the .NET equivalent is)

  14. As a developer, I can specify what is the type (text/binary) of file with a given extension. But, I want PlasticSCM to immediately apply these settings to the current workspace (only new files are affected). Also, it would be convenient that a filetypes.conf placed in the root dir of repository to have the same effect for this specific repo, on the top of global settings (as for ignore.conf).

  15. As each branch should have a defined role and may or may not interact with other branches plastic scm needs a workflow management system (I'm inspired by Jira) which allows definitions of branch roles and let's call it "change/information flow" rules.

    This would provide a way to define which branch can be merged into another branch and which can't!

    Each branch then needs a role assigned at creation time. Even here the workflow rules could define which roles may be given to a branch created from another branch wich a given role.

  17. For those relying on external projects or SDKs, an ability to simply point to a public git/svn/etc repository would be great if you simply had to specify a label/release. That way, external dependencies can be handled by the xlink feature.

  18. So DVCS is great but given I write code in lots of places. I would like to be able to use a single id and sync across various servers.

    I use my work domain account at 1 place
    customers domain account,
    Work at home discconected from any LDAP or AD server.

    I don't want to manage the users either. So it would be great if people could just login with their facebook, google, or other OpenID and I could sync using those. just like this site allows facebook or Google. Why not plastic also.

  20. Small new request, it would be nice if the Syn Replication view had the option to remotely create workspaces. I now have to use the commandline and retype a fairly long machine name (full AD one) to create a workspace at a remote machine.

    So it would be nice (and easier with less chance on typing erres) if the Dialog for Add replication repository had the option to just select a server and add by typing just the repository name (or maybe even better have it already filled in with the local one, assuming names will probably match in a…
