  1. 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).

  2. 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.

  3. I currently have a login for downloading Plastic SCM. I have another login for the community forum, and I have a third login for this site.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  7. 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…

  8. It would be great if I could save a compairing to a file and view it later again.

    Use case: I compaire to branches with a lot of changes. I will need some time to do this and want to do it later.

    Or: I want to show a compair/diff to somebody.

  10. Here are a few ideas for an improved issue tracker API. These suggestions were first posted in the forum 05 December 2011.

    Create branch from ticket
    I was surprised that I could not create a branch from a list of tickets. Instead I have to use a branch name convension to link my branch to a ticket. It should be trivial to extend the extension API with a "load tickets" method and present the list of tickets when creating a branch. How to select the tickets to be shown could be a matter of extension configuration. This could be made…

  11. When different branches are selected, the custom extension task information is updated in the options pane. However, when changesets are selected, the pane doesn't update. It just leaves whatever information had been in there. Even if the changeset is on a different pane.

  12. I would like to see a way to group workspaces (and repositories) in order to make the list more readable.

    As i use the model one workspace for a project or component, i got to many for a readable list.

    Tagging them with a keyword and show them as a tree would make it easier to find workspaces.

  13. It happens from time to time that you think you are working on some branch when actually you are on another.

    What I usually do in such a scenario is:
    1. check in on wrong branch.
    2. switch to correct branch.
    3. cherry pick from wrong to correct branch.
    4. copy the merged file(s)
    5. delete new change set created on correct branch created by cherrypick.
    6. copy the files back to the workspace (or just paste from clipboard if it was a single file).
    7. check in the changes (now properly set in the correct branch).
    8. delete the…

  14. Right now the preferences for diff and merge for external tools has a help modal dialog that is difficult to work with. Building the command line is repetition of modify and click on the help to make sure things are being typed correctly.

    Suggest that instead it's a drop down dialog that populates the variable into the edit box as selected.

  15. Basically the visual studio plugin for PlasticSCM is very powerful, however the majorly popular Eclipse IDE open source platform plugin is very very limited. I'd like to see an increased level of support for this platform as I'm sure many others would as well.

  18. need to set mouse capture when scrolling in source diff window. Otherwise if your mouse moves outside the scrollbar (most likely horizontally), it stops scrolling, and you need to go back and click and drag to scroll.

  19. I would like to see an option that scans the database for corruption or inconsitencies. Now i have to rely on the gui to crash or bahave strange to see that there is something wrong.

    A periodically scheduled job, a short report and a big green light that everything is OK would be good for my trust in the plasticscm.

  20. There might be some use-cases out there for not wanting to do this, When I merge one branch into another branch, if I make a change in between finishing the merging and checking in my changes, that change becomes very difficult to trace as to when it happened. If that change breaks something it becomes nasty to track it down and then revert it.

    There are probably use-cases where people wouldn't want that behavior but I'd like to be prompted to go to pending changes and check-in my merge once it's finished.
