  1. If you use a console based diff tool such as vimdiff it can cause the GUI problems. It would be nice to be able to set different difftool preferences for the GUI and 'cm diff', possibly with a command line option:

    cm diff --tool=vimdiff

    It might be necessary to give tools names or id's in the GUI preferences to reference from the command line so you can easily configure the arguments.

  4. Develop a JIRA plugin for Jira, to improve visibility.
    Add options to create branches from JIRA and issues from PlasticSCM.
    Embed links to open each other Web Portal.

    In general, a text box in the Jira issue is not enough. The interaction should be smooth.

  6. Provide a mechanism to approve merges into specific branches.
    One option is to use pull requests with an approval mechanism (of one or more required approvals).

    This will allow trace-ability and enforcement of organization rules.
    Linking it to code review will make it even greater.

    (Check out Stash for examples)

  7. 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…

  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.

  9. 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!

  10. 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)

  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.

  13. 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.

  14. I know this was the default behavior a couple of versions ago, and it was extremely advantageous for our team because we tend to have a lot of files (XML data and such) that get changed but we don't intend to preserve those changes.

    We had been in the habit of checking in only our relevant changes, and it's been a big change to our workflow to have to either undo all pending changes first, or deal with the merges that ensue. If there was an option to prefer the old behavior it would be a big help!

  15. It would be a nice feature to allow setting a color for elements.

    Examples:
    - set the label color red to mark it as "important".
    - set the branch color to green to indicate that the branch is the "test branch"

  16. When a changeset is removed the workspace is switching to the parent changeset and all changes get lost.
    I think it is better to keep all changes in the "pending changes", so you do not lose any changes and you can add some more changes.

    It often happens to me that I forget some small changes, so I have to check in again producing a lot of unnecessary changesets.

  17. LOCK a branch so no one can perform a merge or checkin except the one who took the lock.

    Current scenario: Two or more developers are are working on child branches and want to merge back to the parent branch, if both initiate the merge, the first will succeed but the second will have to re-merge again. To avoid this, the developers can send an email, asking all to wait until he finishes the merge...
    Proposed solution: Allow the one to take a lock on the target branch, do the work, and release it. During the lock, others should be…

  18. Usually, I don't need annotation of a whole file (which is really slow for big files); an annotation of a specific line or maybe several lines would be enough.
    New context menu command Annotate this line from Diff/Merge tool would be very helpful.
