  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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…

  6. In Perforce, you can branch an individual file to a new name, in a sense copying it - including history.
    This allows future trackback of changes through the file all the way to original files.

    Use case:
    Re-factor of source file to separate into multiple files.

  9. To avoid mistakenly adding multiple xlink targets to the same source when creating sync views and to make sync view creation to repos with xlinks easier I suggest that the sync view editor should be "target" centric, not "source" centric:

    I click add new sync view.
    Instead of clicking add new source as I am supposed to now, I click "add new target".
    I choose the target on a target server.
    Plastic detects that I already have a repo with the same name on my source server (or use some other similarity measure as I have suggested above) and ask…

  10. 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.

  12. 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…

  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. in the branch explorer, have the ability to specify a replication source, instead of having to pull a branch from a source before it showing up in the list.
    This way it would be easy to add all the local developer repos as replication sources to a new team members BrEx in a distributed scenario, without having to pull something from every local developer repo.

  15. 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.

  17. 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 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.

  20. Show a list of all files before you add them to the source control. sometimes i need to keep a file back for some reason and add it some time later.
    Also the add tree to sc action is very opaque. it doesn't even create a new changeset!!! i never know which files i realy added.
