  1. Two folders (or files) with the same name added into different branches independently, cannot be merged in Plastic now.
    It would be priceless in some cases (especially for folders).

  2. The client should automatically update itself. The update shall be downloaded in background and automatically be applied during next start-up.

  3. Please, code reviews on linux are not available on GTK Client, and WEBUI is subpar compared with the new code reviews system.
    Please, be so kind to implement it as linux users are very limited and forced to install a Windows VM only for plastic :(

  4. Make possible to select visible columns in table views such as Changesets, Items, Branches, etc.
    We want to see Attributes and Labels in a Changesets view, but we usually do not care about GUIDs.

  5. "Xlink changes cannot be commented" - that message shows up when you try to comment a change in an xlinked file (in a code review). IMHO it would be much easier if xlinked files could be commented just like other files.

  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. 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…

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  13. I find myself repeatedly typing in a lot of the same comments. I would like to auto populate the the commit comment with what was used to create the branch.

  14. Could you add an option to automatically check/alert on updates of PlasticSCM? (and display the version number somewhere).

    To see if there is a new version (and there are often because you guys seem to work hard ;-), I have to examine the properties of one of the exe files and compare it with the version in the on-line changelog.

  17. Consider the following branches:
    1(root)
    1-1 (branch from 1)
    1-2 (another branch from 1)

    Currently, you can checkout and check-in the file on branch 1-1 and you can also do it on branch 1-2, as long as both checkouts are in their own branch head changeset and not at the same time.

    So when branches 1-1 and 1-2 merges back into the root branch 1, you get a conflict.

    The idea is to have types of files that cannot be merged, never, completely exclusive for all branches, the same way it is done in lock.conf for a per-branch basis.

  18. 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.

  19. As mentioned in the following links, the changeset / branch Diff view from the Plastic GUI can be automatically opened to show a specified changeset or branch. This can be done either via command line / script or (on Windows) by a URL containing a special "Plastic://" protocol:

    http://www.plasticscm.net/index.php?/topic/3061-updated-plastic-urls-to-launch-diff-windows/

    http://codicesoftware.blogspot.com/2012/11/plastic-scm-4110372-release-is-out.html

    This is very handy for automation etc. However, I'd like to see more views available via command line and URL args - Branch Explorer, 2D History, Items, Annotate etc...

  20. The code review system is very basic but I believe a few simple things can make it much more usable. I submit a list of them here: http://www.plasticscm.net/index.php?/topic/2276-suggestions-for-code-review-system
