Commenting xlink changes in code review
"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.

Hi folks. I haven't seen any from a quick search - is there any update to this feature ?
I'd be keen to hear of any updates on this as well. I know you guys are currently focussing on the code review aspect of your software, and I hope this issue can be looked at. Cheers
I wanted to know if there is currently a solution to this issue. We have x-linked projects in order to pull together our final product, however, this shortcoming with Plastic doesnt allow us to evolve the code review process via our SCM.
I think I just came up against this as well...
Am I understanding correctly that I can create a Code Review for a file that is under an xlink, but then I cannot comment on it?
I'm just testing out the Code Review, and I'm not 100% sure how I'm meant to be using it if that is the case...
Yes, you're right. We have to work on a major rewrite of the code review system, adding extra features, making it more usable... and supporting the review of xlinked revisions :-S
