  1. Sync Views should sync branch meta data changes

    Sync views only push and pull pending changesets. However, when working with features like code reviews, new meta data is added to the branches without creating new changesets. In this situation, it is impossible for the user to know which branches have new meta data and they are forced to manually pull each branch to get the changes.

    Besides the user experience issue, this breaks the concept of replication itself in my opinion, since the sync view is not keeping my local repo completely up to date with the remote.

    • filetypes.conf has immediate effect and can be per repository

      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).

      • Pull Requests

        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)

        • Sync, Repos and Workspaces on their own tab

          Hi,

          Since the latest release it's possible to close the tabs in the caption area.

          Great feature but I would like one more enhancement, a non closeable tab (preferably the first tab on the right) that contains non workspace related subtabs like Your Workspaces, Your Repositories Rss Notification and Sync replication (not sure about Shelves).

          This way the workspace related tabs stay cleaner (and smaller).

          • use the .gitignore file if it is present

            Have plastic simply use the .gitignore file if it is present. Now that we support the online git repos like github bitbucket and VSO.

            If you have .gitignore use that methodology and if you have .ignore use that methodology.

            And maybe give user option to generate a .ignore file from a .gitignore.

            • Number of active code reviews

              please, add a number behind the code review menu item which shows the user how many active code reviews are assigned to him.

              Maybe it could even flash up a bit when there are new reviews.

              • Add a context menu to the 'Checking pending changes' window

                There is no context menu available for changed files in the 'Checking pending changes' window. However, there is a similar view in the 'Pending changes' tab of PlasticSCM's main window and a context menu is available there.

                The thing is that the context menu enables you to view changes using a diff tool you prefer (the one set in application preferences). In the window mentioned in the topic there is no such menu at all and you can view changes only using the diff tool embedded inside that window.

                Most of us in our company are used to WinMerge and…

                • Secure code reviews

                  Right now there is no mechanism to prevent users from deleting code reviews (unless I've missed something obvious), which is a problem for what we're trying to do. If nothing else it would be nice to have a "before-rmreview" trigger that we can hook into

                  • Partial file checkin

                    Would you consider adding an option to check in only selected changes in a file? I once saw such option in SourceTree. At first I thought it was useless, but sometimes I actually need to check a file in without certain changes made in it.

                    I think you could add the feature to the diff viewer in Pending Changes. Each modified line could have a check box next to it, checked by default. What do you think?

                    • Exclude identical files from Diff (between selected changesets)

                      When selecting two changesets on two different branches and choosing "Diff selected changesets", the resulting Changeset Diff view can contain identical files (files that do not differ at all between the two changesets). This could happen if the same change has been applied to a file on both branches, without a merge.

                      In this case I suggest that the identical files be hidden from the Diff view. The whole point of a Diff is to see the files that differ, not the ones that don't.

                      (NOTE: In my case, I had loads of identical files due to an import from…

                      • Show unchanged lines only for context in the text diff view

                        Option for the built-in diff window to show only a few (maybe configurable) unchanged lines around each changed line.

                        We have some multi-metabyte files with many thousands of lines and sometimes a few lines change and it is hard to scroll or click move around with such a large file. The buttons "to to next/previous change" are useful, but it is a lot more messy to actually see the diff.

                        See the attached file for a comparison with Araxis merge for an example.

                        In Araxis, we can see more information on the same screen.

                        • Better issue tracker API

                          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…

                            It would be very helpful if there was a means by which certain directories/paths could be moved from 1 repository to another, complete with history.

                              If you are in a branch with some un-submitted files and you don't want to submit them into your branch yet. If would be great to be able to select the files you want and submit them directly into another branch but keep you in your existing branch. We work with not allowing people to switch branches with pending changes so 'Check in to another branch' doesn't work unless we manually switch to allowing you to switch branches. Then once the files have been submitted to another branch you'd then have to switch back to your previous branch ready to…

                              • Add an email notification system to users in Plastic Cloud

                                It would be great if whenever actions are done in Plastic Cloud that all pertaining partys are automatically emailed (with a configuration for this).

                                Example, I create a code review for user A,B,C. Lookup user A,B,C's email and shoot them a notice of the code review. This is a standard feature for other cloud base repos that is super useful. Currently i have to either rely on my teammates telling me they submitted code reviews or have each of them integrate an app into their setup. It would be nice to have a one stop shop for this. : )

                                • provide an increased level of support for the eclipse ide platform.

                                  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.

                                  • Possibility to undo checkout without loosing file content changes

                                    Let the user undo a checkout without loosing the modifications themselves. The result would be a file with status "Changed".
                                    Neither the content nor the file's timestamp should change by this operation.
                                    Currently, undoing a checkout always results in downloading the versioned content.

                                    • VS plugin: Add in-editor diff markers with associated commands

                                      We were using the VisualSVN plugin for Visual Studio before, and we miss the excellent "Quick Diff" feature: https://www.visualsvn.com/visualsvn/features/

                                      This feature replaces/enhances the "Track Changes" markers in the Visual Studio code editor with colored lines (in the left margin), to indicate blocks of lines that are changed relative to the latest changeset (different colors for modified, added, deleted). It also adds commands (revert block, navigate prev/next change block).

                                      There are some other (open source) plugins that offer similar functionality: "Git Diff Margin", "TfsPendingChangesMargin", "HgVS".

                                      • Use "tab mechanism" from Branch Explorer sidebar in all other sidebars

                                        The Branch Explorer "Options" sidebar has its "tabs" in a vertical layout, which works better when there are several tabs. Other sidebars (in the Branches and Changesets views) use horizontal tabs instead. It would make sense to unify these so the same type of sidebar component is used in all these places.

                                        Additionally, I think the "View History" view should have a sidebar as well...
