  1. goto child changeset

    In branch explorer there is a 'goto parent changeset' context menu. A similar one for children, possibly listing multiple branches, would be useful. Navigation is quite difficult in this direction.

      • Repository description

        Add a description property to a repository and add it as a column to the repository browser to allow for a long description to give detailed information about the contents of the repo. Repo names tend to be short and don't always explain what the repo contains, especially when there are 100's of repo's for different projects.

        • Allow update-merge on "Update Workspace" and "Switch"

          Back in old Subversion, the scenario of "Updating to a newer changeset (on the current branch) while there are Pending Changes in the workspace" was handled very smoothly and seldom caused any problems. (Sure, conflicts can arise but they are usually minor since we are on the same branch.)

          I'm aware that it's recommended that each developer works on their own child branch. Nevertheless, this situation comes up, for example when two child branches are being concurrently merged back to the parent. Also, the Plastic team has already put some work into supporting this scenario:

          • Add an option to prevent changing branches when you have added (private) files which are marked as pending adds.

            This would prevent you from adding a file and forgetting to add it to source control before changing branch. This idea here is that you would set Plastic up to discover private files so you can see which files need adding. Any solution files or built data you would put in separate folders which aren't under source control and thus aren't detected by Plastic. This approach prevents you from forgetting to add files, i.e it'll build for you locally but not for others.

            • Auto complete/suggest filenames and/or class types in checkin comments (PlasticSCM client)

              Way back when I still used TortoiseSVN, I really enjoyed the fact that it's commit comment textbox would suggest types and filenames when committing new changes. See the attached image for an example.

              The simplest implementation would be for the client to check the pending changes, compile a list of the filepaths and filenames, and then determine if the current typed word would match one of these list entries. If a word partially matches one of the entries, show a dropdown of these entries to let the user choose or dismiss the entries.

              Just to elaborate, this is not an…

              • Remember splitter heights in "Diff changeset" and "Explore changesets on branch"

                Window sizes for these windows are remembered the next time you open them, but adjusted heights of the splitter panes (comment, changes, diff) are not.

                • automated replication

                  I'm working on a main computer and a laptop for when i'm on the road.
                  When i'm working on my laptop I would like to have it automatically push changes to my other computer or the central server when I check-in a change-set.

                  Also i would like to be able to subscribe to a repo of specific branches so it automatically pulls changesets from the central server or the computer.

                      • Improve vertical ordering in Branch Explorer, make use of hierarchy

                        The default ordering of branches in Branch Explorer could be improved. It should respect and make use of the branch hierarchy, so as not to cross lines unnecessarily.

                        When I have several top-level branches with some child branches each, they are not grouped together vertically in a hierarchically logical order. Instead they seem to be randomly placed (?) leading to a lot of lines crossing each other. (I always enable "Display cross-branch changeset links" which makes this more obvious.)

                        I think child branches should always be displayed below their immediate parent (or sibling if multiple children overlap in time).

                        • Keep typed comment when closing checkin dialog without commit.

                          Sometimes i type comment for a checkin but then discover some issues in the list of files that force me to close the dialog (loosing the already typed comments).

                          The current woraround is to open notepad and copy the comment into it for later use. But that is rather clumsy.

                          So request is that when you close the commit dialog without commit the typed comment is added to the dropdown list of previous comments (or is just restored when the dialog is re-opened for the same workspace).

                          • Add support for namespace in "find branch" command

                            Currently, finding a branch by namespace is not possible. Even worse, [find branch where name = 'main'] returns 1 branch, but [find branch where name = '/main'] returns none!

                            Please add full namespace support so we can find branches by complete name, such as [find branch where name = '/main/task001/subtask_1'].

                            This request originates from the following forum post:

                            • Add the ability to tag repositories

                              Similar to the request to group workspaces and repositories (https://plasticscm.uservoice.com/forums/15467-general/suggestions/2772036-group-workspaces-and-repositories) but not quite the same.
                              Using submodules to group repos limits you to a single classification of a repository. Ideally you are able to tag a repository with several keywords like you do on a forum or an article. This would allow us to tag a repository with 'real-time control' or 'imaging algorithm' but also tag it with a product name that uses it or the programming language that it is written in.
                              This would necessitate a new repository view in the client where instead of a list…

                                  • Add progress bars to Merging / Save revision as windows.

                                    Save revision as freezes the entire Plastic SCM client while it downloads the file from the server and saves it on disk. This unacceptable, especially for big files.

                                    Progress bars must be added to Merging / Save revision as windows so users can see, well, the progress of the operation, and not wonder did it get stuck or something. Especially for people with slow internet connections.

                                    • Integrate the Repository configuration (plastic configuration wizard) with the Plastic UI.

                                      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…

                                      • Update Office Plugin

                                        Currently, the Plastic SCM installer provides an option to include plugins for various IDEs as well as Office.

                                        The Office Plugin support is provided for 2003, 2007, and 2010. Noting that the year is 2016, and that two releases of Office have occurred since then, the plugin should be updated to work with the latest versions.

                                        Additionally, the Office Plugin doesn't have quite the same "polish" and "style" that the rest of Plastic has when running on Windows, so it could use some touching up.

                                        Finally, if this isn't a priority - and since it really exists to integrate with…

                                        • Improve performance of LDAP/AD mapping from SID to uid (or even real name)

                                          We are a large corporation with an LDAP (Active Directory) with 10's of 1000's of entries in the LDAP/AD server.
                                          Today, I think one of the biggest performance issues with Plastic SCM is the VERY large number of requests to LDAP to lookup SID to be able to display uid. Finding a way to speed up this operation would, I believe, be a boost to performance in many operations in Plastic SCM (especially the GUI?). Item view, changeset properties, and annotate history would improve just to name a few.
                                          I first thought of this problem when asking myself why the…
