Description facilityderek 2007-08-07 10:13:45 UTC
Unfortunately, Where I work we still have to use Visual Source Safe.

We recently updated to Visual Source Safe 2005. Previous versions of VSS inserted vssver.scc files into versioned
directories. These are hidden by a setting in Options -> Advanced Options -> Ide Configuration -> System -> System
Settings -> Ignored files.

VSS 2005 inserts vssver2.scc files. To hide these you just add vssver2\.scc to the existing settings.

I don't know how many users are still using VSS but hiding these files automatically in the ignored files setting would
be nice.

Reassigning to "versioncontrol" ...
Comment 2 Martin Entlicher 2007-08-10 16:09:13 UTC
Can be considered for beta1 as a trivial change after the VCS modules are put to the Update Center.
Comment 3 Martin Entlicher 2007-11-09 18:08:50 UTC
I've changed vssver\\.scc to vssver.?\\.scc so that it matches both old and new variants of vssver.scc:

/shared/data/ccvs/repository/core/src/org/netbeans/core/,v  <--
new revision: 1.91; previous revision: 1.90

new revision: 1.5; previous revision: 1.4

/shared/data/ccvs/repository/openide/masterfs/src/org/netbeans/modules/masterfs/,v  <--
new revision: 1.13; previous revision: 1.12

new revision: 1.6; previous revision: 1.5

Issue still exists in NB 6.0 Release.

The Ignored files setting still reads vssver\.scc

In the last comment: it states I've changed vssver\\.scc to vssver.?\\.scc

Should that read vssver\\.scc to vssver?\\.scc
Comment 5 Martin Entlicher 2007-12-05 10:37:31 UTC
Was fixed in Dev, not in 6.0. It's fixed in post-6.0 development builds.
