Description Richard Gregor 2003-10-17 09:03:07 UTC
The project settings are versioned by versioning
the project file. In the UI, updating, adding and
committing to VCS must always distinguish between
the source data and the project file (presented as
project settings). In other words, the user must
be able to handle them separately -- e.g. through
different commands in menus. But there must be
also a clear default way to manipulate the whole
project consistently to avoid problems with
different versions of the project settings and
project contents.

Reassigning vcscore issues to versioncontrol->vcscore.
Comment 2 raelianer 2007-03-27 00:13:19 UTC
I would like an option for the project where the user can choose if the project
settings are versioned or not. I started a project at and I
think that users who might want to participate do not need the project settings
of netbeans, if they do not use it. So I want the option that only the source
files (or maybe the testfiles, too) are versioned. The implementation could be
like this: the user right-clicks on a folder->subversion-> and here he could
coose "include this folder" or "exclude this folder". If he would right-click
the project folder, it could look like folder->subversion-> "include project
with project settings" and "include project without project settings".
Or / and these functionality should be avaible during the commit-process. But it
would be really useful.
