Description Richard Gregor 2003-10-17 09:23:46 UTC
All relevant VCS commands should be available for
files and folders in the project files view.

For the project logical view, we have found
serious conceptual implications of the current
design that makes the availability of VCS
operations on logical objects undefined and hard
to implement. There is no reliable way to get
files for logical objects and provide VCS status
information for presentation -- without making all
views care about versioning explicitly somehow.
The logical view concept is intended to provide
various project views fitting best to given
project type, but is not suitable for combining
more kinds of information in one view (e.g.
logical structure + versioning info). A special
versioning view fits best into this concept.
Theoretically it could be available in each
project under a dedicated node, but it would be
probably superfluous if there is already a
separate files view available. Alternatively we
could also provide special VCS view tab showing
files and integrating also the versioning
explorer, but we believe the integration with the
files view is quite sufficient.

So for the first release, the project logical view
will not be VCS-supported on individual objects.
Just the main project and portfolio nodes will
provide selected VCS actions and information. The
VCS support will be integrated mainly with the
files view. This limitation should be acceptable
if adapting certain style of work.

Reassigning vcscore issues to versioncontrol->vcscore.
