Description pzgyuanf 2005-01-17 17:36:41 UTC
I haven't set any project by using VCS In
netbeans. There's some puzzles which I still  have
not understood.
1. Versioning->Versioning Manager
   why I must register and configure local working
directories for version control? And I did do it
according to all help, but
   - when I didn't check out anything, anything
take place except just a empty named VCS symbol in
Versioning window
   - when I checked out something and try to open
a file, it always connect to remote server(in the
case of pserver). So I must to ask what are local
working directories what is called in 'register
and configure local working directories for
version control'. Whether is it just a VCS
repository exploring? 
IMO, if it is a VCS repository Exploring, the
working directory and checked out option are not
in the correct place.

2. What is the meanings of 'Set offline mode'?
  In VCS Customizer dialog, 'Set offline mode' had
been positioned in Profile tab bottom and above in
Advanced tab.
  I tried to set in all manner, but VCS still
connect to remote server temerariously.

Normally, one first set up a VCS/repository
Exploring, from which we can browser all modules
in the repository remotely, and 
against which we can check out/ new project in
local directory.

IMO. the VCS module tweaks these two conception
and give some puzzles to users.

Maybe the VCS try to cache remote files in local
dircetory. but the cache mechanism must be
transparent to users.

Maybe I've miss some trickes of VCS, please feel
free to grant instruction to me.

thanks forward.
