Add commentaries on specific revision number

Postby mercyANDjustice » Mon Jun 04, 2007 3:32 pm

Hello!

We want to have information about tags in the main line of development (trunk). When you made tag than you have comment in the specific revision but only in the tag folder. It's possible to add commentary to specific revision number also to the trunk? We want to have information in trunk folder which revision refers to which label (tag).

For instance:

class Hello.java
Revision Commentary
3681 v1.0.0.3
3650
...
3620 v1.0.0.2
...
3513 v1.0.0.1

It's possible to have the same information in the trunk and also in the tag folder? Thanks for your help!

Hi,
you should use a nameconvention for labeling the tags. so that Version Info is in tagname e.g

_tag_V_1_0_0_3

you can also use the log message to provide this versioning information
why do you want this information in your trunkfolder?

you can access this info always with a "svn log" on root-dir, which shows you all operations in your repository
alternatively a "svn log" on /tags-dir shows you all tags, with their revisions and (in log message or dir name the Version of this tag)

We work on project Automotive register for our country (from 2003). We work with VSS (Visual Source Safe). Now we test if we'll move to Subversion. We work in RSA 7.0 and maybe we will also use Subversive plug-in (we think that it is nicer than Subclipse :wink: ). We have a process of version controlling and it's works fine. We have also a lot of versions (tags). So we sometimes need to compare two versions (tags) of files. In VSS this task is very simple, because you just have to see history of file and you'll see "labels" of specific version and than compare it. Because we'll develop our code in trunk, we'll need sometimes to know which specific revision corresponds to specific version (tag).

Unfortunately, I think that these information aren't in trunk folder. When you copy the snapshot of your code to the tag or branch and you add commentary, this commentary is added only in the tag/branch folder but you have no information of tagging/branching work in the trunk folder (the same problem is also with merging - you don't have any information about it). We work in the trunk folder and we need to know when we'll look at history of file, when specific version (tag) was made.
