Remote changes are not visible

Postby Mumpitzstuff » Fri Aug 10, 2007 12:09 pm

It is really a pain that remote changes are not visible as overlay icon or overlay text. Let me describe the scenario:

1.) We have a project with 2 software developers.
2.) Some files are changed (checkin) by SW1.
3.) SW2 should see an overlay icon for this files to see that they are changed by another developer.

Hello Mumpitzstuff,
unfortunately this is a common working cycle with cvs / svn and in this case outside of scope of subversive development.
Usually more than 1 developer should not work on the same lines in a file(note that two developer can edit the same file as long as they edit not the same lines).
If you need more infos which user edits a file, you can use locking with svn lock.
