Subject [jira] [Commented] (SVN-4786) Create a WC working-mods editor
Date Fri, 14 Dec 2018 22:05:00 GMT


Julian Foad commented on SVN-4786:

The "URL to WC copy" operation now goes through this new WC editor.

Now I'm starting to test the editor in a round-trip manner: copy a WC, revert the changes,
use this WC editor to copy the changes back from the other WC, and we should end up back where
we started.

It immediately fails; I'll be looking into it.

> Create a delta-editor that applies working modifications to the WC.
> It will be useful for implementing things such as shelving, which in principle (and,
with this in place, more easily in practice) are just copying a set of modifications from
WC to shelf and from shelf to WC.
> Use it to implement the existing client modifications ('svn add', 'svn copy', 'svn rm',
etc.). Why? (1) ensure it works for and fully supports those cases; (2) ensure those cases
are handled consistently (it will probably reveal inconsistencies in the old implementation).
