Subversion Hints and Tips

November 25, 2012

Previously on the post,I hinted the problems that may arise on getting the latest version of the project simply hitting Getting Latest Version.

Here are some tips: –

Don’t update unless you have saved everything (“File”->”Save All”; for me, that’s Ctrl+Shift+S). In case you have made that mistake and you’re stuck, do override the changes on disk and then merge the lost changes manually.

Don’t commit without checking which files you changed and quickly check the diffs to see whether the changes are what you expect.

Commit early, commit often. More developers work on the same code base, the more likely you get conflicts as discussed. The longer you change your working copy without updating, the more likely you get conflicts. The update frequency can reduce the likelihood of conflicts.
