Dear Experts,

Need your expter advice in setting up a new repository structure for our product development.

We have a software product, with 15-compnents and each of the 15-components have at least 15-modules.

Earlier our admin guy had configured the Stash server for us.

The current setup is like this:
Our IT engineer had created 15-Projects in stash/bitbucket server for 15-Components
For each of the 15-modules in a given component, a individual repository was created

Hi,

 

My company is planning a Synergy to GIT migration.

I have found the PySynergy project on Github and trying to use it.

 

I had to adapt it for our environment and fix some small issues.

But I see i'm unable to migrate the source code to GIT with the code tree.

 

Has anyone tried this migration, including the code tree?

Any suggestions / references?

 

Thanks,

Srikanth

I got error while access the Ca Harvest Workbench, comm error: 306

Can anyone let us know any good reliable company that provides efficient and good quality quick services in providing SVN support. Also if we can get information about their SLA requirements and paid support features, it will be appreciated.

Please share your experiences and the results (if possible) for identification of SVN support providers.

Thank you!

My company is replacing Source Safe.  For some reason Bitbucket has been selected. This is likely because we use other Atlassian tools.

My question is, does use of Bitbuck require that a distributed CM model be in place?

Thanks in advance,

Steve

 

Does Perforce need to be installed on a UNIX server, or can it be installed on a Windows server?

Hello Everyone,

I'd like to understand how companies using SVN, TFS, Git, GitHub perform backing out production deployments from two perspectives, your re-deployment method but more importantly, how are you indicating in your respective repo that if code was rolled back, what are you doing internally with your SCM tool to force a message to developers that code was backed out.

Thanks

In practice I have two new features that are under change control and that I want to be able to track them as separate changes from the first change and until the features are deployed to production.
 
How do I handle the fact that they both need to make the same changes to one part of the code? If I let one of them carry the change but then decides later on to back out of that “Feature” then I  will break the other feature that where depending on the same change. 
 

How can we use metadata to control checkouts in a CM tool?
I.E. Is there a tool which will allow us to identify connections such that, Iif I check out object "A" the the tool will force the checkout of Items "B" and "C" as well.
