change management Questions

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. 
 
I am curious to know of any good advice or best practices to use i CM when dealing with those type of scenarios. 
 
We use MS TFS as version control and status accounting tool, but I am really interested in learning about best practice in general.
 
Thanks Johan.

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

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.

Is anyone aware of a publication where guidlines are provided for helping determine the number of administrators needed for supporting a specific SCM Tool given a number of developers?

Hi. I have been looking around for new references to the software CA Harvest SCM and until now have not been able to identify this solution in recent independant studies (for example, Gartner Magic Quadrant, Forrester Wave, or others).  Does anyone know why  Harvest is not included in the recent versions of these reports?

Hi, we are 100 memeber team working on one Java application. We are following Agile process and every week we will have a release for bug fixes and code changes.
Parallely we are also working on developement release on same code base.

Version Control tool is SVN.

For every week, (issues fix release and development  release)  all 50 devolpers are merging their changes manually. Becuase of this we have been facing many merge related issues and even some developers are missing to merge their code changes.we dont have any validation in place to validate developer word ( because of 300 + issues and 50 developers.) . we are simply assuming all developers merged their code changes as they mentioned. ) 

Kindly adivce any optimized solution or Merge Automations if any ?
