Re: Problems with uncommitted working directories, from home and work.

I've applied two approaches to address this problem that can be implemented
readily with CVS:

The first method is to use a personal branch for your own development and
periodically merge to the main branch.  This is a standard pattern of use
in CVS.

The second is to divorce the notion of "committed code" from "good code",
allowing the developers to commit at will.  Then have a mechanism to
identify the good code and only use that outside the developer's workspace.
This can be crudely implemented with tags, but I used changesets implemented
with the submit/assemble method that has been discussed in this forum
several times in the past.

I work onsite about half the time and offsite the other half.  Some
nights, I'll be onsite, be half way through a complex set of changes,
have heaps of modified files, and have to go home.

The next morning, I want to pick up from where I left off, but this time
from home.  I can't commit the stuff at work (at least to the head
branch), because it's not stable enough (may not even build).

I'm currently using a shell script cludge that scp's the modified and
new files over to my home PC, and then I have to remember to do the
oposite before going back onsite.
