General Board / Model change notice
« on: February 13, 2008, 05:00:33 am »
I'm on my 28th day of trial and at yesterday's team meeting the project managers asked, "If I add a Use case or change the scenario for already built code, how do my designers/programmers know that I just made a change and that they have to modify their code?" Anyone have a change notice process that works for their team?

General Board / subversion source control check in error
« on: February 11, 2008, 07:30:42 am »
I'm using subversion
svn --version
svn, version 1.4.6 (r28521)
  compiled Dec 20 2007, 16:19:22

and trying to get packages controlled using EA 7.0 build 818.

Here are the steps to test subversion acc. to the EA whitepaper.

2. Open a command prompt in DOS.
3. Navigate to the directory that will hold your Working Copy directory.
4. Add and commit the temporary file to the repository using the following
commands:
svn add <fileName>
svn lock <fileName>
5. Now, update the file from the repository, lock the file. To do this use the
following commands:
svn update <fileName>
svn lock <fileName>
6. Edit and save the file using an editor.
7. Now commit the file once more using the following command:
svn commit <fileName> -mA meaningful comment.

Here is what I had to do to get subversion to work from the command line.

4. insert a "svn commit <fileName>" between the add and lock
7. insert a "svn unlock <fileName>" before the last commit.

Without this unlock, I get an authorization failed error message.
This is the same error message I get from EA
when I try to perform a "check in" operation on a controlled package.
I have no trouble putting a package under control and keeping it checked out.
I just can't ever check it back in.

Is there some subversion or EA configuration that allows one to commit a locked file?

Thanks,

Bugs and Issues / baseline notes
« on: February 15, 2008, 04:16:35 am »
Typing a carriage return while entering notes on a create baseline dialog executes baseline creation. There's no way to type a carriage return into the note - though the presence of the scroll bars on the right of the text entry box certainly suggest that was the intent.
