I appreciate the sorting by state feature. It is very useful to me and
does reduce my error rate.
As I see it, relying entirely on sorting by state assumes that:
* The user will not make any mistakes
* All files are added / checked in when checkins are done
These assumptions do not match my situation:
* I'm doing machine tool control work and sometimes work in a lab /
machine shop. There can be hammering, riveting and people cutting
metal with power saws.
* There are interruptions.
* I get switched to different projects sometimes, leaving code
half-written. I do not want to discard this work.
* I'm working on project A which shares a common code library (call
it Lib01) with project B. Sometimes I do partial checkins to e.g.
make Lib01 additions available to project B.
It seems to me that occasional user errors are unavoidable. I would
like to be able to detect user error easily once it occurs.
My existing files are under one directory structure, call it C:\Projects\.
I want to update (read-only is fine) the same repository contents into
another directory, call it C:\TestBuild\. I will then perform a build
in C:\TestBuild\ to test the repository contents.
Is there an existing way to do this?
Thank you and best regards,
