We use many tools, so perhaps I can use a plugin (jira, greenhopper, […]
Been using SVN branches with Tortoise 1.6. I’ve been periodically merging the trunk into the branch to keep it up to date. Today, I thought I’d reintegrate the branch. I chose “Reintegrate a branch” from Tortoise and received the following error message: Reintegrate can only be used if revisions 4709 through 5019 were previously merged […]
