Why does the merge wizard only work with contiguous ranges of transactions? If I check in a series of transactions, and someone does another one in the middle, then I can't exclude that transaction from the things I want to merge, and I have to do the merge in multiple passes.
Because it takes all the changesets from all the transactions you select and then compresses them all into one changeset. The alternative, which is how I am planning for the next version to work, is to iterate over the changesets one at a time. This approach is more powerful, but it does create a lot of extra work. Specifically, since the user may need to help resolve conflicts at each and every iteration, the user interaction issues get a lot more difficult to handle from a wizard running in a modal dialog.GregM wrote:Why does the merge wizard only work with contiguous ranges of transactions?
