Merge Branches and Add Directory

Post by GregM » Wed Mar 02, 2005 2:47 pm

I added a directory and several indivdual files in another directory as part of a commit. When I do a Merge Branches with that commit, the individual files are copied to the the target directory, but the new directory is not. Instead, a new directory is created in the temp directory, and the files are placed there. That means that in order to build the target to make sure everything merged correctly, I have to manually copy the directory to the proper location.

Why is this directory not placed in the proper location by the merge wizard?

Merge Branches adds individual files from the working folder, but when it adds a whole folder, it performs the add from a temp area.

Basically, there is no good reason for this behavior. :-(

I've logged a bug for this.
