Merge issue (only merge last change)

Post by veldev » Fri Jan 28, 2011 8:42 am


We have the following situation:
* User A edits a file and checks-in in our development environment
* User B edits the same file later and checks-in in our development environment

Now we only want the changes of user B merged into our testing environment. Via merge branches we choose the check-in of User B. Now SourceGear Vault Pro 5.1.1. tells that there is 1 merge conflict. Except the conflict all changes of User B are merged correctly and the changes of User A are ignored.

DiffMerge 5.1.1. shows the conflict is in 2 connected lines. Line 1 is changed by User B and line 2 by User A. The proposal from DiffMerge is to merge the line of the wrong user to the center.

Is it possible that SourceGear merges this automatically without giving a conflict? Is it possible that Diffmerge merges the correct line?

If you like I can send a screendump of the situation!

Kind regards,

Erwin ten Velde
