Re: Get Conflict Temporary File Programmatically [Issue 2784]

From: Jeremy Whitlock <jcscoobyrs_at_gmail.com>
Date: 2007-05-31 01:18:52 CEST

Hi All,
    Based on conversation in IRC, the plan is to do a filesystem move
to handle the automatic conflict resolution instead of working with
the API to try and recreate pristine contents of the temporary file
which would then be used to overwrite the conflicted file's contents.
(Temporary in this context means the files created when a conflict
happens. The .mine, .rOLDREV, or .rNEWREV.) If anyone has any
reasons why a move of one of those temporary files over the conflicted
file is a bad idea, please speak up. Consensus in IRC was that this
was the suggested approach.

Take care,
