Conny,

I'll just clarify that by "our approach" I mean "Fuel Advance's approach"
not "TSVN's approach".

Thanks,

Rainer,

What... so you login to the same workstation simultaneously? I think you
missed the point Rainer - XP (Extreme Programming not Windows XP) uses the
idea of pair programming a lot. That is, two people on one machine. One
drives, one assists. They alternate regularly. It is fairly well established
that this increases the quality of code dramatically, and in many cases
efficiency too.

Conny,

This is an SVN issue not a TSVN issue, and thus would be best directed to
their mailing list. However, I don’t think they'd be likely to budge because
the concept of authors is failry grounded in the system.

Our approach is that you have a commit something like:

        Revision: 750
        Author: tathamoddie
        Comment: Tatham Oddie + Tom Harvey. Added SQL data provider
support
                        to Notitia.

That way, when you do a blame and hover over the lines you can see both
authors in the message.

This doesn’t solve the stats problem though, although you could write a
little script that downloaded the log, then analysed it itself using Regexs
to extract the author's names.

 

Thanks,

Every developer should work with his own profile. He/She has to log in
before
he/she starts working. Because the user is already authenticated it is also
safe
to save the svn auth.
