RE: Tortoise: How Are Conflicts Defined?

This question probably belongs on users_at_subversion.tigris.org since it
isn't Tortoise-specific.


Presuming that in each of those cases the base version was different
from A as well as B, then all those where A and B differ by even a
single character (even whitespace) would be conflicts.


You can configure some merge tools to ignore certain types of conflicts
(basically these tools must choose a strategy to automatically resolve
those conflicts), but you cannot configure the internal Subversion
text-based diff to ignore conflicts.


I don't think it would be worthwhile to configure the conflict
identification, but I do think it would be useful if you could plug in
an automatic conflict resolver somehow.

Subject: Tortoise: How Are Conflicts Defined?


Hello Everyone. I have a couple of questions about Tortoise. How are
conflicts between two versions determined? Can this
"conflict-identification" methodology be re-configured? For the
following, would any of these be considered conflicts?

* file A, line 12: a... file B, line 12 a...
* file A, line 12: a... file B, line 12 b...
* file A, line 12: aa... file B, line 12 ab...
* file A, line 12: aa... file B, line 12 aa..
* file A, line 12: aaa... file B, line 12 aab...
* file A, <Assembly: AssemblyVersion("")> ... file B,
<Assembly: AssemblyVersion("")> ...
* file A, Data Source=CFSDB1;Initial Catalog=DBDev;Integrated
Security=True... file B, Data Source=CFSDB2;Initial
Catalog=DBDevelopment;Integrated Security=True...

I've researched this topic online, but have not been able to find
anything helpful.

Thanks. Glenn
