RE: Support for partial checkins?

I think this is something you can achieve with TortoiseSVN. It displays a
list of modified, added, deleted, etc files and you can selectively choose
which ones are committed to the repository.

I check in change sets of a single file all day long, that way the message
is applicable to the file(s) in the change set.

Does this make sense? Is it helpful?

Subject: Support for partial checkins?

(Partial checkin, partial commit, commit subset of files)

I did some looking in the users@ archive and the Issue tracker, and
didn't find anything after a few minutes.

One of the features I miss most from Perforce was the ability to do
an atomic commit of a subset of the modified files. The basic UI in
Perforce to do this presented when editing the checkin comment
interactively.

Your designated editor is invoked, and you are presented with a list
of the files you're about to commit along with a place where you can
write the checkin comment. (Unlike CVS) each file is listed on a
separate line, with the full path from the top of the WD. Any file
you don't want to commit, you simply delete the corresponding line
from the checkin editor session.

Is there a plan to add this to subversion? If not, why not? Should I
open an Issue for this?

Thanks!
