Question about Moving Files/Directories

From: Doug Tanner <doug.tanner_at_benefitfocus.com>
Date: 2007-04-30 16:05:27 CEST

We are in the process of moving our file structure in our projects over
to the maven structure. In testing, I have used the svn move feature
which works well, but I am having trouble figuring out a way for
developers to quickly and easily move their local code over. The plan
is for me to move all the directories and files and commit them all.
However, if I do this and then commit my changes any developer who
updates their local code base with find any locally modified files
missing and thus loose any of their changes. One way around this issue
is for all developers to check in their code the night before, but this
almost guarantees that I will have a broken build to try and test to
make sure that I did not screw something up in the move. Has anyone run
across this issue or found any easy way to do this such that developer
impact is minimized?

 

Thanks,
