  • Recently installed, weird behavior

    I recently installed SmartSVN and I'm getting some weird behavior.

    1. The first and most alarming is that when I'm not making changes to the local repository, when someone else checks something in, it's comparing my local repository to the new check in, and because I haven't updated to get their new check-in, it's showing up as a change in my local repository (at least I think this is what is happening. The bottom line is I'm not making changes to a file, and it's telling me there are changes for that file, and giving me the option to check in changes). This is really dangerous. If I don't notice, and do a check-in, I'm essentially un-doing what my co-worker has committed.

    2. If I revert the files from the first problem, they do revert to what is on the svn server, but the files continue to stay in the files tab saying that I've changed something. If a revert doesn't fix this, what will?

    3. I need to have local changes to my repository that I never check in. I'd like to stop the files from showing up in my repository as changed (they are annoying to always see). I thought ignoring the files would fix this, but it doesn't. What could I do to fix this?

    Thanks,
    Scott

    Hi there,

    If you try to commit and the file has changed remotely you will get an error telling you to update first.

    You can opt not to see these remote changes (view > remote changed files).
