I am assisting a colleague today check out a rather large feature branch. I showed him the branch address and he started checking it out using Tortoise SVN on Windows 7.
Upon returning to my desk (Ubuntu 11.10), I decided to merge the branch with the major trunk. I checked out a brand new copy of the branch, merged it (for the first time in several months) and then re-committed the pages.
Guess what, he’s still checking out the original!!!
Do yourselves a favour guys, make it Linux this Christmas…
