Description John Rice 2007-05-02 10:31:42 UTC
Currently there is no way for a user to revert a file or update all files in the
working directory to anything other than the head (tip) revision. We need to add
support to allow users to perform selected Updates or Reverts to specific revisions.

Initial proposal is to add a drop down combo to the Status Panel to allow an
Update/Revert target revision to be specified. We may also want to support a
Revert To... and Update To... menu items that will allow the user to select the
revision for files that are Up to date and in Version Control that will not
appear in the Status Panel, which is only showing changed files.

Beside <Update All Icon> in Status Panel place:
Update/Revert To: <Combo of Revision>

This will default to Tip and will list all the revisions that are available.

It's important functionality. P2.
Comment 2 John Rice 2007-05-02 11:23:26 UTC
Will work on this for release 1.1
Comment 3 Padraig Obriain 2007-06-27 11:15:05 UTC
Revert Modifications dialog is provided which allows the user to specify the changeset to revert to.

In addition Combo Box is provided in Status window to allow revision to be specified.
