Version control, also known as revision control or source control, is the management of changes to documents, computer programs, large web sites, and other collections of information. Changes are usually identified by a number or letter code, termed the "revision number," "revision level," or simply "revision." Version control systems (VCS) most commonly run as stand-alone applications, but revision control is also embedded in various types of software such as word processors and spreadsheets, and in various content management systems. Revision control allows for the ability to revert a document to a previous revision. Git, a widely-used VCS, has its own topic; other popular systems include CVS, Subversion, Team Foundation Server (TFS), Visual SourceSafe (VSS) and Perforce.

A slightly theoretical question.

A company is developing a cloud service based on PHP/mySQL etc. They have the source code on their own servers.

However, they want to start using external developers to create particular features.

How can they share part of the source code with those developers, without giving them access to the whole thing?

I was thinking that something like GitHub might support that, but it doesnt appear that it does.

Any ideas, or products you know of?
It would essentially be giving a certain developer access to a certain file, and then revoking that access when they had completed their work. I guess it would also need some sort of version control.

I want to know how to edit a comment in git after commit has been pushed , the exact commit number is available with me, I am using "ubuntu 16.04"   and git version is "GitLab Community Edition 8.14.0"
There are few more users who have done a commit after me on the same project.
I do not want other commit messages to be altered.

We very recently just completed a move to a brand new system for our company (ConnectWise) and it includes a KB style documentation feature but does not have any version control.  I'd like to take advantage of using the piece built in to the software but need a way to keep older versions of the articles.

The articles are stored as rows in a specific SQL table, and I can't rewrite the internal code.  I'm trying to avoid a SQL trigger, but it might be the only way to accomplish what I want, which would be before an insert or update to duplicate the row to another table with a version # and date.  

Is there another way to handle this that you [Experts] can think of?  If not, how could I do the trigger to duplicate the row before it's updated without interrupting the software's process?

Appreciate the advice/brain storming in advance.

Hello,

I have a simple Hello World program written in Eclipse Neon.  I am integrating Eclipse with Github and it is giving following error. The Pull works from the repo.  What could be wrong here?

Thank you

I've been using Visual Studio Online for some time with a TFS-style repository.  I've started a new job and am creating a new repository for our small time and want to use git for the first time.  I'm really struggling with importing existing projects to this git style repository and then sharing it with team members. Are there any primers out there for users like myself getting to grips with git in a visual studio environment?

In case it's relevant, we are using VS 2015.

I have a repository in GitHub for a Mobile app built in Cordova. In it, I have a plugin from Here Maps found here https://developer.here.com/mobile-sdks/documentation/ios-premium/topics/quick-start.html which has a large 400MB file in it that I need for the plugin to work that we have developed for the app. I need that file in there to do a compile/build of the app

In GitHub, I'm not able to commit files larger than 100MB. How can I go about this? I don't need to do versioning of this file. It just needs to be in the app for the Plugin to work.

I made the mistake of making some changes on my local "develop" branch. This branch is set up so if I do "git pull," it will align with the "develop" branch on the main server.

After realizing my mistake, I went ahead and committed my changes, then I renamed the "develop" branch to management/server. My rationale was that I change the name of the branch, create a new branch called "develop" and do a "git pull" to grab all of the files from upstream and I would be good to go. When I did that, however, I got an error that said:

"There is no tracking information for the current branch. Please specify which branch you want to merge with."

Not sure what that meant, but I went online and found a command that seemed to do the trick. I did this:

git branch -u upstream/develop

Thing is, my interface says I'm still one commit ahead of upstream. I want to overwrite what I've got on my local "develop" branch with the "develop" branch that's sitting on the main server.

How?

I want a link from /home/svn to be available in /mnt.

My path in apache is /mnt/svn.........

I created the svn link in /mnt but when I try to access from a browser I get path not found.

Any suggestions on how to get this to work. All of my storage space for the web page is in /home. I tried mounting svn in /mnt but it is not seen that way either.

I would rather have the link in /var/www but I cannot create the link there.

I have 25 Word Docs which represent 25 snapshots of this paper I have been writing, where I created a new copy before I made a change in direction and deleted some text. So I made a new filename so I would not over-write any copy, but now I need to "mine" all that old text which had ben abandoned.

I want to make a "mashup" version of the file so I can proof it for ideas on topics that I abandoned months ago.

How do I do this?

I tried the merge feature of Word, but found it did not merge the docs as expected. I want to use some merge feature so that I do not make the doc longer than needed by releasing the same paragraphs and pages. Instead, I understand there will be no meaning to this text, expect it will remind me of the topics I abandoned.

I also tried exporting them as text, then using Beyond Compare to merge them, but once again, it did not combine the files.

Is there a way to extract all words in a file as a CSV file? If I could get that for each file sandpit them into one huge Excel Column, I could scan that column and at least find key words, while key concepts would be impossible to uncover...

Any ideas?

Thanks.

Suppose,In your project lots of developer are working ,each developer has changed their own table ,I want to manage it through versioning.
How to manage it ? which tools should be used to manage it ? what will be best possible approach ?

I am a developer and love Git. But I am writing a book and rely on Word. But Word files and Git are oil and water, since it can easily mangle the file and render it useless. Right?

How about using an RTF? Is that a format which works with source control?

I am sure a Notepad style of crude editor wold work, but I need some basic styling like font, bold, italics, etc.

What tool can I use on a Mac to write this book? I really want to be able to commit and push revisions and make my incremental changes viewable by me later.

Thanks.

Hi

if you checked out a folder using svn, call it A. Then you made some modifications to A.

You also checked out the same folder, call this copy B. You made some modifications to B, then checked it in , so that it becomes the latest revision and the working copy.

How can you merge the changes you have in A with what is the latest revision? Notice how the changes in A have never been checked in and are no longer the latest working copy or revision either (because of B)?

i tried
svn merge /path/to/A /path/to/B
Also
svn merge --reinitegrate /path/to/A /path/to/B

thanks

I created new workspace in eclipse.  Then, I created a 'C' language Project within this workspace.

I used SVN Command Line Client from windows command prompt to checkout  C Source code from Repository into this Project folder.

Now, the project folder in windows explorer has the checkout source code but this source code doesn't appear in eclipse project folder.  Eclipse Project Folder is empty.

I tried to drag source code into eclipse project explorer.  I also tried copying source code from windows explorer project folder to eclipse project folder but there is error message:    "Cannot import 'trunk'.  The source and destination are same."
