git problems
« on: August 26, 2012, 11:29:36 am »
I use git to version control a few files that I keep on a memory stick so I can take them home and work on them during evenings and weekends. At work we use Perforce. However, I have encountered a number of times that after a while slickedit cannot correctly show the history of a file. A git log filename shows all commits, but history in slickedit only shows up to a certain item and no more. If I branch and work from the branch, slickedit correctly shows history for a while. Why this behavior? Do I use git functionality wrongly? Isn't it possible to mix usage of git from command line and inside slickedit?

It looks like we are only listing for the current branch - are you seeing all of the current branch?

No, that is the problem, some entries are missing but a git log filename at the prompt in the branch directory shows all entries.

It seems like comments having several lines, or maybe only comments having at least one empty line in it, do not show up in History. Today I committed with a log like this

bla bla bla
intentional blank line
bla bla bla

And it didn't show up. Then I tested to make a small change and commit with the following comment:
Dummy correction. Comment on one line

The commit is shown in History.
