Subversion branch support for Bazaar

What does conflicting tags mean?

Asked by dmuir on 2009-03-23

Got this while pulling from a bzr repo that is a checkout of an svn repo:

All changes applied successfully.
Now on revision 481.
Conflicting tags:
    ....
    [list of tags]
    ....

What does this mean? Couldn't find anything in the FAQ or in the bzr docs.

It means the tags in the remote branch point at different revisions
than the tags in the local branch.

cheers,

As in one of the tags might be pointing at r400 in the remote branch but r395 in the local branch?
Is it a problem? Does it need fixing? What are the implications?

yes, that would be it. it's not necessarily a problem, just says the tag points at a different revision in the local and the remote branch.

It might not be a problem, but is there any way to get rid of it?

Jelmer Vernooij (jelmer) said : #6

You can get rid of it by changing the tags to be the same locally and remotely, or removing either.

How do you know which tag is remote which is local and how the conflict is generated?

Jelmer Vernooij (jelmer) said : #8

You should get an error message saying which tags were conflicting.

You can use the "bzr tags" command to find out what the tags are pointing at locally and remotely (use "bzr tag -d bzr+ssh://..../" to access remote tags).
