sync to revision

Asked by Greg

Is there UI to sync to a specific revision number?

I have been exploring the UI from the explorer context menu. The Log view shows revisions and allows Diff-ing, but I do not see a way to revert/sync to a specific revision number. The Revert option only appears when a file has been modified and reverts to the last checkin.

I suppose the more general question might be 'Do I still need to use the command line for common commands?' or 'What commands does TortoiseBZR support?'

I believe in Bazaar terminology this is a 'revert' operation.

Eg. in the Bazaar User Guide 3.8.8 Reverting to the state of an earlier version...

bzr revert -r 19
bzr commit -m "Backout fix for bug #5"

I believe you need uncommit. revert + commit makes a little sense (at least for me). Only if you really want to keep the revisions you're trying to backout. BTW, backout it's the hg term?

In any case, if you think your question is related to TBZR context menu in the Explorer, it's better to file a bug against TBZR. Though your request could be implemented in the usual qrevert window. In this case you need to file a bug against QBzr project (because TBZR uses QBzr as GUI front-end).

Thank you.

I have a local repository of a .net application and I use Bazaar to update the main database. I am currently facing a problem of updating it to my database and I am getting the following error without the data base being updated:

"Commiting to: C:/Documents and Settings/sysvrjoshi/Desktop/TestTechApps3/
aborting commit write group: PointlessCommit<No changes to commit>
bzr: ERROR: no changes to commit. use --unchanged to commit anyhow"

The about mentioned message is shown even when the main database is not updated as the local repository both are not similar.

I use the following commands to commit to the main database:

*Update your local changes to central
cd C:\Example\TechApps3
bzr add
bzr commit -m "revision notes"
bzr update

Please help me with this issue.
