Hi, We're trying to follow a pre-commit workflow with bzr with all patches submitted to the review board prior to checkin to the repo - I was wondering anyone had any experience with this and how best to handle pending patches.
Sometimes it's inconvenient to wait for the review process to be completed before working on another part of the code - as a result, I can have a few patches pending and cherry picking the right files from the checkout to manually create a diff can be quite time consuming and error prone when there are a handful of small review posts pending. I've written a quick and dirty script which associates specific files with a review ticket and provides me with a view of changes which have been made on those files since the last posting - it also allows the files included to be manipulated from the command line and post the current patches as required. I'm quite sure it can be improved upon and would be happy to provide a link to it if anyone is curious (or just wants to point and laugh :p). I was wondering if there were other ways to handle this - I was vaguely thinking about using some kind of local repo, tagging each checkin comment with the associated review id and creating review posts from that, but it would still involve some kind of manual cherry picking process when handling merges from other developers. With the tool I have, the latter tends to be a bit of a non-issue as I just need to make the corrections, and run my script against each of my pending reviews and it does the rest (with the exception of patches which pending patches which touch the same source files - those tend to block me until the previous review is cleared up). Possibly over thinking the issue :-) - any suggestions welcome.
