This seems to be in principle the same as the tie branches. It might make sense to have a way to _optionally_ make a tie branch. How should that work? Maybe there needs to be even an explicit support for this - should TopGit just check the dependency tree when sequencing the topic branches and have a step that says: "I'm going to sequence branch A. If there is branch T that has only already sequenced branches + branch A as dependencies, use T's content instead of A." Would that be satisfactory? Finding out this information would be very expensive, of course. But for other reasons, we might want to keep a cache of branch dependencies. Of course, in the case of A1--A2--A3--A4--C / B1--B2--B3--B4. the sequenced branches would still be like A1--A2--A3--A4--B1--B2--B3--C unless you create the T1..T4 branches manually. -- Petr "Pasky" Baudis The next generation of interesting software will be done on the Macintosh, not the IBM PC. -- Bill Gates _______________________________________________ vcs-pkg-discuss mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org http://lists.alioth.debian.org/mailman/listinfo/vcs-pkg-discuss
