#6181 new enhancement

Commit Multiple / All Changes

Reported by: philip.makedonski@… Owned by: ivangsa
Priority: low Component: WikiEditorForEclipsePlugin
Severity: minor Keywords: eclipse, multiple commits
Cc: Trac Release: 0.11

Description

Currently each changed page has to be committed individually. Given that multiple pages are changed subsequently (in the course of a single session), and that the commit process is not a background process, it would be very useful if it were possible to commit a set of changed pages together or even also commit all the changed pages at the end of a session or during the session.

Example:

Page 1 includes content from Pages 2,3,4,5 ... These pages do not exist yet. In order to have a preview of the complete picture (i.e. Page 1), all the included pages need to be committed. This would mean that after the necessary pages are created, one has to go through each and every single one of them and commit them, waiting on each step, which breaks the workflow. I may try to work on this if I get the time, but in the mean time anyone interested may get on with it if it is technologically possible (it might be a restriction of the TracRPC, but in this case I guess some form of background queuing on the client side should be a viable workaround).

Yes, it's true that being able to commit multiple pages all together can be somehow useful but in most cases commiting a page would represent a very tiny fraction of the time that you have spent editing it so it won't be a great deal of productivity improvement on this...

I believe it's better spend time and effort in other fronts that aren't still open, but ..

I may try to work on this if I get the time, [...]

I don't see this enhancement to be of great priority but of course any contribution will be welcome so if you feel like doing it just go for it, we are here to help on any thing we can.

Regards

True, but it does prove to be a productivity hurdle when restructuring large pages into smaller ones. I also noticed some occasional issues with pages not being saved or committed properly. I guess I'll have to find some time to have a look into the matter before it drives me nuts.. It is not that often that one'd restructure large portions of text, but when that happens it does get quite annoying.

Thank you for the quick feedback! Shall I have any questions I'd let you know.
