#6301 new enhancement

Option to turn off conflict check

Description

I'm not convinced that the check for same file being modified across different tickets is particularity useful and it would be good if this could be disabled.

As far as I'm concerned svn manages this by preventing commits without updating and resolving conflicts. We have just merged a number of svn from previously separate depts into one, and each one was done under a ticket. Now every change to any existing file is coming up a conflciting ticket.

Maybe Potential conflicts would be a better term to use in the dialog.

Just as a background information, the reason why we developed this plugin in the first place is exactly this one feature. Rentalia [the company I used to work for and for which this plugin was made] is a web company, and uploads modified files individually. If 2 tickets are modifying the same file, the first ticket is closed and ready to be uplaoded, but the second is not, you dont' want to upload that file because you would end up with partial modifications in your production environment. So we needed to know which files got modified for a particular ticket, and which of those files had been modified for other tickets, so that we could analyze if uploading that one file would be a concern or not.

2 years ago (pfff) I added an option to filter out tickets that are in specific states, see http://trac-hacks.org/ticket/4206 . Maybe this can help you filter out those warnings, if your different tickets are in a particular state.

Anyway, a new maintainer for this plugin should be assigned soon, maybe this will be a feature that gets implemented in the future.
