Piston 1.3.2: More switch corrections

Sorry for the double message, but I found another bug in the piston
switch subcommand. This warranted another patch release, or else it
would have been unusable.

= What is it ?

Piston is a utility that eases vendor branch management.
This is similar to svn:externals, except you have a local copy
of
the files, which you can modify at will. As long as the changes are
mergeable, you should have no problems.

= What’s changed ?

2007-03-09 1.3.2

  • piston switch had a bad constant access which caused failures.

= Installation

sudo gem install --include-dependencies piston

Enjoy !

Ok, say I have checked out code from some remote repo using piston in
“/vendor/plugins” directory of rails and have modified the plugin.
Now, I want to checkin these modifications to the remote repository,
so that other people can also get the new code.

So, how does piston solve this problem? can i checkin my plugin from
RAILS_ROOT, assuming RAILS_ROOT is associated with different SVN repo
and plugin has been downloaded from different svn repo?

At the moment, Piston provides no help to do that. The best you could
do is determine what changes you made using svn log, and then svn diff
the relevant revisions. There already is a feature request by Evan
Weaver for this.

I believe this is something Piston should handle, so it will be in the
next minor revision.

Thanks for using Piston !

Hello Francois!

It seems there are still some problems with switch:

here’s what happens when i try to switch my rspec_on_rails plugin from
the 0_8_1 tag to the 0_8_2 tag:

zen% piston switch
