We have a file that gets automatically generated but of which we also need to track the changes (this is a specific case where the changes in the generated file are actually interesting). Usually, the file simply gets overwritten during recreation. But we found out that over time, this keeps stuff in the file that shouldn't be there. So we deleted and recreated it. Unfortunately, Plastic seems to try to be smart about this, recognizes that the file was deleted and recreated, and puts it into both, "Deleted items" and "Added and private items". Very unfortunately, the result is that we lose the history, which is the whole point of using version control for this file in first place. I have tried using cm mv to make Plastic understand that hey, I want continuity of this file but it complains that I can't move a file to itself, which I can agree with. So how can I make Plastic detect the actual changes in the file instead of deleting / recreating it and wiping the history? Btw, this is a text file and marked as such.
When a file is added to the repository, I can't seem to add comments to the file, only view the file. The pane below says "To add a new comment, ..." and gives directions but they don't seem to work. Is this a bug in the code review system or did I miss something?
