Reverted and subtractive merged files not shown in file history.

Recommended Posts

If some reverts a file it only shows the CL number in bold that it's been reverted to in the file history. This is confusing and it should dhow the CL number as the operation does have a CL which you can see in the branch view.

This makes it difficult to look through the history and see someone has done a reversion. It is also not entirely obvious that the reversion is going to stick when merged in from another branch.

The same can be said for a subtractive merge. We have just had a case where so changes were being reverted when merging from main and we couldn't understand why. It turns out that someone had done an accidental subtractive merge in another branch and subbed it to main. When looking in the file in questions history that operation wasn't visible so it was really hard to track. Please can subtractive merges and revertions be listed with a CL number just like any other operation to make tracking down this sort of thing easier.

Thanks,

Stephen.
