Saving Checkouts


Recommended Posts


Yes, Plastic can store checkout data without checking the item in. This is very useful to change from one configuration to another and be able to recover your status later.

What does it exactly mean? Well, suppose you have checked out files in your workspace, let's say you have /src/foo.c checked out.

Imagine /src/foo.c has three previous revisions, and a fourth one is checked out. Well, now if you want to retrieve revision 2, just to check something on it, maybe compile it, overwriting what you have on your workspace (your checkout). Before overwriting ,Plastic will save your checked out data, so you don't lose your changes with an update operation.

Did I answer your question?
