Subject Re: [sanselan] project dead?

Thank you Christian.

SVN is not like Git or or Mercurial, it doesn't allow you to develop a
decentralized patchset of small independent patches that apply sequentially
after each other and then send it through to an issue. Currently my patch is
at 1368 lines in 46 kB, and still growing - this takes a good while to
review and commit, if patches that large are even acceptable in one go.

How do you guys develop multiple independent patches using SVN without
committing in between? Do you use "diff -Nur" manually across multiple
copies of the source tree? Or do you accept a single massive patch?

In a few days I will update the issue (
https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/SANSELAN-40) with a new version of my
patch and then mail the developer mailing list.

Thank you
Damjan
