VSS support unfortunately is not very mature. I don't use it myself or
have an installed copy, and so can't test it. I had a developer last year
I was working with in getting support in, but unfortunately he didn't see
this through to completion.
I am more than happy to work with you on getting proper VSS support into
Codestriker, but I will need your help.
The first thing we need to understand is how can be generate topic text
corresponding to a diff file? I know in SS, you can create a "unix diff"
for a specific file doing something like:
> ss Diff -DU200X5 zot.c
However, for this to be really useful, we need to make this run over your
whole project, so that all of the differences in your project can be seen
in a single file.
Is there a way for SS to do this? I understand there is also a "ss Diff
-R" command which recursively goes through your project, but I am not sure
if this can be combined with the above flags? If you can send me some
example output from the above commands, that would be great.
The developer I mentioned I believe was in the process of writing a script
to do this, but perhaps you have a better idea how this can be done?
Once we have this, it is easy to tell Codestriker how to parse the VSS diff
file and get it integrated properly.
Now, the other route we can take is to create topics via the "start tag",
"end tag" and "module name" fields. What you need to show me are some VSS
commands that we can run from the command line which retrieve the text
that you want to review, with label arguments.
