    Is this something in the works for a future release?  It would be convenient as we need to check all of our code in and out of SourceSafe.  Can do it manually, but that is kind of a pain.  Found that pythonwin doesn't do this well over the network with logins.  Besides, I've gotten pretty comfortable with drpython.  :-)

    Thanks.

    • Yes, and No.

      (And By yes I mean no, and by no I mean yes).

      I have never used SourceSafe.   However If I had an idea of what was involved, this could always be added as a plugin.

       
    • I see this also so.

      Such things would certainly blast the project.
      Or do we want an "Eierlegende Wollmilchsau" as emacs ? :)

      "Eierlegende Wollmilchsau": such a useful animal,
      which lay eggs, give milk, give meat and wool.

       
    • :) No Comment at this juncture.

        As an FYI - there is a module that ties in to this via the pythonwin modules.  The problem is that it doesn't seem to handle logging in to remote VSS Servers with a name and password.  I don't know how much Mark Hammond is working on VSS right now, but he may be willing to lend some code towards supporting this.
