#36 Quicklu jumping to "uptodate check failed files"


Scenario :

1. user makes changes to local copy
2. tries to commit a dir
3. cvs tells user that some files are not up to date

There is some room here for improvement. Now the user
needs to look into the log and then needs to find the
file in the dir. tree. Because he would prefer to do
per file updates, because sometimes dir level updates
bring to many changes.

This is not really convenient since if there are many
files, it is needed to scroll the log widget and this
he needs to do repetitively.

A better way would be, if these "up to date" files
could be listed in a list box and the user could
individually click and do cvs operations on the file.

    You could use the 'Remote changes' feature.

    1) Select the required directory and run the log command
    ensuring that 'Update status of files in explorer' is selected.

    2) When the command is complete, go back to the explorer and
    any files that require patching will have a blue circle icon
    with an exclamation mark on it. The 'Remote status' field in
    the file table will also be 'Needs patch'.

    3) Change the filter to 'Remote changes' to see only these

    4) Select the root file and enable flat mode to see all
    files that need patching.

    Note that there was a problem where the remote status of all
    files was getting removed whenever any file was updated.
    This has now been fixed for the soon to be release
    0.4.7-beta, although remote status is not kept when you refresh.

    Hope this helps,
