"The review has to be linked to a SCM repository, so that it can fetch
parts of the file which aren't a part of the review text."
This seems to mean that, in order to show side-by-side the entire
contents of a file's "original" and "changed" versions (with differences
highlighted), one must provide some kind of "link" to the source control system
through which Codestriker can obtain the non-changed lines. It
already has the changed lines, as they came to Codestriker in the diff
I do not understand what it actually means to provide
this "link to a SCM repository". In our current setup, Codestriker
shows the window as if the entire file contents were available (that is, all the
line numbers are present and all the lines from the diff are present), *but* the
rest of the lines (those which were not different, so were not in the diff
output) are empty. The line numbers appear, but not the lines
themselves. I imagine this is because Codestriker does not have the needed
"link to a SCM repository", and so it just leaves the lines in its display
What, *exactly*, is the method by which we make
the "review linked to a SCM repository"? Our SCM system is Perforce
(and we've gotten most of that integration to work just fine).
Please forgive my probably-foolish question, and thank you very
much for your time and help.
Don't talk to me about naval tradition. It's nothing but rum, sodomy and the
