The Repository tab shows the changes committed to the repository under the VCS roots within the current project. The Incoming tab shows the changes committed to the repository by other team members, and not yet checked out locally. Both tabs display information stored in the history cache. The number of changelists displayed depends on the cache scope.

Each tab contains the following panes:

  • The Changelists pane shows changelists.
  • The Changed Files pane shows the list of files that were modified and committed within the selected changelist.

Note

If you are using SVN 1.5 or higher both on the server and in the local working copies, the Repository tab also features a Merge Info pane that configures the view in the other two panes and provides control over integration between branches.

Changelists pane

The pane shows the changelists committed and stored in the history cache. When you click a changelist, the files affected by the selected commit are displayed in the Changed Files pane.

Committed changelists often correspond to issues in tracking systems. You can have such issues opened in the browser right from the Changelists pane. This functionality has the following prerequisites:

  • The pattern of the bug tracking system is specified in the Issue Navigation page of the Settings dialog box.
  • The corresponding issue number is mentioned in the commit message.

After the issue navigation is configured, issue numbers in commit messages are rendered as links. Clicking such link brings you to the corresponding page of your issue tracker.

Note

You can specify several pairs of branches if several projects or roots are involved.
