Description Alan McGovern 2011-12-13 10:23:12 UTC
If I try to commit at the solution node (top level) it only commits projects
within that folder hierarchy and below, my additional projects that are in
other locations on the hard drive have to be committed independently. For example if the file structure is


and the MonoDevelop solution structure is:

  - LibProject
  - TestProject

and you select commit in libproject, everything in 'TestProject' is committed too even though it is a separate project.

Thanks so much for taking the time to submit this report! I attempted to reproduce this issue based on the bug description with the latest Visual Studio 2017 for Mac Preview version 7.2, and I was unable to hit the problem. If this issue is still occurring for you, please reopen this report and attach a reproduction, ideally starting with a new template project and then adding just the code necessary to demonstrate the issue.
