Comment 1 dj_technohead 2011-09-17 15:01:55 UTC
When selecting Version Control\Update on the solution, MonoDevelop appears to update just the main project from SVN but not the other projects in the solution
Comment 2 dj_technohead 2011-09-18 15:54:54 UTC
This is also true for commits.
Comment 3 Lluis Sanchez 2011-09-19 13:54:53 UTC
Are you using the Update command in contextual menu or in the main menu?
Comment 4 dj_technohead 2011-11-15 14:48:51 UTC
I'm using the update command in the contextual menu when right clicking on the solution in the Solution pad.

I've had the same issue commiting - I have to do 5 commits.. wouldn't be so bad if I could assign a keystroke to it.

traderhut, could you explain how to reproduce this issue?

Sorry, I didn't reply.

  Due to this bug, I abandoned SVN completely.  (A good idea for everyone on the planet IMHO - out of 9+ version control systems I've used, it is 2nd to the last with only Perforce being worse. - Yes, I'll take Source Safe, or PVCS, or even RCS from 1985 over it.  Although it never happened under Xamarin, I always seem to get working directories hosed up with SVN and they have to be wiped out to make them work again.  And every now and then stuff gets lost when you do that.  - End Soapbox ;-) )

I am now using Git.   As such, I can't reproduce it.

>>> My steps to reproduce it was:   Click on Xamarin Studio.  Open Project.  Not have version control anymore.

Can't get much easier than that. 

For you guys to reproduce it in QA, I would create a project under SVN+SSH on a OLD version of your software, say a year ago, and open it in the current version.  (If that doesn't work, open it in every version between them first.  Or if there is a version you know did something specific with SVN, then maybe try skipping that version or being sure to include it.

I've not tried for the last 4 or so months, so I can't say exactly when it got hosed up.
