Whichever it is can I make 1 request in advance please?
When the code base moves, PLEASE make sure that the last image in Goode Code and the first image in whatever the new site/system turns out to be are IDENTICAL. That is NO code changes or updates whatsoever between the 2.
Then for the rest of us mere-mortals trying to follow along behind, we will be able to transition smoothly between the 2, knowing that any issues/differences/discrepancies are ours and ours alone.
Agree with your reply - if the person in question is using DVCS.
But a lot - more than half at a guess - do not. They rely on the old but simple method of comparing their modified code and the new version of the DF code, and referring back to the previous version of the DF code when they are unsure of the conflicts.
This is much harder if the old DF code and the new DF code are both different to each other across 2 different systems.
I did say this few times but editing the core is not an excuse. When someone feels bold and start adding it's own code it should also be responsible of maintaining it. Developers are aware of the issue but are not responsible whatsoever.
I'm not geek but I managed to update highly modified sites from v8 to v9 and a couple to v10 maintaining all the original modifications. With DVCS it's way simpler then doing so with CVS. I just let the software do it's things, rarely needing manual merges...
