I'm just starting out with bazaar, and I've found that the checkout feature is the most useful for the way I work – namely I can c/o from a "master copy", do some development and then commit my changes in the new directory. This then updates the "master copy".
But what if I'm working on (eg) two projects, changing different portions of code? Say:
~/master - master copy bzr co master ./gui bzr co master ./engine
So I'm doing gui-related stuff in the ./gui directory and under-the-hood stuff in ./engine. How should I commit my changes? If I commit gui first, then engine, I guess any conflicts will be flagged in engine?
Is there a way to merge gui and engine, and then do just one commit to the master copy?
To make things a little more complicated, how about if I do this:
bzr branch gui ./mouse
Now I perhaps I've been working on mouse, but also on gui. If I want to merge the code from gui AND mouse, and then commit to master, what is the best way to manage this? Or indeed, if I also:
bzr branch gui ./keyboard
If I've changed altered gui, keyboard and mouse, should I hierarchically merge – ie mouse+keyboard, then merge this with gui, then commit gui to master?
I hope it is clear what I'm trying to achieve! Thanks in advance for your time.
