Speaking as an interested idiot, what windows client are you using? I may give this a run-out later if I have time, but there seem to be a few client options about, with varying and mixed reviews. A good recommendation could save some time here. Also that promised guide sounds interesting
Have been trying to keep it as simple as possible.
So far so good, I have been able to compile both 1.77.1 Maintenance and 1.79 Master with no errors.
The tool I'm using is the GitHub native client for windows
. It's just a basic GUI pulled over a subset of the full Git installation.
I have replaced the default Shell in the client with the shell from AC's package in Options. That seems to work.
I have also updated .gitignore so that the commit requests don't pop up all the time.
I can now switch between branches in the tool, but I have to do a full compile each time I switch.
I still need to check if there are any adverse effects from switching between branches. I suspect that I should issue one of those clean up commands, but from what I understand that is an SVN command, so not sure how that is going to work. Still might be better to just use the Git CLI. More exploring this evening.
