  • In Progress: the demand is currently being handled

Using SVN

SVN commit messages

Each commit message must follow the syntax :
  • prefix with RCP: or TBX: or WEB: or DOC: or <plugin name>:
  • then insert the nature of the commit for example : "add", "fix" ...
  • then insert the message content and details
  • if you need more than one line to describe the entry, prefix the following lines with "#"


TBX: add an awesome new functionnality
TBX: fix the XXX import module
# the flow was not Groovy enough
# end of this entry
DOC: add documentation of the new functionnality

For further details about commit message syntax, follow those principles:
