17:46 slack1256 How to maintain branches when the main one has put tags the branches don't have?
17:47 slack1256 the branches usually don't pull patches they don't need, but if the want the new patches they will pull the tag (which depend on the patches they didn't pull)
17:47 slack1256 so the local patches of the branch can get conflics.
17:50 sm slack1256: avoid long-lived branches that span tags, perhaps
17:51 sm are these release branches or something ? and you want to apply bugfixes ?
17:52 slack1256 Well, is a dotfiles repository shared between 4-5 machines. every machines has it local repo with machine specific changes
17:52 sm why is it pulling the tag ? do all patches following a tag depend on that tag ?
17:54 sm tags aside, that situation sounds a bit tricky unless you are quite careful to keep the machine-specific patches from interacting
17:54 slack1256 the thing is that there isn't a main repo, we just 'get' the oldest machine repo, and avoid machine specific patches
17:55 slack1256 but we should set a core repo without any specific patches.
17:55 Heffalump ok, so the problem is that tags depend on everything including the machine specific ones
17:55 Heffalump yeah
17:55 slack1256 that way even the tags wouldn't be a problem. right?
17:56 Heffalump if you tag in that core repo, yes
17:56 Heffalump if you tag in the machine specific repo then the tag will depend on machine specific patches
17:56 slack1256 OK. that's what I am going to do.
17:57 slack1256 thanks guys
17:57 sm I guess you keep the machine-specific stuff in different files or at least different sections of the files
