How to merge two Subversion commits into one
I use a GUI program to interact with our SVN repository. There's a lot of times when I go to commit ten different files, but accidentally only select one and commit it. I then have to make another commit with all my other changes.
Is there a way to merge those two "duplicate" commits together into a single commit with a single message in the tracking program?
It's pretty trivial, but I am curious whether it's possible.
It doesn't sound like they're "duplicate" commits.
It sounds like you have 10 files that you commit separately in two commits (if I understand correctly).
I don't know if you can "un-commit" the first file, but you could do another commit to "revert" the repo to where it was before you made the accidental commit. This would allow you to commit all ten files in the same revision.
I don't know how to do it with a GUI/IDE.
From the command line you could do it like this:
accidentally commit file A in revision 5000
create a patch to revert the commit:
svn diff -r 5000:4999 > revert.patch
apply the patch:
patch -p0 < revert.patch
now your repo is where it was before the accidental commit
now you can commit all ten files together
There are probably many ways (some easier) to do this. I'm sure this answer will be down-voted!
