Sebastian Bergmann's Blog:
Using Bazaar for PHPUnit Development
Jan 02, 2009 @ 14:05:02

In this new post to his blog Sebastian Bergmann looks at how to use Bazaar (a dstributed version control system) in his development the PHPUnit tool.

Last December, when I was in Australia and started to work on the Object_Freezer code, I "dived into" Bazaar (bzr) and learned the value of local commits as they allow me to work offline, e.g. when disconnected during travel. Thanks to bzr-svn, I can now work offline for PHPUnit development as well.

He shares his setup - a local shared repository for branching/trunk work and a linked checkout of PHPUnit between Bazaar and Subversion. This allows him to commit locally with Bazaar and, when he gets back online, issue a "merge" command to make the push back out to Subversion's remote repository.
