Quick Subversion trick:
I asked at the office today if anyone could figure out a method for doing a dry-run to see what files would be updated if you do an “svn update” from repository.
My colleague Mads came up with this:
jesper:test_project jesper$ svn merge –dry-run -r BASE:HEAD .
Brilliant! Now I can see which files will conflict or update before I pull newest version from repository. Now added as an alias:
I took a brief look at the Git manual. There is apparently no flag on ‘git pull’ that does a dry-run. Anyone knows if the same thing is possible with Git?
