Hi Tim,

Not sure I understand exactly what you need but a few thoughts.

Correct. I don't think iForGit is the right hammer unless you want to use it for ongoing management of classic source files in git.

Have you looked at any utilities like winmerge or windiff to identify changes ? These can help you determine differences between files in 2 directories.

Once current files are identified, iIf you're using an iProject you can probably just overlay the PC files on the workstation in the project and push them to the IBMi system as part of the iProject mechanism.

subject: Re: Rdi - update workspace with more recent source from

Thanks Jack,

I did have a look at the iForGit. The issue I have is (probably) a one time thing. Most of the source code is in IFS but in this case I inherited an older RDi workspace that has this project in it. I think it's a little out of date and out of sync with the source on the IBMi. I could just recreate the project using the IBMi source but I was hoping RDi had a better way to load or import a source member individually.

If it's in the IFS you can revision control the whole project.
You can also mount the IFS directories on your local disk using SSHFS
and operate revision control in that fashion.
And you can use iForGit for the OFS portions and separately check in
the project data from your RDi workspace in another dir and use the
same origin repository as the main repo.
There's all sorts of way to do this.
Rule 1: Forget the classic inflexibility of IBM i development. Open
Source has opened up our legacy box.

Hey Jack!! I wonder if I see a bit of a challenge here. Tim said he
is using an RDi project - the challenge might be integrating that with git.
Richard talks about his iForGit can work with RDi, but with projects?

Just askin'!!
