I can give better wordy description...

I have a standard IBMi RDi project with several IBMi source physical files defined. There are a couple of hundred source members in those source files. For this problem, there's no IFS involved. These have at some stage been pushed to a library on the IBMi. However, this workspace is out of date i.e some source files in the IBMi library contain members with newer change dates. I want to sync these so that the latest version is imported into my RDi project from the IBMi. Essentially I want to compare my RDi project with the associated IBMi library contents. Now, what I can do is push the project files to a different IBMi library and do a compare and then figure out what to do but I was hoping there was an invisible feature to do this.

Can you draw a diagram in ASCII of what you're trying to do here?

If it's just a question of "how do I get one more source member into the
IFS to join its friends?" the answer is CPYTOSTMF.
If the question is, "I have a mixed project, how do I get a source member
into the RDi workspace to join the stuff in the IFS folder?" ask on the
WDSCI list where the RDi team hangs out: wdsci-l@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

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it's a little out of date and out of sync with the source on the IBMi.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
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
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'!!

This is called "revision control" and that's what Git is for.

- If you move to working in the IFS, it's a no-brainer.
- If you want to stay in source physical files in the OFS, then
<https://www.iforgit.com/> can offer you Git revision control on

I've got a source file on the IBMi with some source members that have
been edited separately, and more recently, than the copy I have in a
project in rdi. Is there an automated way to update the local source
file in a project from the remote copy, if the remote has a newer
