Ah, so the key is to use an iProject...

I need to find time to play with this...

Hi Charles
The i Projects store the member description text in metadata which is
also
stored in Git.
There is an .ibmi folder in the root directory of the project and in it
there is a folder for each SRCPF and in that folder there is a file
named
<member name>.properties for each member that has non-default properties
(i.e. a non-blank member description
It will contain a line
com.ibm.etools.iseries.projects.core\:textDescription=text description
for
COMPILE CL

If you are using Java we have an API to read this. If not, it is pretty
simple to parse.

Edmund,

We'd love to move from SVN to Git...

However, we've got a homegrown utility that transfers from the SVN
working
copy on our PC to the i. One thing it does is read the custom SVN
property, MEMBER_DESCRIPTION, for an object and updates the source
member
text.

Git doesn't support custom properties that we could find...

How do you deal with text for a source member which then becomes the
*PGM
object description text?

Is our only choice to add
ctl-opt text('My program description')
or the CL equivalent to every RPG/CL program?

Thanks!
Charles
