What's the best solution here?

I have 1 VB project in VSS thats ticking along nicely. I've just done a chunk of work that changed code in 4 of the forms. It now turns out that I cannot release this work for a few weeks, but I have some more work that needs coding and releasing asap.

What is the best solution here? Please help.


RE: What's the best solution here?

I don't know about the best solution, but one idea is to create a separate user and get the entire project to another directory. Then you can make those changes and check them in as that user, and when you are done, check in the original changes from the original user.

You can also just save a copy of the files that changed somewhere on your hard drive and then undo the checkout. After you finish the other changes, you just check out the files again and move the backed up versions in. If you don't create a different user, this will make merging more difficult, though.

You might also consider branching the project and then making the other changes in the branch.

I hope I understood your question correctly. smile

RE: What's the best solution here?

yeah thanks. you do understand the question properly. I think I may do a combination of your suggestions - save the copy files, undo checkout, branch and merge the new ones in later.
