git-gui: Stop deleting gitk preferences.
[git/git.git] / TODO
1 Items outstanding:
2
3 * Add file to .gitignore or info/excludes.
4
5 * Populate the pull menu with local branches.
6
7 * Make use of the new default merge data stored in repo-config.
8
9 * Checkout a different local branch.
10
11 * Push any local branch to a remote branch.
12
13 * Merge any local branches through a real merge UI.
14
15 * Allow user to define keyboard shortcuts for frequently used fetch
16 or merge operations. Or maybe just define a keyboard shortcut
17 for default fetch/default merge of current branch is enough;
18 but I do know a few users who merge a couple of common branches
19 also into the same branch so one default isn't quite enough.
20
21 * Better organize fetch/push/pull console windows.
22
23 * Clone UI (to download a new repository).
24
25 * Remotes editor (for .git/config format only).
26
27 * Show a shortlog of the last couple of commits in the main window,
28 to give the user warm fuzzy feelings that we have their data
29 saved. Actually this may be the set of commits not yet in
30 the upstream (aka default merge branch remote repository).
31
32 * GUI configuration editor for options listed in
33 git.git/Documentation/config.txt. Ideally this would
34 parse that file and generate the options dialog from
35 the documentation itself, and include the help text
36 from the documentation as part of the UI somehow.

38 Known bugs:
39
40 * git-gui sometimes just closes on Windows with no error message.
41 I'm not sure what the problem is here. I suspect the wish
42 process is just terminating due to a segfault or something,
43 as the do_quit proc in git-gui doesn't run. It often seems to
44 occur while writing a commit message in the buffer. Odd.
