I just ran:

tla undo
{make changes, review}
tla commit

And of course it went and gobbled up the log for my previous (was
supposed to be "undo"ne change). Which didn't even have a subject line
filled in.

Feature request: can tla undo/redo include the in-progress log file (if
any is there).

So I tried to edit the file, to have a proper Summary: but alas,
the changed summary doesn't show up in tla logs -scD.

So I tried to fix the md5sum, and still summary.

Is there a way to hack this summary in, or revert it?


This has also been mentioned in the past. Someone else wanted the logfile to be removed after undo. I think aba/fai might do it. But I would *not* try to edit the old summary at all. That is very close to changing history, and doing that is considered **bad*** mojo in arch. It's possible, I think everyone who has used arch has tried, (including myself :). But it *really* isn't worth the effort. As a side note, tla will let you commit an empty changeset. So you could always just commit again, only this time give the real summary, and a note that says this log is actually for the previous one.

It's a lot cleaner, and doesn't involve hacking into any other files. This is especially true with signed archives. as you have to regen the signature as well. It just gets messy.
