Diff using VSS
We are using Visual SourceSafe for version control and have it integrated with FogBUGZ. Unfortunately, the diffs produced by FogBUGZ after checking in files are very difficult to read - there is no context, e.g. surrounding code, given for the changes.
As far as I know FogBugz is basically at the mercy of VSS when it comes to deciding on source code display.
Thanks for the response. I guess one way of showing context would be to grab the previous version of the file and the current version of the file and then to display a few lines above and below. It wouldn't fit everyone's needs every time, since there's no way of knowing how much context is appropriate, but it would be a big improvement over the way it works now.
I didn't mean to imply that VSS does not, I haven' t used VSS, I use CVS, and meant to imply two things: first, I'm guessing VSS lets you do the same thing, and secondly, if not, maybe switching to CVS would meet your needs. (Or, for that matter, Perforce or Vault, I've heard those two are better than VSS, but I don't mean to start a religious war.)
