I see you are with HP.  How extensive does hp use ccm?  Are there other
source control systems in use?  

We have been using ccm for 5 years and question if it is the right
source control system, and we certainly have less development demands
than hp would?

Subject: [OpenCM] Parallel warning message

Hi all, 

Hoping someone has a good solution to what I would think is a typical
problem.  Let's say we start two releases, stemming from the same
baseline project.  The two releases are not related to each other in any
way, at least not for a long while.  In other words, tasks for one
release will not be added to the other release, and vice versa.  This
situation is going to create a lot of parallels.  Everytime someone
checks out a file for the second release, it is creating a parallel.  At
that point, the paralllel warning message pops up, as expected.  So my
question is, how do we resolve this parallel, or at least get rid of the
warning?  If a warning pops up all the time, the developers will get
used to it and we don't want them to get conditioned to ignore the
warnings.  Any ideas what to do here?  Is there some other recommended
process so that we don't get parallels in the first place?

Second question, does anyone know what happened to the CM Synergy yahoo
group?  I thought it got merged with cmresource.info, but that page is
not available.
