so6 questions
By reading the Quick Start guide, I've got some questions about so6.

I've been using Continuus tool and I'm trying to make some comparisons with so6. I don't want to start a flame about configuration management tools, I'm just wondering how to use so6.

1) Concerning local WS, the fact that a commit cannot be done unless the localWS is in sync means to me that personal WS is not managed under configuration management. This is feature may be laking I think. It's very useful to be able to reproduce areas of developers and permit them to commit what they actually validated under their personal WS.

Under continuus, developers are responsible for testing their changes under their local area with the environment they got at the sync. Then once commited, the manager is in charge of merges. That way, integration of SW parts is a process is clearly separated from coding/testing of local changes.

2) How are implemented releases? With tags?

3) What about the management of objects under configuration?

4) How branches are managed?

Thx in advance for your replies.
