Error description

  • When merging source-controlled directories in an IBM Rational
    ClearCase web view, the "merge search" process will incorrectly
    list a file added in the source branch as a deleted element. The
    directory merge is in fact completed correctly, but the
    newly-added file will not appear until the view is manually
    updated.
    
    Additionally, the newly added file will appear as the /main/0
    version unless the "source branch" was /main. A second "merge
    search" process will be needed to merge the file contents.
