NAME

        aegis develop end - complete development of a change

SYNOPSIS

        aegis -Develop_End [ option...  ]
        aegis -Develop_End -List [ option...  ]
        aegis -Develop_End -Help

DESCRIPTION

        The aegis -Develop_End command is used to notify aegis of the
        completion of the development of a change.

        This command checks that you have successfully completed an 'aegis
        -Build' command since any change source file was edited.  See aeb(1)
        for more information.

        This command checks that you have successfully completed an 'aegis
        -DIFFerence' command since any change source file was edited.  See
        aed(1) for more information.

        This command checks that you have successfully completed an 'aegis
        -Test' command since the last successful build, unless the change has
        a test_exempt attribute, or the build command is "exit 0".  This
        command checks that you have successfully completed an 'aegis -Test
        -BaseLine' command, unless the change has a test_baseline_exempt
        attribute.  This command checks that you have successfully completed
        an 'aegis -Test -REGression' command, unless the change has a
        test_regression_exempt attribute.  See aet(1) and aecattr(5) for more
        information.

        If the change includes the project configuration file, this command
        checks project file names, to make sure they conform to the
        maximum_filename_length and posix_filename_charset field settings.
        See aepconf(5) for more information.

        Successful execution of the command advances the change from the being
        developed state to the being reviewed state, by default.  The
        develop_end_action project attribute controls which of the following 3
        paths are taken.  boxwid = 1 down S30: box invis "develop_end_action:"
        "goto_awaiting_review" S31: box "being" "developed" arrow " develop"
        ljust " end" ljust S32: box "awaiting" "review" arrow " review" ljust
        " begin" ljust S33: box "being" "reviewed" arrow " review" ljust "
        pass" ljust S34: box "awaiting" "integration"

        S20: box invis "develop_end_action:" "goto_being_reviewed"  with .w at
        S30.e+(0.5,0) S21: box "being" "developed" arrow " develop" ljust "
        end" ljust down 1.5 S22: box "being" "reviewed" arrow " review" ljust
        " pass" ljust S23: box "awaiting" "integration" box invis "(This is
        the default.)"

        S10: box invis "develop_end_action:" "goto_awaiting_integration"
             with .w at S20.e+(0.5,0) S11: box "being" "developed" arrow "
        develop" ljust " end" ljust down 2.5 S12: box "awaiting" "integration"
        Please Note: the third alternative, skipping reviews altogether,
        should only be used for single person projects.  All self-respecting
        commercial enterprise will avoid this alternative.

        Because branches may extend for many months or even years, it is
        common for the user who initiated the branch to be no longer with the
        project, or even the company.  For this reason, project administrators
        may end the development of branches.  For normal changes in this
        situation, use the aechown(1) command.

        If the project configuration file has specified the presence of
        Signed-off-by: lines, a suitable line containing the current user's
        email address will be appended to the change description.

        The change is no longer considered assigned to the developer.

   Branches
        If you get an error message telling you that you can't end a branch
        because a file needs to be merged, see the Branching chapter of the
        Aegis User Guide for more information.

        While changes and branches are almost identical in the ways you
        manipulate them within Aegis, actual file changes must always be done
        in a change.  Thus, it is necessary to create a new change on the
        branch and do a cross-branch grandparent merge before you will be able
        to develop-end a branch which is giving you this error.

   Notification
        On successful completion of the command, the develop_end_notify_-
        command field of the project attributes file is run, if set.  See
        aepa(1) and aepattr(5) for more information.

        If your project has configured the develop_end_action in the project
        confifuration file to goto_awaiting_integration then the review_pass_-
        notify_command in the project attributes file is run instead, if set.

OPTIONS

        The following options are understood:

        -Change number
                This option may be used to specify a particular change within
                a project.  See aegis(1) for a complete description of this
                option.

        -Help
                This option may be used to obtain more information about how
                to use the aegis program.

        -List
                This option may be used to obtain a list of suitable subjects
                for this command.  The list may be more general than expected.

        -Project name
                This option may be used to select the project of interest.
                When no -Project option is specified, the AEGIS_PROJECT
                environment variable is consulted.  If that does not exist,
                the user's $HOME/.aegisrc file is examined for a default
                project field (see aeuconf(5) for more information).  If that
                does not exist, when the user is only working on changes
                within a single project, the project name defaults to that
                project.  Otherwise, it is an error.

        -REAson text
                This option may be used to attach a comment to the change
                history generated by this command.  You will need to use
                quotes to insulate the spaces from the shell.

        -Signed_Off_By
                This option may be used to have a Signed-off-by: line appended
                to the change set description.

        -No_Signed_Off_By
                This option may be used to prevent a Signed-off-by: line from
                being appended to the change set description.

        -TERse
                This option may be used to cause listings to produce the bare
                minimum of information.  It is usually useful for shell
                scripts.

        -Verbose
                This option may be used to cause aegis to produce more output.
                By default aegis only produces output on errors.  When used
                with the -List option this option causes column headings to be
                added.

        -Wait   This option may be used to require Aegis commands to wait for
                access locks, if they cannot be obtained immediately.
                Defaults to the user's lock_wait_preference if not specified,
                see aeuconf(5) for more information.

        -No_Wait
                This option may be used to require Aegis commands to emit a
                fatal error if access locks cannot be obtained immediately.
                Defaults to the user's lock_wait_preference if not specified,
                see aeuconf(5) for more information.

        See also aegis(1) for options common to all aegis commands.

        All options may be abbreviated; the abbreviation is documented as the
        upper case letters, all lower case letters and underscores (_) are
        optional.  You must use consecutive sequences of optional letters.

        All options are case insensitive, you may type them in upper case or
        lower case or a combination of both, case is not important.

        For example: the arguments "-project, "-PROJ" and "-p" are all
        interpreted to mean the -Project option.  The argument "-prj" will not
        be understood, because consecutive optional characters were not
        supplied.

        Options and other command line arguments may be mixed arbitrarily on
        the command line, after the function selectors.

        The GNU long option names are understood.  Since all option names for
        aegis are long, this means ignoring the extra leading '-'.  The
        "--option=value" convention is also understood.

RECOMMENDED ALIAS

        The recommended alias for this command is
        csh%    alias aede 'aegis -de \!* -v'
        sh$     aede(){aegis -de "$@" -v}

ERRORS

        It is an error if the change is not assigned to the current user.
        It is an error if The change is not in the being developed state.
        It is an error if there has been no successful 'aegis -Build' command
        since a change file was last edited.
        It is an error if there has been no successful 'aegis -DIFFerence'
        command since a change file was last edited.
        It is an error if there has been no successful 'aegis -Test' command
        since a change file was last edited.
        It is an error if there has been no successful 'aegis -Test -BaseLine'
        command since a change file was last edited.

        It is an error if an read-only file is still copied into the change.
        Read-only files are to insulate a change from the baseline during
        development; they must be removed before development may end.

EXIT STATUS

        The aegis command will exit with a status of 1 on any error.  The
        aegis command will only exit with a status of 0 if there are no
        errors.

ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES

        See aegis(1) for a list of environment variables which may affect this
        command.  See aepconf(5) for the project configuration file's
        project_specific field for how to set environment variables for all
        commands executed by Aegis.
