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.
