they will fix it!


------------------
have now reproduced the behaviour you are reporting and I can confirm that the current behaviour is incorrect.

A manual XMI import of a version controlled package file, should still move aside the child packages and restore them once the import is complete.  I will implement a correction to this behaviour as soon as possible.
------------------

But I am still surprised, that 'I' wrote that bug report.
This is a real major problem! Isn't it?

Well done Michael!

I'm not surprised. Yes, it is a major problem, if you are using VC and have your setup. But Sparx cannot repair the way EA works unless someone tells them there is a problem - and characterizes the problem in enough detail to recognize and verify that it is a problem. That's where you came into the picture.

Not everything can be noticed in testing. In situations like VC, it is easy to miss something that is configuration dependent, even to a small extent.

Thanks for seeing this through, and for taking the time to work through the bug report.

No, you can't have it!

Yes, of course.
I just wonder that nobody else reacted on that problem before me.

I mean, I am not the only person using VC and EA.
And this is such a fundamental step, that anybody else should have found AND reported the problem before me.
That's what makes me wonder.

Nevertheless, they fix it.
And that's it, what counts.
