In Polarion, a Timepoint sometimes means a milestone. If the project is using a trunk/branch policy, then when the PM defines a Timepoint in Administration, it is often necessary to create a branch at the same time. When the project reachs the timepoint, then the SCM administrator will merge the software assets from the branch to the trunk and close the branch. This code line policy is common in many development teams.
Our extension has the capability of creating a new branch automatically when an administrator creates a Timepoint. The new branch name is the name of the Timepoint, and it is based on the Head of the trunk. So it can save your time.
You can also use this extension as your starting point to extend its functionality.
