I don't know much about TFS except that it's painful to work with and causes trouble sometimes because of lost updates and failed connections. Then someone experienced has to clean up the mess and manually synchronise/merge all the different versions.
Now I came across this little helper. I thought that it would at least ease the usage of version control on my side, allowing me to use a more familiar version control system and toolset. Reading the home page didn't help me much, so I downloaded it and tried
it out. After a few error messages, I'm now at the point where git-tf actually tries to do something. but it says it "could not find a valid TFS Collection at" the URL I provided.
Again, the documentation is missing here. I've tried with the host name that I entered in the TFS connection dialog in Visual Studio. That's just a host name, no http or something. Then I put "http://" in
front of it
. That doesn't work. The one example includes a port number, other threads mention a path on that web server. How do I know what to enter here? Visual Studio can connect with just the host name, git-tf does not. Is it broken? Or not smart enough?
It would be very helpful if there were an actual explanation of the parameters I must specify and what they mean. My guesswork wasn't successful and now I'm stuck.
