I am evaluating Confluence for our technical documentation and am looking at the process governance around it. Currently we have multiple development running concurrently. This is handled within our current CMS using a branch/merge (of questionable robustness). In Confluence I have been looking at copy space as the branch and then ...... theres the problem - how can I merge two spaces?
Any help suggestions in this area much appreciated
Unfortunately, this function isn't available yet, but we have a Feature Request to reach this function of Merge Spaces. You can vote to raise its popularity and add yourself as watcher too, if you like to know how this Feature is going. https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CONF-7024. Anyway, let's see if anyone has a valid workaround to be shared.
It sounds as if you're looking for sophisticated version control, with branching and merging of content for different versions of a product perhaps. If so, then the Scroll Versions plugin sounds good for you. Version 1 of the plugin is available now, and goes a good part of the way already:
The K15t Software team are planning and designing for an enhanced release of the plugin. It's worth getting in touch with them to see if the update will meet your needs. We're waiting for the update too, as we need the ability to manage multiple versions and variants of our documentation.
