Shelving feedback

I was brave and just tried out the new Shelve functionality... seems to
work well, but I didn't realise that when you unshelve it will unshelve
into the active changelist, rather than use or reconstitute the old
one... so my files got a bit mixed up...

To prevent this problem, I think when Unshelve is executed the user
should be asked to choose or create the changelist to unshelve into.

Cheers,
N.

Hello Nathan,

should be asked to choose or create the changelist to unshelve into.


Good idea. JIRA request please?
