P4DTI issue job000128

TitleCan't replicate fix to deleted changelist
Assigned userGareth Rees
DescriptionThe replicator can't replicate a fix to a deleted changelist, and this gets it into a right tangle: it can't continue replicating.
Luckily this is a rare occurrence: normally the deletion of a changelist is replicated to the defect tracker, so the situation doesn't arise. It's only if you delete a changelist and simultaneously cause the replicator to replicate a fix for that changelist back from the defect tracker that this can happen.
AnalysisThe replicator needs to notice this case when replicating fixes from the defect tracker to Perforce and at least it should avoid falling over by catching the error. What's the right thing to do here?
Maybe we shouldn't replicate fixes to pending changelists? We should at least make it clear in the DT interface that the changelist is pending, otherwise it looks like it's been done (see job000129 for the latter issue).
