      Description

      It only takes a few changes to starteam for the checked out filesystem to become hopelessly stale. The only recovery option is to completely remove all files and startover. Either the code checking out is not handing the timestamps correctly, or starteam command line has problems keeping a checked out tree in sync (this more likely - as we also see this problem with AntHill when using it's incremental builder.) Possible fixes might be to detect 'unknown' status's and flush the checked out tree. Or try using the 2005 bco command instead of stcmd.

          The output of bco is different enough that it doesnt detect file changes. So the "stcmd" to "bco" thing is only really useful if you only always force builds (and don't mind that it always says No Changes.)

          I'm experimenting some more, trying to get this stuff to work correctly. Will keep this bug advised of developements

          Does anybody have a solution yet for this problem?
          I have the same problem too and it seems that starteam has sometimes troubles with updating the status of the files.
          Maybe this can be solved by using the update-status command (stcmd update-status ...) first before doing the checkout from starteam. I think this will solve most of the problems.

          I made a small modification to the maven-scm-provider-starteam plugin in my own continuum installation (version 1.0.3). In this modification i do a update-status command just before the checkout command (class StarteamUpdateCommand).
          Some small tests showed to me that it works.
          So, i hope that someone can pick up this issue and implement this change for future releases. When necessary, i can provide a patch.
