I made three (I think) changes in Paratext on Windows this AM. Then I
closed Paratext and went to Bibledit Desktop for Windows and selected
Tools > Send/Receive > Synchronize with Paratext Now.

While it was trying to sync with Paratext, I received over 100 e-mail
saying "Failed to merge your changes".

Attached is the Journal. Apparently I had it set to sync every 5
minutes, which I've now changed to only Manually.

I do not know why it failed to merge the changes. Nor do I know if I
need to do something – the ones I scanned look OK to me.

Should I open an issue for this?

Thanks!

Hello Eric,

The best could be to just open an issue about it, and attach the contents of a few of those emails as well.

One of the options would be that perhaps there's interference in case the Paratext sync runs simultaneously with the Cloud sync.

Teus.

Thank you very much, Teus. I have started this issue: https://github.com/bibledit/cloud/issues/780.

I really appreciate all your help and hope that I soon will be able to not bother you so much.

One possible bit of additional information is that it is possible that a sync with the server was attempted at a point when the server was down for a few minutes for software updates and a reboot. If that was the cause of the flurry of failure messages, then it should have corrected itself with the next sync after the server was up again.

Hi Michael,

If the server was down at some point, then Bibledit on Windows would have failed to synchronize its contents, and would have retried, as you suggested. And Eric scanned a few of those chapters that failed to merge, and they looked good. So in the end it looks good. But it should not send all those emails in the first place....

Teus.
