There is too much in this thread to respond to individually. I will just
say that I agree with Eugene. Most of the improvements that are being
sought could most likely be best offered by continuing to improve the
Synchronize view with features like Commit Sets. In this particular case,
the Outgoing Commit Sets feature, as implemented by CVS, provides what is
being asked for and probably does it in a better way.
It sounds like the biggest problem is that Commit Sets are not API, even
in Eclipse 3.2. So we need to either base our implementation on Internal
code from Eclipse.org, or we have to use their code as a model for
creating our own version of the same feature.
In a past discussion on this feature, it sounded like at least 2 of our
committers have already implemented this feature using the internal API.
Hopefully they will have some time to join a discussion on what they have
learned and what they think the final approach should be. Most likely, I
will not be participating in the initial coding of this feature, but I
will certainly help with testing and talking it through, and I would
strongly encourage those that want to work on this feature to do so.
I guess in my ideal scenario, we could copy the needed Eclipse internal
classes into our namespace and implement them ourselves. Ideally this
might even allow us to provide the feature for Eclipse 3.0, but if that is
not possible, then I think we just need to drop support for 3.0 and move
to 3.1. Now that 1.0.x is branched, I think we can do that if we have to.
Adding a feature like this would be worth it.
