Re: [Subclipse-dev] GSoc - Revision Graph

You need to use Reply to All so that mails go to the dev@ list.

You should be looking at GEF/Draw2D for this. EMF and GMF would be
overkill and drag in dependencies we do not want.

For svn log, keep in mind that we run a JavaHL API that gives us that
data in Java. So do not think you have to process the log output from
a file or something.

The main part of this task will probably be defining the algorithms
you are going to use to determine the branches and tags for a given
item.
