Re: [Subclipse-dev] alternative affected paths panel for resource history view

From: Eugene Kuleshov <eu_at_md.pp.ru>

  I've implemented this functionality and attached patch at

  There are some restructuring in HistoryView to make
ChangePathsTableProvider selectable. I also made
ChangePathsTableProvider true viewer (so it probably should be renamed
to ChangePathsTableViewer).
  This patch is using same icons as pending view, so these icons may
need to be triked (e.g. to use the same overlays as the Sync view).
  Another thing is that to make data more observable I choose not to
compress folders with only one child and also remove all folders with no
childrens like those that appears on additions. This is of course on the
best effort because LogEntryChangePath does not provide info about
resource type (e.g. folder or file or properties, see
ChangePathsTreeContentProvider.getGroup() and
ChangePathsTreeViewer.ChangePathLabelProvider.getImage()), but I still
think that such representation is quite handy.
