I just type fast. :-) It's ok, I think there is a little bit of a
language barrier anyways, reading more probably wouldn't have helped.
We're on the same page, so it's pretty funny.=]
    I like Jesper's idea about a view better than a editable node, there
is a lot of info we need to convey when we update a bunch of files, it
deserves more realestate. Coincidence? =P

I'm a little torn about the team api stuff... on one hand, I respect
the need for repository tools (especially) to support older versions of
Eclipse. Applications that utilize them are quite often frozen at
certain versions, and those versions are a usually a major release or so
behind. I'd guess.

Good stuff takes time sometimes (or convoluted, [blank] stuff for that
matter).

On the other hand, if you contribute right to Team, it's better for
future development. Actually, everyone (the various different repository
plugin developers) could get together on Team, whip it out real good and
solid like, and the future would be bright indeed.

That's not gonna happen (life is too demanding, and consensous is hard
to achieve), but open, good hearted conversation between and about the
different repository philosophies/ideas/needs will help show the way to
an awe inspiring place.

You think Team is getting important now, just wait. Good foundatio-

Well, obviously time to get a blog. I'll try to be a little less,
whatever, and more dev. =]
