[Subclipse-dev] Re: [mylar-dev] release status

Mark,

  Apparently my patch introduced build time dependency on Subclipse
classes which is not acceptable for Mylar. So, we now wonder if you can
take a contribution of a new (optional) Subclipse feature, that will
have dependency on Mylar?

  This feature will be responsible for managing Mylar's change sets and
linking Subclipse's own artifacts (change sets, files and history
entries) with tasks in Mylar. Basically there is two classes that need
to be packaged into a separate feature that will have dependencies on
Mylar and Subclipse will get a build time dependency on Mylar. I and Mik
can contribute this code, but we'll need your help to integrate it with
Subclipse's build.

  What do you think?

  regards,
  Eugene

PS: worth to mention that Subversive folks provide such integration on
their side...
