[Subclipse-dev] Extending the Commit Dialog

im a Java developer, currently working on a Project to integrate a
Bug-Tracking-System into Eclipse by writing a plugin.

The basic idea is to extend the Commit-Dialog with additional
UI-Components, so the developers can easily choose a Ticket that belongs
to the current checkin. By convention, the number of the ticket number
has to be part of the commit message, so the plugin is responsible for
prefixing the original message with this number. (Currently, the ticket
number has to be added manually to the message). Since there are
diffrent types of repositories used here, it had to work with subclipse
as well as with the eclipse internal cvs-plugin.

I started looking into it, my goal was to avoid patching subclipse or
the cvs-plugin to stay open for new versions. Finally found two ways to
archive this, but i'm not realy happy with them, since both involve
coping code of hole classes from the underlying Plugins, wich again
might cause problems in case of newer versions.

Since i would like to provide a clean solution, I'm writing to this list
in the hope that someone can point me to a propper way to integrate
additional components into the commit dialog. I could not find any
extention point which would serve this purpose, but maybe some of you
have any Ideas?

Thanks in advance,
