Re: [Subclipse-dev] First "history as revision graph" screenshot

I like the idea of being able to select two nodes and make a patch or
open a diff viewer. And being able to do some other SVN stuff in the
graph. I don't know at the moment if Draw2d will be enough for these
tasks. However I have pointed, GEF is based on Draw2d so I'm going to
continue using it. If in the future I need GEF I won't have to make
several changes, I think.

Nevertheless my focus now is in the cache. I see the graph as a little
hack, just something to see what is happening.

And, Mark, ok, it would be better to start committing my work. I
created an account (username: "gimenete") some weeks ago in tigris.org

I have called the plugin "org.tigris.subversion.subclipse.graph". Do you agree?
