Share meta-data on dual boot machine [message #3527] Sat, 16 June 2007 20:05 Go to next message

Hi!

Does Mylyn store in its meta-data (.mylar folder) absolute paths or
anything else that would prevent me from sharing the same meta-data
folder across Windows and Linux on a dual boot machine?

Since I'm using practically only cross-platform apps (Firefox,
Thunderbird, Pidgin, Eclipse etc.), I'm trying to create a set up that
allows me to work with the same data no matter which OS I'm currently
running.

I know that Eclipse workspaces can't be shared, but what about Mylyn data?

Damn, it still takes effort to say Mylyn instead of Mylar :)

No full paths are stored in the task and context metadata folder (now in
<workspace>/.metadata/.mylyn). So yes, you can share these and you'll
find a preference for moving the directory to an external location on
the Task List preferences page:
