Hi all

Using latest nightly EGit 0.8.0.201005311531 and JGit 0.8.0.201005300828

Is it possible (yet) to see the git history of a folder? It currently looks like it's not.

Regards
Kay

Works here. You may be looking at a place where there is only the initial
contribution visible when a path filter is applied. EGit does not support
grafts yet, which means that the history may be much shorter in EGit than in
C Git.

See http://wiki.eclipse.org/EGit/User_Guide#History_View_Configu ration

- select the folder you want to see the history for e.g. in package explorer
- Show In > History should open the git history view
- ensure that none of the filter toggle buttons is down [1]

Making the history command available through ShowIn only is *extremely* confusing and just plain wrong. The ShowIn menu section isn't even shown in Eclipse's Java EE perspective so I spent an hour trying to find this!

Bad design isn't justified by documenting it in the User Guide. Any team provider in Eclipse should try to follow the precedent of the existing CVS and SVN providers when possible. If someone think they are smarter than that, then please put work in to synchronize changes with the CVS and SVN providers as well, and relieve the rest of us from hide-and-seek games.

I have no problem with history being available in ShowIn also, but removing it from the Team menu will confuse users forever. The person behind this patch needs to step up and defend this change.

I agree that we should show that menu item in the context menu again.

Huh, you are very passionate? But I do not believe that someone thinks he or
she is smarter than anybody else. At least I do not see anything that
indicates that, do you? I believe that he or she just was not aware of the
fact that the ShowIn menu section is not shown in some perspectives.

There 's an open enhancement request for this menu item now.
