Hi together,

I'm asking me, if Mylyn has created an abstraction for the available team providers? Mylyn sets for example for svn a commit message to the commit dialog, that describes the task the user is working on.

Is the interaction with other team provider abstracted?
I'm asking this because I want (at least) to listen when the user wants to commit something. I know how to do this for Subversive, but e.g. not how to do this for CVS. If Mylyn would provide an abstraction layer to those team providers I would only need to know about the Mylyn API.
I belief that there must be such a layer. I can't image that each task needs to know about CVS, SVN, (GIT?), ...

As mentioned I don't know if this exists, but I want to ask you. Maybe there is something and that might help me to reduce my work.
I hope this question is not that confusing.

I look forward to your suggestions.
Adrian

You can find a fairly simple abstraction for change set integration in the
org.eclipse.mylyn.team.ui and related plug-ins.

We are considering to implement a more generic team abstraction that extends
the platform team API as part of the Mylyn SCM project. You can find a bit
more background on bug 304957.

Meanwhile it would be great if you filed a bug against Mylyn to describe
your use-case and requirements. It's difficult to say how quickly the SCM
project will progress but it sounds like it would provide some of the APIs
you are looking for.
