I really, really like the recent additions to Mylyn but there are still 2 issues that force me to occasionally switch to my web browser.

1. Editing an existing comment - I'm not sure if this is a Mylyn or Jira connector issue but I cannot edit existing comments in the eclipse task editor. I often update comments, adding extra info as it becomes available. The web interface supports this so I often have to leave eclipse to update comments in my browser.

2. Build job console output - I have the refresh preference set to its one minute minimum but I have no patience. I want to see the progress of a job I'm running so again I have to leave eclipse to view the real-time console output in Hudson's web interface.

Can anyone comment as to whether these are both indeed Mylyn issues and, if so, whether there are plans to address them in the future?

Thanks,
Craig Foote

AFAIK, this is not supported by the JIRA connector. I would recommend
contacting the Atlassian support channels for help:
