Hi. I'm very interested in the Project Explorer hierarchical projects mode that debuted in Mars. However when I enable it, if the project location is not on the workspace (which is the case for all Git projects I have), an annoying suffix is added to the label of the project, the "(in <....>)". This is very un-interesting information for me, and clutters up my Project Explorer. Is there a way to disable it? See pic for example:

Hi,
The "in ..." suffix is only shown if the project name doesn't match the host folder name. In most user-cases that were used in order to drive the development of this feature (Maven and PDE projects), not highlighting the case of a folder not matching project name quickly became necessary in order to avoid user confusions (the Hierarchical layout makes users assumes it's like the file system, so there is need to show filesystem names somewhere).
Unfortunately, there is now way to tweak this label provider once hierarchical project layout is enabled. Patches on this topic would be welcome. http://git.eclipse.org/c/platform/eclipse.platform.ui.git/tree/bundles/org.eclipse.ui.navigator.resources/src/org/eclipse/ui/internal/navigator/resources/nested/NestedProjectsLabelProvider.java
