I'm new to git and EGit. I just started working on a project in a public github repo. Most of what I needed can be done in the Git perspective. However, EGit doesn't support push --mirror and eclipse can't natively generate ed25519 ssh keys for preferred secure connection to github. I tried the gonsole plugin, but it is out of date.

An integrated, fully functional git console would be nice to have and eliminate the need for installing and learning external tools like Git for Windows.

You may consider to file feature requests for the features you are missing.

push --mirror would first need to be implemented in JGit and then exposed in EGit.

JGit has a command line implementation, exposing the commands implemented there
(only a subset of what JGit can do as a library) shouldn't be too hard. AFAIK that's
what the gonsole plugin did. This wouldn't give you push --mirror since that's not
yet implemented in JGit.
