svn compare vs svn sync ... and diffj [message #797458] Mon, 13 February 2012 14:11

The svn compare view is completely different to the svn sync view, as in the compare, the list of differing files is in a panel _on_top_ of the main compare panel. Thus, both the file list and the main compare panel have to share the screen height with each other.

Personaly I would prefer to have the file list _at_the_side_ of the main compare panel, so both could make use of the whole screen height.

As this is not only a visibility thing, but an outcome of somehow completely different programming for compare and for sync (not much code reuse), this "problem" is coupled with a feature integration, I am thinking about:

I want to integrate "diffj" into eclipse/subversive, so that one, after seeing a list of differing files, can activate a filter, so he only sees those files, which have "real" differences in therms of diffj.

Now I wonder, if other people also dislike the not-so-conform svn compare view, and if there are plans to reprogram it, so that is is closer to svn sync (as for example cvs compare is close to cvs sync).

If so, I could probably save the ugly work of double implement the diffj filter, once for the svn compare, and once for the svn sync.

Thanks for answers,

BTW: Is this the right place for this question, or should I go to
(which somehow looks a bit dead, as last post was in Dec 2011)
Or is there some other hidden place, I should know about?
