I'm looking, out of convienience, for a way to be notified automaticaly upon opening eclipse workspace with some source controled projects about changes that were made, if any.

The way I visualize it is:
1) I open Eclipse selecting workspace A
2) During boot-up work in eclipse for workspace A, it would find all repositories which have projects imported to this workspace A
3) The fetching/synchronizing work will be launched.
4) Upon finishing synching/fetching one of the Repo's, it will visualize the state of the project by the up/down arrows that are typical for displaying how far is the current branch from the remote.

Is there any option/3rd party plugin that can achieve what I described above, or something as close to that as possible?

Currently, I have to manualy either fetch all projects under source control when I open Eclipse (with some particular workspace) or use Team->Synchronize workspace option. But:
a) It is not convienient if I have to do it every day, and with every workspace I open.
b) The projects that are in some of the workspaces are not all under source control, so I can't just select all projects and hit Team->Synchronize. I have to select only projects that are under version control.

AFAIK such a feature doesn't exist

Thanks for the straight answer. Not good news, but better to have the bad news answer, than to have none.

Feel free to file a feature request in Bugzilla https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/enter_bug.cgi?product=EGit&component=UI
implementing auto-fetch shouldn't be hard
