I have a plugin available that provides very basic Eclipse integration for a few command-line Git operations that are not yet supported by EGit. This is mostly an experiment and a learning opportunity for me. But I also dislike having to switch context from Eclipse to a shell and then back again just to run a Git operation.

Right now it supports the following:

Basic SVN bridging: svn rebase, dcommit, fetch, rebase --local, info, as well as mapping SHAs to SVN revs and vice-versa

Basic bundle operations: creating a bundle file given two refs (branch, tag, SHA), fetching from a given bundle file, pulling from a given bundle file

Basic Bisect: start, good, bad, reset

Pruning obsolete remote references on a given remote

Creating lightweight tags

I'll be adding more over time, and of course also removing any feature once JGit/EGit supports it. Eventually there will probably be nothing left other than SVN bridging, which I assume JGit will never support but which many Git users require.

The repository is on github: eclipse-git-extensions.git

I don't have a plugin download site yet, but any developer can easily build it with the 'Standard' Eclipse bundle and Java 7.
