[eclipse-pmc] API change: Deprecate old file modification validator getter on RepositoryProvider

Earlier in 3.3 M6, we added the capability to the validate-edit mechanism in Eclipse to allow headless clients to indicate to the valildateEdit hook that prompting is OK if the hook has access to a UI context ( As part of this, we deprecated the IFileModificationValidator interface and created an abstract FileModificationValidator class. However, we neglected to deprecate the getter method on RepositoryProvider so clients are faced with a none deprecated method that returns a deprecated interface. We are seeking approval to deprecate this method and add a new method that returns the new type.

Bug 176992 RepositoryProvider#getFileModificationValidator returns deprecated interface

Benefits: Clients will better understand that we have transitioned to a new validateEdit API

Risk: none
