thank you very much. This was exactly what we were looking for. As we
found no Patch operation in the .op source folder and no "Create Patch"
in the Team Menu, we assumed it was not implemented yet. We didn't
consider checking the history view.
So, sorry for my superfluous question, we should have checked the user
guide better. Thank you again.

I am a developer from an eclipse project that uses eclipse team
providers to allow tracking source code change information and
attaching it to the CASE workflow. Our project works by having adapters
for all major team providers (currently CVS and SVN). The adapters
automatically query those team providers to create (unified diff)
patches. Those patches are then added to the CASE processes.
However, it seems that EGit is still missing the feature of creating
patches. I couldn't find it in the team menu. I have also searched the
mailing lists and bug trackers. It appears that this topic was already
I know that manually creating patches in unified diff does not match
the common git workflow, however, it is a useful feature for many other
aspects (like our project). Adding it would help EGit getting a fully
featured team provider.
However, I couldn't find if it is already (partly) implemented. Can you
tell me how far this process is or which steps are missing? If already
classes for this exist in EGit/JGit, could you tell me which those are.
If only small things are missing, we could also contribute the missing
code to the EGit project.
Have a look in the user guide . Maybe that's what you are
