Re: [egit-dev] [GSoC] EGit / JGit - git-blame support

2011/3/3 Kasun Lakpriya <kasun.lakpriya86@xxxxxxxxx>
Hi all,

I am Kasun Lakpriya from University of Moratuwa, Sri Lanka. I am following a Computer Science and Engineering degree there. Last year I participated in GSoC and the work can be found in [1] - this is an Eclipse plugin. 

While I was looking for some possible GSoC projects for this year I saw the very first idea is for Eclipse is from EGit project. I would like to know more about the idea. Please help me to get me started with the project.

It's about adding support for "git blame" [1] in JGit [2] (git library in Java) and 
EGit [3] (Eclipse integration and UI). There is an early proposed draft for the jgit part
by Benjamin Muskalla [4] which is based on former work from Manuel Woelker [5]
but there wasn't much progress on that in the last months.

If you are interested to have a closer look refer to [6] to find out how to setup
your environment for contributing and maybe try to fix some low hanging fruit
from our bug list to get a feeling what these projects are all about.
