Re: [egit-dev] Default value for the default repository path

I have some doubts if it is the right way to configure Eclipse via environment variables.

Subject: [egit-dev] Default value for the default repository path

the default value for the default repository path is currently the
user home directory (or the HOME variable). However, i think it would
be better to set that path via another environment variable.
I have all my repositories cloned to a folder on a second partition,
but i don't want to change the HOME variable to that folder, because i
don't know if there are other applications that use that variable. So
i have to adjust that option in every workspace. Thus it would be
better for me if i could provide a variable named e.g. EGIT_REPOPATH
for the repository path. As a fallback if that variable don't exist we
could still point to the user home directory.

What do you think about that?
