Hello EGit developers,
I'm new to EGit development and to Eclipse plugin dev in general.
Sorry in advance if my questions are basic.
My goal here is to develop, test, and submit a patch that enables the --follow feature of git log that is not available in EGit.
(See also the bug #302549 about this.)
that's great :-)
You may consider to add this functionality first to jgit CLI (class org.eclipse.jgit.pgm.Log)and maybe also jgit API (class org.eclipse.jgit.api.LogCommand)to get the jgit part right and then do the integration with the history view.
Actually I already had 80% of the work done. Porting the --follow feature of JGit into the GitHistoryPage class was just about setting a FollowFilter as tree filter of the current walk (well in the right circumstances).
My problem was just how to test that. I finally realized I could use a dedicated test instance of Eclipse. In which I would install EGit with this update-site archive generated by the build process. I added a section about that in the contributor guide.
