Re: [ide-dev] concrete action item - menu contribution

In the immediate, we should fix this in The Platform. There are already general bugs against menus, but I'd like to see a new one, specific to this case, providing steps to reproduce and expected behavior. 
Back to initial report, wouldn't it be simpler to just contribute one patch to PDE and another to Team (or EGit) to improve the "visibleWhen" condition of the menu?
Here, I don't think the issue reported by Pascal is to put on Platform: the Platform is extensible, and based on contribution, and it's great although some bad plugins can mess up good ones by adding menus or other stuff. But it's really the model of Eclipse Platform, and I don't think it's something we need to fight. Instead, reporting bugs to project that breaks some good usability rules and contributing patches to them seems like a simpler and more doable thing.
