|Re: [jgit-dev] [egit-dev] Plan for upcoming releases|
Dear [EJ]Git Teams,
Regarding the cool new features, we (Obeo) are planning to implement preliminary support for merge drivers within JGit [1, 2]. I'm only speaking about preliminary support because we only plan to support programmatic contributions of merge drivers, not through gitattributes files. Obviously, we will implement this feature with gitattributes in mind so that this will be easy to plug each others when JGit will support those files.
This work already let us find and fix out some bugs in JGit like . It still requires some refactoring within ResolveMerger class to extract the text-only merge support and to implement it as a default merge driver. We are also planning to add a binary merge driver that will not add angle brackets in case of conflicts within binary files. It will corresponds to binary builtin merge driver wihthin CGit as stated in .
Our ultimate goal is to add an EGit merge driver that will be able to call Eclipse Team merge API  to support logical model merge . This will be done in another contribution, to EGit.
Laurent Goubet and myself will be pleased to talk with you about these features. Also, I will be at Eclipse Con Europe at the end of october, so if some of you guys are there, I will be glad to meet you.
We are planning to submit the first patches during the month of october.
Last but not least, this work is sponsored by Ericsson and we would like to thank them for that.
