Firstly, let me introduce myself. My name is Zdenek Ziegler and I work in Siemens, s.r.o. in Czech Republic. Maybe I met with some of you on EclipseCon this year.


Why do I message you… Maybe some of you know Andre Bossert, who is my colleague from Germany. He cooperated with your community in the past regarding the Git Worktree support.


List of his patches:

the first and last changes in this list have been abandoned

He unfortunately was not able to complete his work. And his code was rejected by community. Since that he always rebase his code to the newer version of JGit/EGit and provide it at least for our internal usage. His last rebase was for version corresponding to Eclipse 4.19. And it was working.

He didn't address all review comments yet, that's why his changes weren't accepted yet.

Now Andre is not able to support this anymore for us and I had to take his place without detailed handover. So with my poor knowledge about this project I was not able to make worktree support work. That leads to the reason why am I sending this e-mail to you.


I would like to „continue“ with his initial work and make the Worktree support work again and provide it to the community in correct way afterwards. I would like to ask you. Is there anybody who can support me with this? As I mentioned earlier I am not experienced with this plug-in and with the community workflow, but I am open to learn that, if there will be someone who will support me.

It's great that you want to continue the work on worktree support.

Of course, I can provide more information about current status of „our“ code in special e-mail or meeting via Teams.


Thank you for your reply in advance.


With best regards
