Comment on Eclipse Neon and ssh-agent by Gunnar Wagenknecht

Fri, 13 Jan 2017 08:20:01 +0000

Hi Roy, although the code is there, I was waiting on someone testing it and adding a pull request. Unfortunately, I don't have access to a Windows setup so I can't test it. If someone can do that and open a pull request I'm ready to merge it.

Hi Gunnar, Would it be possible for you to add the feature for the pageant agent as well? I see the code is there in the project, looks like the feature just needs adding to the update site, so that both Open SSH and pageant are available in eclipse. Very many thanks, Roy.

Marc, AFAIK there is no information available in English. Did you try a translation service on the Wikipedia entry about Miss Baba?

Sergei, Please reach out to the Polarion folks for accessing the source code. I have no longer access. However, it's open source so there should be a guest account for checking out the code from their SVN repository. Thanks!

The link above should have been to the comment rather than to the article. Here is the more accurate link:

Gunnar, I am trying to migrate projects from Starteam to SVN. If I try to capture the trunk only, it works. Attempting to get tags/branches, it errors out. I found a suggestion by Quinn Bailey on how to fix the “EXCEPTION CAUGHT: org.polarion.svnimporter.svnprovider.SvnException: Unknown branch” exception at this URL but am unable - even with a Polarion account - to grab the source code from Polarion even after obtaining a log-in account from them. Here I quote from his suggestion: OK, so the fix needs to be made on line 139 of svnModel.addFileCopyToTag(revision.getAbsolutePath(), tagName, revision.getBranch().getName(), revision.getAbsolutePath(), oldRevno); Instead that line should read: svnModel.addFileCopyToTag(revision.getAbsolutePath(), tagName, revision.getBranch().getBranchName(), revision.getAbsolutePath(), oldRevno); Do you have an idea on how to obtain the source or the fixed build? Recht schoenen Dank

Anything happening with this or did it move/die/become something beyond my comprehension?

[…] Standard 4.4 (which was called Eclipse Classic before Kepler) was renamed into Eclipse IDE for Eclipse Committers 4.4.1. Regardless of the name, the package is not only for Eclipse committers, but also for Eclipse […]

Cool, I've been waiting for progress in that area for a long time!

I'm a Jazz enthusiast and it's really cool see how this project started and how it evolved over the years.

Where is Eclipse idea box? And Eclipse crybox? I'm working on Eclipse in many aspects: OSGI, Eclipse plugins, WTP, Swing UI... I wanted to say what I like/dislike, and have the back of the community with a 'I like' system. Here's what I have to say: * On the process: ** Eclipse commitment process is too long: does component approach really brings to such administrative. ** Github for everyone, deployment on repositories such as Maven central * On Architecture: ** Plugin.xml, Eclipse-LazyLoading and Require-Bundle really? What about blueprint.xml or a true CDI (pax-cdi) OSGI service implementation, there are standards for services too, keep the IDE on what it is doing for: an IDE. * On usage: ** m2e is not Maven: many of my projects can compile whit Maven, but not with m2e ** Plugin dev: when my platform is out of sync, why don't we reboot the concerned plugin? Can't we base all plugin/jdt dev to Maven, Gradle or any build tool and, that repeat myself, concentrate Eclipse dvlpmnt solely on the IDE thing. ** target platform and run configuration: I've many project, some that build with e3.8, some other with 4.3 (some must be compatible): to test one, I'm constrained to change TP, wait for 40 minutes, run my configuration (that is for sure tied with it), then test the other so back to step 1... ** wtp is just insane: no way to use it (too slow, too many issues, too hard to make a contribution: please recode...). If you want to move Eclipse forward, my point of view is to really improve user experience (reactivity, usage...), instead of thinking about a fee (Eclipse Long Term Plan is done to assist company to grab this product).

The working group is a great idea! Thank you for creating the proposal. Other people also suggested this as reaction of my "Imagine the eclipse IDE would cost $300..." blog post. I think it is a great idea. I still believe that the "option" to pay for eclipse would make sense and would be complementary to the working group membership. The idea behind the $300 was hat shopping shrink-wrap software is a common procedure within companies with little administrative overhead. "Buying" is different form a "donation" and different form becoming "member of a working group". If I am freelancer or a small company, I can easily tax-deduce a software purchase. But to tax-deduce a donation is much more complicated. Yes, I can put it on my expenses and hope it is OK, but I am not sure what a tax control would say about this. Being able to "pay" instead of "donate" can make a difference how much of the $100 of my revenue I invest into eclipse. It may only be $60 ending up at eclipse, because I have to pay $40 on taxes.

Is working group also a place to post ideas, review and fund implementation?
Yes! That's the important role of the working group.
