add * should be supported

Bug #269338 reported by Timmie on 2008-09-12
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
Bazaar Plugin for Eclipse

Bug Description

When adding many files to a project one would like to do a "bzr add *"
Or analogous in the Eclipse plugin:
Select the project top level directory and the use
Team -> Add *

Thanks for reporting this.
What do you think of using a dialog (similar to the revert dialog) for this case of "Add *"?

Just like this:
if I am at the top level directory of any project there should be a "Add *" opetion in the BZR menu instead of the normal sigle file add it would all files recursively.
Very convenient.

Ok, that sounds as a reasonable solution :)

In the meantime, you can execute commit from the project (right click in the project) and this 'll automatically select all untracked resources in the commit dialog.
When a untracked resources is selected in the commit, it's added before the commit :)

An recursive add would be great!!! Also a dialog showing the files that will be tracked .... then you can choose the files that you want to track ..... the same behavior can be found in SVN plugin.

The fix is in trunk.
It's implemented by supporting the "Add" action from the project root
