Bazaar Plugin for Eclipse

Bug Description

It would be nice if one could branch from the remote systems explorer view ( This view makes it possible to browse a servers files using SSH. A possibility would be to extend this so that a right click on a directory would give the option to branch it (using bzr+ssh://... or sftp://...).

Hi Jerome,
Thanks for pointing this out, it's a very nice idea, I never used the remote system explorer but I'll take a look to it ASAP.


Changed in bzr-eclipse:

We would also have use for something like this, with, it sounds like, slightly different needs from the original requester. We have developers who work on a development server via SSH, and work on bzr checkouts that, from the development server context, are local (e.g., a checkout from /bzr/someproject/trunk to /home/some_developer/projects/someproject on the same machine), and they do commits, updates, etc., via SSH terminal at the moment, so for us, the optimal integration with RSE would be if the plugin could actually use the remote bzr executable and do everything remotely, rather than use a local executable and do things via bzr+ssh. No sense in downloading all of data necessary for a commit so the local bzr can process it, only to upload it again at commit time.

I have a slightly different use case.

I have a server in the cloud and use Bazaar to track changes that I make to the server config. I also run Drupal on that server and would like to track changes to that config.

I don't want to have to branch from the remote server. It's far easier to work on the file remotely. I'd rather edit files on the server using Eclipse and then commit those changes to that server.

Would be great if the Bazaar Plugin for Eclipse would allow me to commit to my remote server using the Remote Explorer.
