    • annotate (need a lot of work)
    • log (now is showed in a view inside eclipse)

Known bugs

  • Commands that require authentication (i.e: pull, push) produce a deadlock hanging Eclipse (be careful with this!) see: bug 121936
  • In a branch command (import a project) there is no URI's validation
