[ BUILD # : 201212080001 ]
[ JDK VERSION : 1.7.0_09 ]
* Checkout a Git-, a Hg-, and a Svn-project
* Open the context menu for the projects and select "Git"/"Hg"/"Svn"
* the menuitems in the SCM context menu are not sorted in a consistent
manner - see colored markers in the screenshot - it is obvious
* the menuitems in the SCM context menu are not named in a consistent
manner (Revert... vs. Revert modifications, Show changes vs. Status, Show
History vs. Search History vs. Search History...)
-> it is confusing to use, i always have to think twice of the position/naming
of show history/search history when switching between git/hg projects
* consistent ordering and naming of menu items

Benno, you're welcome to propose any general and common ordering. I have no opinion on this matter. Adding ui menu expert honza peska on CC.

My proposal - taken from the clean Intellj IDEA UI (see screenshot to compare)
The UI team is currently reviewing main menus in general and there are some changes planned for NEXT release (after 7.3). Menu items ordering is one of the issues we are trying to solve so I suggest to handle this issue as part of the Team menu review.
Thanks for your screenshots and suggestion it will be useful for evaluation and it will be taken into account during decision-making.
fixed as part of the fox for #226504
