Shows the expected links in the output window and the dialogs to be invoked
I like to review the commits which came in from remote (pull/fetch) or went out (push) more easily. For example eGit supports this workflow by showing the commits after pulling/fetching/pushing - see .
In NetBeans we could also introduce this with small effort IMHO.
Proposal: Add links in output window which show the commits as diff or in summary view. So the interested git user can click on one of the links to see what happened. This is more a passive approach than the active eGit-notification approach, but the power git users in NB can still access the info in a easy way. See the attached screenshot to see what I mean.
Which commit have I pushed? So show/diff PREVIOUS_ORIGIN_MASTER..HEAD (simplified and probably not 100% correct)
Which commits were integrated in my workspace? So show/diff ORIG_HEAD..HEAD (simplified and probably not 100% correct)
Which commits were fetched? So show/diff FETCH_HEAD..HEAD (simplified and probably not 100% correct)
FYI: Something similar was already proposed for CVS https://netbeans.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=168983
Integrated into 'main-silver', will be available in build *201309170002* on http://bits.netbeans.org/dev/nightly/ (upload may still be in progress)
