Is it possible to add Version control plugins to automate tasks with regard to repository maintenance and updating, committing, resolution, etc. for Git, MercurialHg, Bazaar, SVN, CVS, and other systems though a plugin framework.
There is a thirdparty plugin available at http://tellurianring.com/wiki/gradle/release written by Eric Berry & Evgeny Goldin. I havn’t tested this plugin on my own, but it seems to support Bazaar, Git, Mercurial, and Subversion.
Best is to merge the two efforts so this feature is tightly supported.
This can be a 3rd party contribution. The original developers can you it with the core team’s support.
