Subject IvyDE's workspace resolver taking directory structure into account
Date Wed, 15 Jan 2014 14:37:00 GMT
Has there been any previous discussion around optionally taking directory
structure into account in IvyDE's workspace resolver?

Our project structure is set up as:

    project-1/
        project-1
        util-1
    project-2/
        project-2
        util-2

Where util-1 and util-2 are checked out from the same scm location, and so
publish the same revision of the same module.

Currently we can use the workspace resolver and close util-2 when working
on project-1, and vice-versa.
The problem is this can be error prone, and people tend to forget, end up
referencing the wrong project and get confused.

We have been contemplating modifying IvyDE to walk through all projects in
the workspace, and pick the one whose location URI is the closest match.

We only have a maximum of a dozen projects in a workspace, so it seems like
this wouldn't be a huge performance issue.
Has this been tried or discussed before? What were the drawbacks?

If we were to go ahead and do this, would a patch be considered?
