Keybinding conflict

I've just committed a fix for the nasty keybinding conflict between Rpm Spec editor and Java editor and Eclipse - both were registered to the same shortcut Ctrl-Shift-O. The spec editor was using the generic org.eclipse.ui.textEditorScope so it just overrides Java editor shortcut. Not having the Organize Imports is a big problem especially when you are used to it.

Spec editor first step

First commit to eclipse repository done :) .
It's just the possibility(user interface) to add a directory to the rpm macros proposal list. But the efect on Mandriva is huge - with so many packages shipping their own rpm macroses adding /etc/rpm/macros.d to the list increases the number of macros proposal several times. It really saves a lot of time with java packages - %{ant}, %{gcj_compile}, %{gcj_files} and etc.
Next step: Mandriva package with this feature and /etc/rpm/macros.d added by default :) to safe one more step.

Eclipse commiter

After the successful vote I've completed all the legal paperwork and I'm now a committer on the technology.linux-distros project. The hard part is coming - make the rpm spec editor better.

While reading the article "Blogging will make you happy" I've decided to restart blogging. All older posts are removed (actually 1 :)).
Let's see whether I can keep doing it on a regular base.
