RE: [dsdp-tm-dev] Terminal View extensions

Dear Olivier,

> I do not see any extension point for adding a Connection Type. In

org.eclipse.tm.terminal/schema has the "TerminalConnector"
extension point. It's being used by the various 
org.eclipse.tm.terminal.* plugins to contribute their kinds
of connections. So I do think you could add a "local" kind
of connection.

Not currently - we have the "Local" command view in RSE. 
At some point, this RSE commandview, the Terminal, and
Wickedshell should be unified to a powerfull local shell.
That's on the wishlist for TM 3.0 -- see
http://wiki.eclipse.org/index.php/TM_Future_Planning

If you'd like to contribute your Terminal connector 
for local, it might make its way into TM at some point.
Just file an enhancement request in bugzilla, and attach 
your contribution (preferredly written without referencing
3rd party code, and licensed under the EPL).

Doesn't seem so right now. If you want it, please vote 
on the bug but it's REALLY late now for 2.0.
