Description devon_c_miller 2010-03-23 21:58:32 UTC
Using mercurial it is very common to have multiple repositories, several of which contain the same project. 

I would like the ability to see which project/library/jar is being used by a bean in the Swing/AWT palette.

Currently, the only way for me to know which project the bean came from, is to look in ${userdir}/config/FormDesignerPalette/<category>/<item>.palette_item and look for the "name" attribute of the "resource" tag.

I want to see which repository "owns" the bean so I know where I need to pull and build for the palette "Refresh" to pick up the changed bean.
