Description pekarna 2009-12-15 14:03:05 UTC
Often I only need to check or change the pom.xml file in a module of a multi-module project. Opening the module takes a long time (scanning the source, deps etc.).

So I suggest to add a "Open pom.xml" item to the context menu of the project, which would only open the pom.xml in the editor.

Is this possible?

Please do not move the Version field of any issue forward. This field refers to the earliest version for which the issue is known to be applicable.
Comment 3 pekarna 2011-05-07 01:25:12 UTC
Ok, sorry. I'd suggest migrating Jira, which allows much better version management (amongst other superiorities). But your ecosystem is too wired to Bugzilla I guess :)
