Description sindisil 2011-05-03 17:00:13 UTC
When a source root is added to a project, and it is already owned by another project, an error dialog is show, indicating which project is the current owner.

If only one location is used for project storage, that is sufficient.

However, if one uses multiple locations for projects (say, various git repositories), a simple project name will be insufficient.

If possible, it would be very helpful to include the path to the project that already owns the source root(s) in question.
