Description Tomas Stupka 2012-04-04 12:07:41 UTC
there are scenarios when the action in the history do not work properly:

- multiselection 
  - some actions should work also if more revisions are selected - e.g. delete from local history
  - also that the history provider should be able to, depending on the selection, decide if an action is enabled or not

- when only 1 file from a multifile node (e.g. form) is selected than the invoked action will be applied for all files from such a node
Comment 1 Tomas Stupka 2012-04-04 16:21:34 UTC
suggested fix would be to ensure that if a ContextAwareAction is provided via VCSHistoryProvider.HistoryEntry.getActions() it will be initialized with a context containing the nodes from the history tab. Those nodes then would contain the relevant HistoryEntry and files for witch the actions is supposed to be invoked.
