Description John Jullion-ceccarelli 2002-08-01 16:06:12 UTC
Generic VCS currently shows all of its utility commands in 
the status bar and in the Runtime tab. These commands are 
numerous and unimportant to the user, and they push 
important information out of the display. 

For example, opening folders runs numerous 
CREATE_FOLDER_IGNORE_LIST commands. This is distracting 
because it makes the user think VCS is doing something, 
which it often isn't, and pushes the record of important 
commands out of the Runtime tab.

It would be nice to not show utility commands in the 
status bar at all. In the Runtime tab, we could make one 
command node for every VCS command, and list the utility 
commands as subnodes.

Also, when the Print Command Output property is set to 
true, I think the output from the VCS executable should be 
printed to the Output window rather than the utility 
commands. Presently, if the user wants to see command 
output from the executive she has to set the option for 
each individual command.
