As far as lcVCS goes I actually think it would be good better if we could work with Mark and Peter to get the file format into the engine. That way if there’s a new property or something it’s all automatic. I think what I’ve done is useful in that both it has worked and that it has given me a fairly solid understanding of what the issues are to pass on where I can or at least discuss with the engine guys. There’s a healthy discussion in that direction going on here https://github.com/runrev/livecode/pull/1590#issuecomment-131057336 <https://github.com/runrev/livecode/pull/1590#issuecomment-131057336>
The git IDE integration on the other hand could be a plugin (paid or open source) or part of the IDE that comes out of the box. It’s where the magic happens. Stuff like the toolTip on the script line numbers showing the author and commit message. So I’d rather focus on that stuff.
