Hi folks.

This week was better than the last.. ..but still not 'rocking'!.

What did I do this week?

Did some discoveries on how to recover/undo things with Git: seems it
is a lot wider topic than I thought!
Sopped unveiling the secrets of the uDig UI lifecylce: it was too
painful to use a lot of time and make so little progress.
Made a first working (!) porting of the ArcTool and started merging it
with all convenience classes already available in eu.udig.tools: quite
promising and exciting.

What will I be working on next week?

Complete the task of merging ArcTool inside the eu.udig.tools plug-in.
Some more studying user-UI interaction in uDig with the aim of fixing
one of the bugs of the MergeTool (merging through an Operation working
on features selected with the plain box selection tool).

Did I meet with any stumbling blocks?

Yes.. ..same as the last week's one: could not find a way to open by
code the MergeView.java.
Some (other) suggestions from the community were tested but without
luck. Tough there is still hope: use a callback in MergeView (thanks
Mauricio!). A bit frightening (I hope not to break the working code)
but I will give it a try.

Thank you,
Marco Foi
