Hi Ekke,

Out of personal interest, have you tried the Git integration in Creator
(recently)? There are a lot of things that conceptually work much better
than an external tool - annotate the current file, jump from a diff to
the source code, commit from within the editor... I rarely use external
tools. Even Interactive Rebase is integrated.

So my question is: What is missing in Creators Git integration?

Thanks and regards,
