IDEAX : VCS auto discovery process changed ? Follow
My MKS plugin used to be able to auto-associate itself with newly added modules when those modules were MKS controlled but it doesn't seem to work anymore in IDEA-X, has there been changes in the Open API VCS auto-association process ?
My plugin overrides the com.intellij.openapi.vcs.AbstractVcs#isVersionedDirectory method but it doesn't seem to be called anymore

Any hints ?
I've debugged my plugin , setting a breakpoint in #isVersionedDirectory while opening a new maven-based project (eg new means there is no IDEA defined module in it susceptible to contribute VCS associations), and the method doesn't get called
I finally checked out the Community edition from GIT, and can't find any callers of either com.intellij.openapi.vcs.AbstractVcs#supportsVersionedStateDetection or com.intellij.openapi.vcs.AbstractVcs#isVersionedDirectory.
Is that expected ?
administrativeAreaName attribute of <vcs> descrtiptor indicates what folders should be looked for in the directory to quickly check whether it is under VCS.
For instance, for Subversion I set administrativeAreaName=".svn, _svn"
Will fix it for more common case.
The reason - we don't want to create AbstractVcs implemention etc. if it is only a check whether VCS should be used or not
Sounds good, I'll just regret those changes are hard to discover for plugin developpers without having to disturb you.
