Thats because our VCS plugins currently don't handle
Context::FileContext. Feel free to add support for that. To see the VCS
menu, just use the project view for now.

See above, whats missing is the handling of all the various context
types in the right way in the various places and then eventually
also fixing the various methods on widgets that actually show the
context menus to create a properly ordered context menu.

See projectreeview.cpp in kdevplatform/plugins/projectmanagerview for
some inspiration and of course the VCS plugins for the
contextMenuExtension  methods. They show its supposed to work in
KDevelop4 and sooner or later we'll get around to fix all our plugins to
do it.


You have an unusual magnetic personality.  Don't walk too close to
metal objects which are not fastened down.
