Display more information in the Repositories view
In the Repositories view, very little information is displayed about the repositories listed: Name, namespace/hierarchy, server. That's all.
When I list my repositories I want to see something similar to the Branches view: Owner, Creation date, Comment
(The Comment field was requested in another uservoice: https://plasticscm.uservoice.com/forums/15467-general/suggestions/8063376-repository-description)
But most importantly, I'd like to see number of branches, number of labels, number of changesets! This info could be displayed in an "extended information" sidebar, also just like in the Branches view.
No. This would not make listing slower, since any data that is slow to read-out can be put in the sidebar, meaning that you can defer the read-out until you select one of the repos and then you need only read from the selected repo. (If needed, cache the info and add a Refresh icon in the sidebar Properties tab for manual re-read...)
Interesting idea. It would make listing repos way much slower, which would have an impact on customers with thousands of them, so we must be careful about this point.
Latest changeset-number, date-time of latest changeset...
Motivation for this is of course to be able to quickly find more info about the repos. (Size, age, complexity...) As it is, I can't tell large repos from small or empty ones etc, without opening further views.
(BTW, the repid is useful for DB maintenance.)
More things to report in the sidebar "Properties":
* Object count (like in the replication/sync summary report).
* Number of revisions?
