Versioning 
Package Description
org.netbeans.modules.versioning.spi  

Versioning SPI module enables Source Code Management (SCM or Versioning) modules to fully integrate into the IDE workflow. Mostly it is a facade over existing friend APIs (masterfs). Registration: SCM module extends VersioningSystem and registers itself via default Lookup: it puts "org.netbeans.modules.versioning.spi.VersioningSystem" file in its META-INF/services folder. VersioningSPI Enables Source Code Management (SCM or Versioning) modules to fully integrate into the IDE workflow.

Use Cases

Main and Popup Menu usecases come from the UI spec available here: Versioning UI spec

Main Menu Itegration
All installed SCM systems must cooperate while constructing popup and main menus, see UI spec.
Popup Menu Itegration
All installed SCM systems must cooperate while constructing popup and main menus, see UI spec.
Coloring and Badging (annotations)
An SCM system needs a way to annotate labels and icons in the IDE.
Automated Versioning
To enable automated versioning (adds, removes, moves, delets), a SCM system needs to integrate at the lowest level into the IDE's filesystem layer. Refactoring is the most critical filesystem client here.
