we have developed synchronized projects for C/C++ and Fortran as part of PTP (http://wiki.eclipse.org/PTP/sync-projects
). It uses GIT in the background, to always keep the local project folder in sync with a remote directory. For the compiler languages the sync is integrated with the build to guarantee that every sync is finished before the build starts. This allows relative stemless remote development.
We have had users voicing interest in support for Python. Are you interested in supporting remote development with PyDev? I would assume that integrating PTP-Sync-projects with PyDev should relatively little work and we would probably be able to do this integration on our side. But in case you are interested in this, working together would speed this up significantly.
Please let us know whether you have interest in this feature and would be interested to work with us on adding it.
