Hi Robert, 

I took a look at workspace mechanic and installed it to get a short overview.
So as I see from first view workspace mechanics supports to find changes in workspace configurations as well as 
reconfigure configurations in propertyfiles. 
I think that's a very important point because most settings are stored in propertyfiles. 

Have you already implemented or do you plan a feature to replace or install complete files? 
E.g. the .checkstyle file is an xml file. If I want to reconfigure check style - is there a way to do 
with workspace mechanic?

Markus, this is certainly possible, but it's not built by default. You
would need to write a plug-in that connects to the workspace mechanic.
