Beginning with version 2.30 ECB supports Version-control systems (in the following named VC-systems). This means the special tree-buffers of ECB display files managed by a VC-system with an appropriate image-icon1 in front of the filename.
The following four options allow full control over this feature (see also ecb-version-control:
ecb-vc-supported-backendsand used for getting the VC-state of a file, e.g.
vc-state) and the allowed state-values ECB can understand.
Probably the default settings will fit your needs but to get sure you should carefully read the documentation of these options!
The following subsection give you important informations about identify-backend-functions, check-state-functions, about working with remote repositories.
 Of course only when Emacs is capable to display images; otherwise a suitable ascii-icon will be displayed.
