[compare] Compare two arbitrary DiffNodes. Add a "Compare with Each Other" command to the GitDiffTreeViewer in the Compare Editor. It enables the user to compare two arbitrary files listed in the directory structure viewer, which is useful in particular to deal with renamed files that are reported as an addition and a deletion.
574710 [compare] Enhance the diff viewer. Add the ShowInMenu in the context menu of the diff viewer of a compare editor. Otherwise it's available only in the global menu. Also add toolbar buttons to expand or collapse all nodes. The "Expand All" menu action only expands the currently selected nodes.
574757 [history] Enable "Focus on this File" for bare repositories. Also make "Show in->History" work in the compare editor
574710 [compare] Disable "Link with Editor" for multi-file comparisons
[compare][history] Compare multiple files with working tree in the CommitFileDiffViewer
[compare][history] Make compare commit against working tree in the git history page work also when the input is not filtered to a single file. The comparison is still restricted by the current history page input, but now also works if the input is several files, or one or more directories, or the whole repository. Rename detection is not done in these cases.
[compare] Add "Compare With" sub-menu for the repositories view. When directory or file nodes belonging to the same repository are selected in the repositories view, provide commands for the "Compare With" sub-menu in the context menu:
Compare with HEAD
Compare with Branch, Tag, or Reference...
Compare with Commit...
[compare] Comparing the working tree with a commit, used in the repositories view: if a single ref (branch, tag, or additional ref) is selected in the repositories view, the CompareCommand now changes its label to "Compare with Working Tree", and opens the compare editor with the comparison between the working tree and the selected ref.
This kind of comparison does not replace the synchronize commands. The synchronization support works only for IResources (i.e., files and folders in the Eclipse workspace), but has elaborate support for "model-based" comparisons. OTOH, this new "Compare with Working Tree" command also works well for files not in the Eclipse workspace, but cannot do model-based comparisons.

relax version range of hamcrest and assertj dependencies
jgit updated to hamcrest 2.2.0 and assertj 2.20.2
egit cannot yet update to these versions since e.g. swtbot has a hard requirement for hamcrest 1.1.
jetty to 9.4.43.v20210629
com.google.gson to 2.8.7.v20210624-1215

Add 4.21 target platform
Update 4.20 target platform to use final 4.20 release
Move the EGitCredentialsProvider to EGit core
[releng] Force --release and use BREE to run tests. Make the EGit build work if code is compiled with a Java > 1.8. This prepares for moving the BREE to Java 11: when we do that, we will need to be able to build nightly with and against Java 11, but the stable branch against Java 1.8.
CONTRIBUTING: add excplicit link to ECA
CONTRIBUTING: Use standard markdown format
Add Eclipse code of conduct and security policy
The project leadership certifies that the APIs in this release are "Eclipse Quality".
