How to extend the hoverhelp in a WorkItem editor?

This is what happen in M9 when I try to see the hoverhelp of an artifact
managed by the Jazz repository in the WorkItem editor:


As you can see, there is much displayed ("Could not create content"). So I
was wondering how I could add information (known only by my tool) in the
it.
Any suggestion is welcome. Thx

The only way to extend this currently is to register a DomainAdapter for
the corresponding class with the com.ibm.team.jface.domainAdapter
extension-point (see for example WorkItemDomainAdapter in the
workitem.ide.ui plug-in). The class in this case appears to be IFileItem
which would be too inclusive. You could file an enhancement request for
Foundation/Eclipse UI.

Thanks,

Christof
