      Description

      The following warning text is always displayed under the parameter selection boxes.

      "If you selected revisions as a type of presented data and working space is empty, the plug needs clone the repository, before it can display the contents. This may take some time if you have a slow connection or repository is large."

      It is in larger font than the actual help text for the parameter and distracts people that are attempting to enter correct parameters to invoke a build.

      Furthermore, we are not even using the "revisions" option for the selection data. The message seems to be displayed for any data type.

      Would it be possible to add a global configuration setting to make the warnings optional or removable?

          I tried the updated plugin.

          Thanks for the fix.
          The misleading warning text no longer shows for our configured jobs.
