In some cases, one might want to use Redmine to manage a project that has no SCM repository associated with, but a simple directory in the filesystem (can be a shared directory for example).
The FileSystem adapter simply reflects a directory in the filesystem. No author, no revision, no diff etc., only raw files and directories.
Please find attached patch for that.

I've just tested your patch. It looks to work fine and can be pretty useful indeed.
But some admins may not want users to be able to browse the whole filesystem of the remote host (a user allowed to manage repositories could create a FS repository that points to /).
I think we should provide a way for the admin to disable some of the "scm adapters".
