This recent discussion should help clarify things a little bit.
(make sure to read all of the follow-up responses).
But the use of ClearCase (or any pessimistic locking scheme that
requires explicit locking or checking-out of files) complicates matters
a little bit. Generally, the .project, .classpath, and .settings files
will only be touched if someone changes things in the Project
properties. I have seen an occasional situation where the .classpath was
updated as a result of just looking at the properties (not changing
anything) but I'm pretty sure that was in the context of a project that
was migrated from one Eclipse version to another. In other words, that
should not be happening in general and not very often.
Perhaps if you can describe an exact scenario that you are having
trouble with the .project, .classpath, and .settings being under SCM
control, then we could help find a resolution to that specific scenario...
Hope this helps,
