Hi,

I have a scenario where I have several large eclipse projects already setup.
I had been using an external svn client to interact with subversion, but now
I'd like to use subversive.

Is there any way to share my existing eclipse projects without having to do
a fresh checkout?

Chris

I wanted to try to connect to SVN using project settings - but there's one
issue. All of the source folders in my projects are actually links - they
aren't direct children of the project in the workspace...

So it looks like

c:\workspace\Project1 (no .svn directory here)
+sourceDir1 -> c:\dev\Project1\source (has .svn dir)
+sourceDir2 -> c:\dev\Project1\dir2 (has .svn dir)

I don't see the option to connect to svn using project settings.

I found this bug:

https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=264199

That states this problem won't be fixed...

It seems reasonable that subversive should be able to handle linked
resources... If the linked folder contains a .svn directory then isn't that
everything needed by subversion (or subversive)?

It might make sense to check to see if the linked directory contains svn
metadata - if it does then don't ignore it?

Hello Chris,

According to Eclipse's Strategies for Handling Linked Resources: "In order
to be "link friendly", a provider should allow projects with linked
resources to be version controlled, but can disallow the version controlling
of linked resources themselves."
So Subversive doesn't allow you to version linked resources.
