it is not good idea to mix SVN formats inside and outside Eclipse. I do not use JavaHL, but SVNKit
since it is pure java and independent from native libraries. And starting with Subversive 0.7.8,
only SVNKit 1.2.* is supported, which in turn supports SVN 1.5 and 1.6. Therefore, we have started
to upgrade our out-side-of-eclipse clients to SVN 1.5 to match this. Otherwise, we would have to
stay at an older version of Subversive (0.7.7) and corresponding SVNKit.
So either you downgrade to Subversive 0.7.7 and use related Polarion connectors or (what I would
suggest) you upgrade your local SVN client from 1.4. to 1.5. It would still work with a 1.4 server
as we do so. Then you could upgrade your complete working copy by doing "svn cleanup" in the head of
the working copy. The "format" file in the .svn sub-folders would then go from "8" (1.4) to "9" (1.5.).
Feel free to ask for further details if you need so. We still use Eclipse 3.3.2, so I cannot answer
3.4 or 3.5 related questions yet.
