In order to create repository with the Subversive UI you should have either: native JavaHL or SVN Kit 1.3.5 based connector installed, or you'll have to do it manually using 'svnadmin create' command. In the last case you'll also need to create a repository location for the created repository using 'SVN Repository Location Wizard', then you can share required project (or projects) using 'SVN Sharing Wizard' and perform the initial commit.

Subversive handles errors and in case of error detection is asked for sending of the automatic error report. This report contains required information such as stack trace and Java environment. You can also provide your comments about a problem, which help developers to find a reason of problem. Note that report doesn't contain any confidential information and you can review what exactly will be sent. All what you need to send such report is just to press a button in dialog.
We cordially invite everyone in the Subversive community to get involved with the project newsgroup at news://news.eclipse.org/eclipse.technology.subversive (more below). This is crucial if we want to reach the eventual goal of inclusion of Subversive in the Eclipse IDE. Synergy of the Subversive team and the Community will lead the way towards defining the expectations of the potential user community, adjusting the project's goals accordingly, and eventually accomplishing those goals.
