SVN Workspace Synchronization

SVN Workspace Synchronization is shown in the 'Synchronize View' after a click on a 'Team>Synchronize' menu item or 'Synchronize' button on 'Team' toolbar of the 'Team Synchronizing' perspective. It provides a probability to inspect the changes types of your local copy from the remote one.

This is how 'SVN Workspace Synchronization' in the 'Synchronize View' looks like:

Synchronize View

Synchronization state

The synchronization state is shown with the help of the following icon decorations:

Icon Description
Incoming addition An incoming addition icon means, that the marked resource was added to a repository location, so it's new comparatively to the local copy. It will be added to the local copy after update action.
Incoming change An incoming change icon means, that some changes to the marked file were made comparatively to your local copy. The changes will be added to the local copy after update action.
Incoming deletion An incoming deletion icon means, that this resource was deleted from a repository location, but it's still contained in the local copy. It will be deleted from the local copy after update.
Outgoing addition An outgoing addition icon means, that the marked resource was added to the local copy, so it's new comparatively to the repository location. It will be added to the repository after commit action.
Outgoing change An outgoing change icon means, that some changes to the marked file were made comparatively to the repository location. The changes will be added to the repository after commit action.
Outgoing deletion An outgoing deletion icon means, that the marked resource was deleted from the local copy, but it's still contained in the repository location. It will be deleted the repository after commit action.
Conflict addition A conflict addition icon means, that to different resources with the marked resource name were added both to the repository location and to the local copy.
Conflict change A conflict change icon means, that the changes, that can't be merged automatically were made both with local copy and repository one. A manual merge is required. The parents of the decorated resource will be also decorated.
