Hi there,

I have a use case where I want to delete files locally in my working
copy without Subversion noticing it.

However, Subversive seems to delegate the Eclipse-standard delete in the
project explorer to the SVN-delete function.

In contrast, Subclipse does not seem to do that, so if I use the
Eclipse-standard delete, SVN does not recognize the delete and if I use
delete from the SVN team menu, it is an official SVN-delete. So I can
explicitly trigger it the way I want.

This is also what I'm used to by Windows-Explorer Integrations, e.g.

Is this intended behaviour? Any way to configure it?

Workaround seems to be to create something like a "clean"-Ant-Script
that does the delete outside the observation of the Workspace. Not
really handy. Any other ideas?

It is intended behaviour, as it is specified in Team Services documentation and there is no option to configure it. It should work and works the same way with any other source control plug-in. And it is really strange if it works differently with Subclipse, since by terms of Eclipse Team Services API it is a bug.
Regarding workarounds - the only way to delete a file without reporting it to Subversion is to delete it outside Eclipse IDE, directly from the file system, then refresh the parent folder/project.
