Re: [cross-project-issues-dev] Using map files with Subversion

Hi guys,

sorry for my beginner question, but I still don't understand how to use the map files (except for pointing the plugins/features for Babel translations!).

I thought it was used to specify different versions of plugins/features to look and checkout during the build process, but all map files I saw point to the same tag/version/revision.

Any further help, please? :)

Subversive has a section "SVN PDE Build" on their download page:
It has a link to some terse documentation in the wiki (last edit May 2009).

When adopting this plugin for our build I found the usage of "tag"
problematic, specifically when trying to select "trunk" for nightly builds
and an explicit tag for integration builds.

I patched the subversive-pde plugin and uploaded the patch to

I'd appreciate if that version would be generally adopted. Anyway, using
this patch fetching from SVN works for Object Teams just as desired.


PS: another TODO for this plugin is support for Eclipse-SourceReferences
headers, see:
