Having now used
both CVS and SVN extensively, I cannot recommend CVS
Every time you copy or refactor in an SVN area expect
I think you meant 'cannot recommend SVN', or rather 'cannot recommend Subversive'.
I've been using SVN extensively for several years and have found that the only Eclipse plug-in that works reliably for me is Subclipse. I too have experienced too many issues with Subversive (though I haven't used it in about 3 months).
