[m2e-users] Having problems with M2Eclipse lately
I recently had to reinstall my eclipse instance (last week) and since then have been having a lot of problems with M2Eclipse. For starters, when I checkout a multi-module project using any of the SCM handlers (confirmed both in Subclipse and Subversive on both Juno and Indigo), only the parent project is showing up in eclipse as shared. The child projects are not. 2ndly, projects are not getting configured as Faceted projects. I seem to have to do that manually now. That is not such a big deal but the last part of the problem is that the maven dependencies no longer seem to be showing up as the Maven Dependency library like they used to... I have to run eclipse:eclipse to get the project to recognize maven dependencies (which is supposed to be alternative to m2eclipse... not conjunctive). I have found this to be the case even if I checkout the project via svn on the command line and then use the Import... -> Existing Maven Projects... I should not that doing this, I have an external maven instance configured. If I used the embedded maven instance, I get effectively the same result as running eclipse:eclipse.
As I said, I seem to be witnessing this behavior in both Juno and Indigo and only as of recently. I installed Maven Integration for Eclipse via the Eclipse Marketplace and am using Subclipse as my SVN handler (v 1.8 also installed from the Eclipse Marketplace). I have been using the m2eclipse-subclipse version of the Maven SCM Handler for Subclipse - the version posted by Mark Phippard in response to Sonatype's abandonment of the project.

Has anyone else been witnessing such behavior lately? Is there anything I can do to get things back on track?
