RE: [subversive-defects] Subversive 0.7

Hi Felipe,


First of all I would like to say that all user-related topics are discussed in the newsgroup as it usual in Eclipse community. We have 441 posts there including today’s posts, so it’s a pretty active source of information. And I should say that after migrating to our community grow rapidly – on this year we counted 1 Million of downloads and got a lot of positive feedback on Eclipse conferences.


Regarding installation issue – you are right, installation is problematic on Eclipse 3.4 (you tried this version, right?). They can be explained by two facts: installation infrastructure in Eclipse 3.4 is very buggy – we reported a lot of requests about it; due to licensing limitations Subversive consists of two separate update sites and this cause problems for Eclipse installation infrastructure.


There were special threads in newsgroups regarding installation issues – I recommend you to take a look.


Best regards,

Igor Vinnykov

Hi guys,


    Since there's no "Users" list mentioned in the Eclipse Incubation site, I'm not sure where to address this type of discussion. Please advise if not in this list.


    The Subversive community never seemed to be very active before the migration to Eclipse Incubation, but there was at least some movement. I've been registered to the lists for a long time, and it has been months since the last message was exchanged.


    We recently underwent a migration to Eclipse Ganymede and we wanted to keep Subversive, but it just didn't work. Lots of errors and exceptions. We tried to install Eclipse from scratch, then Subversive, following the instructions on the site. It never worked.


    We finally had to get back to Subclipse which just lacks a lot of functionalities we were so happy about in Subversive.


    So I'm writting this message in hope that there is still some contact to your user base, but that I'm just not aware of, and maybe we can work together to try to win back my team.


Thank you,





Felipe Carasso
