[subversive-dev] build from source

Hi subversive devs,

I have the task of investigating bug 294610 for a client of ours.

But at the moment, I've been stuck for some time with trying to build & run
the subversive plugin from source. (So that I can later test modifications)

The most successful attempt at doing that was so far:

- have a clean Eclipse Indigo unpacked in the home dir.

- do not install the subversive plugin to avoid confusion whether
  I'm testing the binary install or the source build.

- checkout the subversive trunk into the workspace using the
  svn command line client.

- by chance, import into the workspace the following source trees:

- Build all, find ~1400 warnings, ignore.

- Run plug-ins as Eclipse application.

- In the second, plug-in testing Eclipse that starts, go to
  the "SVN Repositories" view, after which the Subversive
  Connectors Discovery starts automatically.

- Select SVNKit 1.3.5 (which works fine in the binary install of Subversive)

- Installation of the connector fails with, among others, the error message:

"org.eclipse.core.runtime.CoreException: Operation details
Contains: Cannot complete the install because one or more required items
could not be found.
Contains: Software being installed: Subversive SVN Connectors
2.2.2.I20110715-1700 (
Contains: Missing requirement: Subversive SVN Connectors
2.2.2.I20110715-1700 (
2.2.2.I20110715-1700) requires '
[0.7.9.I20110101-1700,1.0.0)' but it could not be found

I've been trying to resolve this, but if you already know what I'm doing
wrong, I'd be delighted if you could tell me.
