Re: Development Help on the Subclipse Project

No problem, it would be great to have someone else working on subclipse.
Here is how we work for now :

1) you subscribe to mailing lists
http://subclipse.tigris.org/servlets/ProjectMailingListList
2) you get the sources from the good branch (trunk for eclipse 2.1
http://svn.collab.net/repos/subclipse/trunk/subclipse/, branch
subclipse-3 for eclipse 3.0
http://svn.collab.net/repos/subclipse/branches/subclipse-3/ )
Both depends on svnClientAdapter which is at
http://svn.collab.net/repos/subclipse/trunk/svnClientAdapter/
3) try to compile it and make it work. Ask questions on mailing list if
you can't
4) try to understand how it works. I think junit tests in
"subclipse/test" project can help you.
(there are not many tests yet though). Ask questions on mailing list if
necessary
5) post a patch
6) if your patch is good and if you ask, we can then make you a committer

You can modify svnClientAdapter too but make sure that all tests still
pass (the tests for svnClientAdapter need svnant and are at
http://svn.collab.net/repos/subclipse/trunk/svnant/src/testcases/org/tigris/subversion/svnant/
: they are quite complete and test both svnant and svnClientAdapter)
