Bug in Pending Ops View--Opening File Uses OS Default, Not EclipseIt's generally a good idea to undo things in the opposite order in which you originally did them.
I suggest that you use the "Team/Disconnect..." menu item on each of your project before you uninstall Subclipse.
Then, since you probably didn't just copy a folder into your plug-ins directory to install it, you probably shouldn't just delete it and assume that's a thorough job. You should probably go to the "Help/Software Updates/Manage Configuration..." menu item, choose the plug-in from the list, and choose "Uninstall".
Finally, all you've done there is uninstall Subclipse. Every directory that was under Subversion control will still have ".svn" administrative directories in them, which always have a README in them saying what you've seen.

I realized recently that since all my projects are not actually being developed by a team that i dont need the tight integration of svn in eclipse. Anyways I tried to delete it by just removing the folder from the plugin directory but this has caused some problems. My project seems to still think it should be talking to the svn server and then it dies when it tries to "Could not instantiate provider org.tigris.subversion.subclipse.core.svnnature for project ______". Where is it hiding this info? Its not in the .project or in the workspace metadata that I can find. What else is weird is that in some directories that I put under SVN control yesterday with TortiseSVN have a README in them that says "This is a Subversion working copy administrative directory.Visit http://subversion.tigris.org/ for more information.". What is doing this? As far as I can tell ive removed subversion.
