I indicated in the doc that Subclipse adds unversioned files, perhaps I
was just too obtuse in my wording? I agree with you that Synchronize will
show the details of a commit and ultimately be the answer.
My main point was that we should identify what is missing and needs to be
done in order to get to a somewhat "completed" state? For example, is
there any particular reason that Switch and Merge have not been
implemented? For items like Synchronize, what is left to be done and who
is working on it? If we could agree on a list of what needs to be done,
it would be easier for someone to step up and say, I will do this, this
and this. I also think it would help answer a lot of the common questions
that new users have about what should work and shouldn't, like the
That being said, as nice as the Synchronize option could be, it is still
only providing functionality that somewhat exists already. Perhaps it
could solve the conflict problem, but otherwise, it is just a nicer
commit/update. There are still other areas like branching and merging
that really are not addressed at all currently. My document was trying to
identify those areas as well.
