RE: RE: How to change the 'Repository Root' once a project is connected to SVN?

Actually, the information is stored in the workspace folders
.metadata/.plugins/org.tigris.subversion.subclipse.core and
org.tigris.subversion.subclipse.ui.
I do not recommend to modify these files, because some have binary
information.
Instead, you could try to delete the files (or save at another location).
Eclipse will then know nothing about SVN locations. You can then enter your
correct repository again.
It should map the existing projects to the new location.

Marcus,
 
where are the repository locations stored? It seems Subclipse has screwed
that file.
If I disconned ("delete all svn information = yes") project X from SVN,
close the project, go to SVN browser, click on X's repository location, try
to discard it, it tells me: The URL gets used by project X. Cool, isn't it?
 
So what file do I have to manually edit to make that repository location go
away?

Hi,
 
just create a new repository entry in the SVN Repository perspective
pointing to the trunk of your new location in the repository .
The automatically generated ones can be deleted afterwards from the SVN
Repository view using the discard location function
(these should be subviews to the newly created one), and the projects will
be referenced automatically in the new location.
You can also have multiple views to the same SVN (which is already the case
in your situation), e.g. for a trunk and a special doc folder, which is
located
in another part of the hierachy.

I don't know for what, but Subclipse asks for TWO URLs when connecting to a
repository: The URL usual to SVN, and the 'repository root'. Other tools
(SVN command line, TortoiseSVN) do not ask for that second URL. It seems
that 'Root URL' is needed to truncate the tree of folders or something.
 
So now we have a problem with this. We copied a project from one machine to
the other. Subclipse automatically created repository URL entries in the
'SVN Browser Perspective' without manual intervention. Cool. :-) But
unfortunately, it didn't guess well the 'Root URL's, so now there is one new
repository URL for each project, while on the original machine the root URL
was set to one common supernode.
 
Now when I want to switch, I cannot select the trunk, because the root URL
is set to 'branches/branch-current-when-copying', and as a result the trunk
is not visible... :-(
 
So how to change that 'Root URL' to get back the complete folder list in the
tree?
