I just used Subclipse to import a new Eclipse project into Subversion
and stumbled on a few issues:
1) The first attempt to import the project failed with the error shown
in workspace.png, complaining that the directories 'P:\workspace' and
'p:\workspace' are not identical (note the difference in case between
'P' and 'p')
2) After fixing that, I could proceed to the commit dialog shown in
commit.png. The following was not clear to me:
- What would happen if I just select "/src/PrintBeanTest.java" but not
"src"? In fact the directory must be selected as well if a file in it is
selected. I would think a solution like in the Eclipse Import / File
System dialog where the directory is automatically checked if a file in
it has been checked, would provide a clearer user feedback.
- Why has "/src/PrintBeanTest.java" a leading slash, but the directory
3) And when looking into the help, I discovered a broken link
- Section: Tasks / Edit, Update, Commit
- In the paragraph 'Committing your changes to the repository', the
first sentence is 'Once you are pleased with all your changes, it is
time to commit them to the repository', where commit is a link. The link
however does not point to a valid location.
