Feature request: Current checkout behaviour

From: Maik Hassel <hassel_at_simplyefficient.ca>

Hello - I just tried to evaluate version 0.9.37 as a replacement for our
current Subversion frontend (for Java development) . It already failed
at the checkout stage due to lack(?) of some basic functionality:

a) Checking something out as a new java project when having separate
source and output folders. Problem: While eclipse creates the project
propperly with a src folder, the plugin checks out everything in the
main project folder, ignoring the src folder. This should be a very
basic functionality??? (I used "checkout as...")

b) Some users check out only parts of a source tree. To illustarte the
problem, lets assume we check out only com/a/b/c/somefile.java. Due to
the package nature of java, the folder hirarchy HAS to be created
somehow. Currently, only somefile.java is placed in the project root.
While this is annoying, it would be ok if I had the chance to create the
package structure manually and check the file out into the manually
created folder. I wasn't able to do that, I tried the check-out-into....
but only get error messages like "cannot create project".

So I tried to do the checkout manually via command line or other front
ends, but then Subclipse doesn't recognize the source as beeing under
version control....

Am I missing anything, am I doing something wrong or are there any plans
of fixing/implementing these features?

Thanks for any comments
