[Subclipse-users] creating a patch doesn't include new files

Hi,

I don't know if this is a problem of svn itself or the eclipse plugin so i
ask it first here on the mailing list.

When i am creating a patch it doesn't include new files. This is quite
annoying if you ask me because now i have
to make a patch and then also send all new files that are also part of the
patch as seperate files.

It should give me an option to select the new files that should be part of
the patch.

The same holds for creating a branch of the current working copy (width
changes and new files)
For example i was working on some new features for our project (web
framework wicket) but
i came to the conclusion that this shouldn't be in the trunk so i made a
branch and said the current
working copy. Then it does everything right except that it doesn't include
new files
So now i have a branch that doesn't compile. I first have to switch to it
(that didn't happen automaticaly which is another problem) then revert the
changed files (because those were committed) but do commit the new files
so that others can checkt it out without missing files.

What i expect to happen if i have changes in my working copy of the trunk
and i want to branch this:

I choose/create the branch folder
i gives me an option which new files i also want to commit.
It commits all the changed and the selected new files to that new branch.
The working copy is then all switched to the new branch and i don't have any
outgoing changes anymore (because everything is committed)

Is this assumption wrong? Do i something that is not the svn way?
