I think that time when SVN plugin would be included with Eclipse
Platform is still years from now (if ever). So, I also agree with Mark
that approval of Subversive as an Eclipse project means nothing at this
point. As a sign of proof, that approval actually happens few months
ago, and project page still shows nothing.
On the other hand, I can't wait when those guys will start using
Bugzilla on eclipse.org. :-)

Note that Subversive still have to resolve legal and integration
issues around Subversion client they are using under the hood.
Polarion may have resources to do that. So maybe they are planning to
again pull a rabbit out of the hat and surprise everyone. We'll see...

I have feeling that you didn't meant to say Subclipse in some places
in that sentence, but I am not smart enough to guess what those places
Anyways, Subclipse project always been bounded with the lack of
resources and vendor support, since none of Subclipse committers are
working on the project full time and all of us have other interests as
well. But now we have some hope that things may change...
