With 'metadata' I refered to the directory with the same name in which Eclipse stores it workspace settings, etc.
I think I boiled the problem down: Eclipse arbitrary deletes and creates files in this directory. So--in Subversion's view--some files went missing and others popped up (without being under svn's control). As these files are needed by Eclipse, you must add these everytime you commit, otherwise a checkout of it simply breaks.
This idiocy prevents any simple approach to that problem--and you must rely on tools/plugin like Subclipse, which take care to mark obsolete files deleted and add the new ones. I'd really like to know what the Eclipse developers see as advantage of this approach... :-/
Anyway, as this is definitely not a TSVN problem (rather a Subversion-Eclipse-interaction one), I'd think we'd schould close this thread :) If someone knows of a magic Subversion property which is assignable to a directory and says something like "always commit this and it contents as-is": I'd be happy to hear of it ;)
Kind regards / Mit freundlichen Grüßen
