Just to clarify that. If I do not miss anything, current stable version of
JavaSVN (one included into 0.9.36) will work well with Subversion 1.3. wc
format (including dot_net hack). It will not use new "repos" entry property,
but will not fail. I think that at the time Subclipse for 1.3 is released
there will be a new version of JavaSVN with full support for 1.3 features.
