Sure. After doing a merge or an update which results in a conflict,
you can bring up the eclipse compare editor with Edit Conflicts. The
way I have worked with this editor in the past is first pull in all
non-conflicting changes, then hit save. This will save my changes to
disk and redo the compare, so that all those conflicts vanish from the
view. Then I continue going merge by merge, saving every once in a
while to refresh the view and remove any conflicts I've resolved.

What I observed with subversion was that after I did the first save,
the compare wouldn't update, i.e. any conflicts I had resolved would
still show up. Secondly, the copy change buttons wouldn't work any
more. So if I clicked copy current change to right pane, nothing would

I looked at the CVS CompareInput and it uses the DiffNode.fireChanges
in save to force the compare to be redone, so I ported somethign
similar over.

Let me know if you need more detail, or if you aren't observing the
same behavior, pre-patch, that I am. Maybe something is messed up on
my end.
