What are your plans for JavaSVN? Are you going to purchase it from Alex
so that you can make it EPL? I do not see how you get your plug-in
accepted past the Eclipse.org lawyers unless you do something like this.

Speaking only for myself, all I can say is "I don't know". I am not
flat-out against the idea. However, it seems that our teams already had a
great opportunity to work together and instead you chose to create a
competing product. In addition, in your attempts to market your own
product, instead of doing so based solely on its own merits, you made the
choice to denigrate Subclipse. Based on these items, I would guess that
your idea of cooperating would be for us to just abandon Subclipse and
start working with you on your code. That does not sound terribly
appealing to me.

Regardless, I wish you well. If you succeed in joining Eclipse.org and
your product becomes the de facto standard for SVN, so be it.
