If IBM does skip 3.1, it would reduce the need greatly.  Of course the 
1.0.x release supports it fine.  I had heard that they were using 3.1.
  I was referring to RAD 7, which should be released this year.
Honestly, when I look at this feature in CVS, I still have no idea  what it  does or what it is trying to tell me.  So I have no idea what  supporting  it would mean for Subverison.  In other words, sorry, I cannot answer.
   I am not sure what you mean, but the whole reason is to see commits 
grouped by change sets (in case of SVN it will be per revision). So, I 
won't have to open history view for project or resource and then scan 
trough affected paths like it is now, but instead will be able to see 
this information right in the Synchronize view. This would speedup 
browsing trough changes and help to review them quicker because I won't 
have to wait while history view fetch affected paths when I move to next revision. 
You gave this scenario once before.  I understand this part and agree with 
the concept of the feature.  I just meant my question literally.  I cannot 
visualize what the information looks like and therefore how we would get 
it.  I do not use CVS, so I have not really seen it in action.  I have 
tried checking out various Eclipse projects so that I could use those to 
see the data, but I have not had a lot of success.  The one time I got 
data to show it made no sense to me.  I think this is because I have not 
figured out a way to back-date my workspace so that the Synch view will 
then have a lot of changes to show me.  I should probably checkout an 
active project like Mylar and then just wait a week to try it.
  You can do as you described, it should work. Another option is to checkout CVS project and then compare it with some revision or previous tag. Result will be shown in Synchronize view, so you can enable Change Sets mode (available since 3.1) or if model support is enabled  in Team / CVS / Synchronize/Compare / Allow models you can activate "Change Sets" model (since 3.2).
  Here is how it look like. So you can see user, date and commit comment for each change set. For svn it would be a good idea to show revision.
