[Subclipse-dev] SVN repository view

I have a question regarding how Subclipse connects projects to
repositories. My problem is that I get a new repository entry although I
already have one that ought to match.

The Buckminster plugin uses the ISVNClientAdapter to do most tasks. We
obtain it from an ISVNRepositoryLocation when we find one that is
appropriate (i.e. has a root that matches our desired root) among the
known repositories. We no match is found, we use the SVNProviderPlugin
to create a new instance.

We do this because we want to be able to read individual files in the
remote repository without checking them out, and when we finally check
something out, we don't want it to be bound to the workspace. The
binding stage takes place later on.

I start Eclipse on an empty workspace. I go in to the SVN Repository
Exploring and create a new entry:


When I look at the properties for that entry, it lists the "Repository
url" as stated and the "Repository root url" as:


Looks OK. After that, I start a Buckminster materialization. I verify
(using the debugger) that it finds the repository in question and use
the ISVNClientAdapter it obtained from it when the checkouts are made.

The checkout ends with a loop where Buckminster binds everything to the
Eclipse workspace (i.e. it creates the projects). Somehow, Subclipse is
notified of this and maps the projects to a SVN repository. My problem
is that Subclipse now decides to create yet another repository location
where the "Repository url" is exactly the same as the "Repository root url".

How can I prevent that the new repository location is created? I want
the projects attached to the location that is there already.

Kind regards,
Thomas Hallgren
