Re: [Subclipse-dev] checking out project with a really long name on windows

From: Eugene Kuleshov <eu_at_md.pp.ru>

  Apparently there is a workaround for that in Subversion FAQ
http://subversion.tigris.org/faq.html#long-paths

  It even work from Subclipse, but only if I don't use default workspace
location and specify absolute path where project should be checked out.
So, it seems like this error happen because Subclipse is using path like
C:/fooo/boo instead of true Windows paths like C:\fooo\boo, but if I
manually specify path like the latter one pointing to the workspace
location, Subclipse fail to create project on checkout. Is there any way
to address this?

  Thanks
