[Subclipse-dev] Suggestions

Hi there! I sent the suggestions below to the Eclipse team, but they told me that this regards to Subclipse plug-in, not Eclipse. So I'm sending it here. I hope you appreciate these suggestions because it will help me a lot.

One last thing I would like to add is that while synchonizing projects with the repository, it should run in less priority, so we can still work with Eclipse while the sync is running. Actually, while the sync takes place the editor becomes sluggish.

Best regards,

Edemilson Lima

Hello there!

I would like to suggest a few changes. I don't know if this concern to the
SVN plug-ins or the Eclipse itself, but I believe these changes will help a
lot of people, improving their jobs.

1) When copying or moving files or folders between folders or projects, it
should ignore any ".svn" and ".settings" folders. Actually, if we do such a
copy or move, it can do a mess with the SVN information, corrupting the
metadata between the project and the repository. To copy files I need to
export them and copy outside Eclipse. This is prone to errors and take much
more time.

2) In the Synchronize tab, with the "Change Sets" on, when I right click a
file or folder, and then clicking in "Reassign Changes To" it should stay in
the same place, and do not close the tree where I was. Because when I have a
lot of files to assign to a new Change Sets, it brings me to the new Change
Set tree, then I must go back and locate my original place. This takes a lot
of time and is prone to errors.

3) Again in the Synchronize tab, it should only consider the files that
there in that list when doing any operation. For example, if I run a
"Compare Each Other" between two folders there, it compares the entire
folders in the project. Also, if I select a folder, it exports the whole
project folder, not just the changed and new files that are in that list. In
my team we have a lot of developers, many times working on the same folders,
and our project is becoming bigger and bigger. Run a compare between two
projects takes a lot of time, because it looks every file (we use separate
projects for development, test, stage, and production). This simple change
could improve my work a lot, because I could check only the differences that
I made between the projects.

Thank you a lot for your attention, and thank again for this wonderful tool
that I can't live without. Please, if you can, send these suggestions to the
proper staff, if does not apply to Eclipse. I did try to contact the people
at Tigris a year ago about changes like these, but I have no success. Maybe
they listen to you.

Best regards,

Edemilson Lima
