Re: [Subclipse-dev] svn not detected in linked resources ?

We support Linked Resources in the manner recommended in the Eclipse
documentation for Team providers. Namely, we tolerate their presence
but otherwise ignore them.

There is little chance of anything better ever being done in Subclipse
though anyone is certainly free to work on it and submit a patch.
Keep in mind we rely on Subversion API to do all the real work and
Subversion has its own idea of what a working copy looks like and it
has no awareness of Eclpse-specific concepts like linked resources.
