I am not taking it personally, I am saying to be more explicit in
indicating that this is your opinion only. You often word stuff in
absolute terms as if there can be no other point of view. You have 70
developers and only one uses the Synch view, that doesn't tell you
anything? I have used Eclipse since pre-1.0 and used the CVS client up
until about 15 months ago when I switched to Subversion. I initially sort
of likes the Synch view because I was new to CVS, but long before Eclipse
3.x came out I had pretty much stopped using it. This could just be
because I work on smaller projects than you where I do not have any
trouble keeping up with what is going on just via commit emails.

I think my point was more about Subversion vs. CVS than the two Eclipse
clients. I just find branching and related concepts so simple in
Subversion that the feature is easy to use for me.

The specific features you have mentioned that I was indicating that I
would not expect to ever see are these:
o commit sets
o using synch in any way related to branching/merging
o apparently you also see a combination of the previous two
Again, not that I am against them being added, I just do not see it
meshing with the way the Subversion libraries work and therefore not
possible to implement.
