Re: Deleting files outside Eclipse

Thats strange...in fact you are blaming the vcs for something it has no
control over.

Maybe you could whip up a script to synchronize the svn checked out copy
of your project with the generated stuff from Xilinx? Or maybe Xilinx
can make their IDE vcs aware :)

If you are on unix you might create a copy and move script (or alias)
that just calls svn equivalents of these commands when the scrips are run.
