I appreciate that you show in an interest in this project and that you take
the time to report bugs and even submit patches for features and bugs. Not
a lot of people bother to do that, but you do. So thanks. But yes, I do
get pissed off and take it personally when you repeatedly toss in this
backhanded snipes. Especially the implication that this is all easy and we
just choose not to make it work the way you want.

As to your question ... I am not the one that brought this up or made those
comments, I believe it was Dan North. However, you already gave the
answer. The Pending Ops view is faster because it only shows outgoing
information. It is purely a local operation.

If you recall, I am the one that has raised the issue in the past as to
whether the Pending Ops view is obsolete and should be removed. Enough
people have responded that I would not consider it anymore. That being
said, I agree with you that people that want to see this sort of
information probably ought to use the Synchronize view. I think it is safe
to say that if this project had not started before the Synch framework
existed, that we probably would not have a pending ops view.

Let me also explain why I am currently working on this view.

I recently made a change to Subclipse to add a feature that I needed. I
support an IBM tool that generates JSP and XML files (that are versioned)
by deleting and recreating the file. Subclipse sees the delete and issues
an svn delete. Therefore, the change is not treated as a modification. So
I added support for a SVN property you can set named "DeferFileDelete".
When this is set to true, then Subclipse will just let Eclipse delete the
file without running svn delete. Problem solved.

Since I was making a change like this, I thought it was a good time to
improve the Subclipse handling of "missing files". These are files that
Subversion thinks should be in your WC but are not.

The first change I committed was one that TortoiseSVN has. The commit
dialog now show missings items (deselected). If you select them and
commit, we run svn delete and then commit them. Basically the same thing
we do for unversioned files and adds.

The Synch view has problems though. It shows missing files as incoming
changes (I think this might be what you are seeing with Maven synchs). I
am not going to try to fix this, maybe Martin will someday? What I needed
was a way to flag the item as deleted (which is harder than it sounds since
the file does not exist). So I decided to start showing missing items in
the Pending Ops view and add an option there to mark it as deleted (or
revert). I have this mostly working but there is some flakiness I still
need to fix. Once the file is marked as deleted, the Synch view then works
