[Subclipse-users] Ignoring .svn in an Eclipse project.

Now before you go off and say, "It doesn't show up on my projects!" We are
talking about a different kind of ignore. Like down at the Eclipse
workspace level.

We have a rather large web application (over 2500+ files and 500+
directories) that has been around for some time. We've recently migrated it
over to Subversion and using Subclipse in Eclipse. Since doing so, we've
notice switches between branches and the trunk are getting slower and slower
and slooowwerrrr.

So here's the problem, Eclipse does its own internal revisions on files and
directories for each project. Now these 'internal' project files are
replicated from the working directory to Eclipse's internal workspace. This
also includes the .svn directory. So with that said, Eclipse is also
internally keeping file revisions of the .svn folder. Therefore each switch
between a branch or the trunk is making changes to the .svn folder. In turn
Eclipse does more work trying to store all the file revisions it self. So
with each change, Eclipse takes longer and works system IO even harder.

So is there a way to tell Eclipse to ignore .svn folder from its own
internal revision system every project workspace? Or tell Eclipse not
revision hidden folders like the .svn directory?
