RE: [Subclipse-users] Question about checkout directory naming

I was using the prior version (0.9.105 I think). I now have 0.9.106.

There was a .project file and the project name does match the repository name. However, even if it had named the project according to that name, I don't see why the physical directory name on disk does not match the directory name from the repository.

I have tried 0.9.106 now and it does show the project name. It mostly resolves this problem. However, it seems it should allow specification of the project name (and default to what is found in .project) as well as specification of the physical directory name (and default to what is in the repository).

What version of Subclipse are you using? The latest version (0.9.106) had
a bug-fix in this area. The fix was basically that if the folder you
checked out had a .project file in it, then the checkout was using the
project name contained inside that file but the wizard was incorrectly
showing the folder name. If that were your problem, then you would have
seen the value in the .project file on the wizard and you could have typed
over it to give the name you want.
