[Subclipse-users] Bug in Team->Copy?

From: Jon Skeet <Jon.Skeet_at_clearswift.com>

It seems to me that Team->Copy has at least two bugs in it, as well as
missing functionality.
 
I came across Team->Copy when investigating the broken behaviour of
normal copy/paste of a folder. Here's what I've found:
 
1) If you Team->Copy a folder to elsewhere within the same project, it
tries to do an svn copy. However, it tries to copy it *to* a working
copy based on the workspace directory + project name.
 
2) If you Team->Copy a folder to a different project, it tries to do an
svn export even if the other project is under source control as part of
the same repository. Again, the destination appears to be formed
assuming that the project lives in a subdirectory of the workspace.
 
3) There's no way I can see to copy the folder and change its name, as
you can with the normal copy/paste operation (if it already exists).
 
The assumption about the destination is particularly worrying - we name
our projects differently to the directories containing them (for reasons
of disambiguation) and we keep our source separately from our workspace.
 
I couldn't immediately see any open issues about this, but perhaps I've
missed something?
 
Jon
