[Subclipse-users] Branch compares with many projects

I'm trying to do a compare against a branch in Subclipse but it is not
working how I would expect. My repository layout is like this:

/trunk
  /project1
    /file1
/branches
 /release-1.0
   /project1
     /file1

I go under the Team menu and choose "Configure Branch/Tags", and then
add /branches/release-1.0 as a branch. If I compare file1 against this branch
it uses this nonexistent path: /branches/release-1.0/file1 and fails.

If I add /branches/release-1.0/project1 as a branch the compare works,
but there are some problems. First, the branch name is "project1",
which does not describe the branch. Second, this means I have to add
the branches for every project, for every branch. With M projects and
N branches that means I have add define M*N branches. In my case M is
~50 and N is ~7. That doesn't even count tags, which are even more
numerous.

I see that I can change my repository layout so that each project has
it's own trunk and branches directory but that causes other problems.
To branch each project I would have to branch them all individually
instead of doing it once at the top level. There is an analagous
problem when checking out.

Is there something I'm missing here? If not, are there any plans to
make this work in the future? What would be ideal for me is to define
a relationship such that /branches/release-1.0 is known to be a branch of
/trunk, and then all files (in any project) under /trunk can look for
a branch copy under /branches/release-1.0. If it exists, then show
that branch in the compare dialog.

I am not subscribed to the list so I would appreciate a Cc: on any
replies. Thanks in advance,

-Adam
