[Subclipse-users] Migrating projects from CVS to SVN

I've just converted my CVS repository into an SVN repository (using the
cvs2svn python script) and I'm trying to tell Eclipse about it.

One way of "converting" a project from CVS to SVN under Eclipse is to
delete it (including files) and re-create it from the SVN repository. It
works, of course.
The problem is that I've got a few projects with files that are in
.cvsignore that I want to keep (for example a 'temp' subdirectory or
other files that are in my .cvsignore).
What I would normally do for a similar change from CVS to another CVS
repository (e.g. a pure copy of the CVS files on another server) would
be to use "Disconnect" in the "Team" menu, and reconnect to another
server. The synchronisation would then take care of the potential

The problem when I disconnect from CVS and try to re-connect to SVN is
that Subclipse generates an error because the folder already exists in
the repository (which is true, since I've used cvs2svn).
Is there any way to force this?

(I've also tried to delete the project without deleting its content, but
re-importing the project deletes the old files, in particular those that
were in cvsignore and not in the CVS or SVN repositories.)
