I'm forwarding here a discussion thread from org.eclipse.mylar newsgroup.
Hopefully there are some comments there that you could analyse and register
as bugs or maybe just consider as enhancements.

Ok, I can understand that ... and yes I do not have an error, I "just" lost
the history. However I'd rather stick on a JavaSVN-like behavior meanwhile
as I've no clue to when Subversion 1.5 will be out. I tried switching to
JavaSVN in Subclipse preferences, but I still loose the history when I
rename the resource twice. Is it a "side effect" of the workaround applied
for javaHL in Subclipse ? Another problem is when I commit the rename (hence
commit the "addition" and the "removal" ... but again this is a common bug
to subclipse and subversive), then I try to show the resource history of the
new resource, I see in the "affected path" that there is indeed a deletion
and an addition.
When I double click on the deletion to see the content of the file that has
been deleted I got this error in the console :
non-existent in revision '26'

Number 2) is probably what I experienced, as I used TortoiseSVN before. I
just tried to change the password and perform a commit, and subclipse indeed
asked me the password this time. So I guess what I thought to be a bug in
Subclipse turns to be a feature (that Subversive don't have) ... nice ...
and sorry for my misunderstanding.

hmmm ... well ok, I don't know what arguments they gave, so they might have
been very persuasive :) the only one I have is it looked stranged to me as I
would have "naturally" expected my files to be shared after performing the
action "shared project" but that's alright, maybe I'm too acustomed to the

Thanks for your answers and comments. I've CC the Subclipse users mailing
list so that bug descriptions I'm putting here can be
investigated/registered. If I remember or experience more problems during my
Mylar demo I'll let you know.
