Mark, please go back through your email before making statement such as the
First off, I can now see why you are saying Subclipse is working fine, even
when it is does not appear to be, and that is because you are divorcing
yourself from the APIs that you use, which are exhibiting the problems I
have described. So, I can tell you differently: JavaHL and JavaSVN,
libraries that your product uses, are not reading working copies correctly
that have been converted to 1.4 format by the 1.4 SVN client. There is no
confusion there, I can make it happen until the cows come home.
Secondly, I have said nothing about any problems with server versions.
Bottom line, Mark, is that for a group of people who have converted to SVN
1.4 and use Subclipse (or just svnant), it doesn't work.
Thank you for the opportunity for clarification.
