Re: [Subclipse-users] commit or update of a WorkingSet

Thanks for the comment, Mark.

- In my working style, at least, it would be handy to have the actions
be available on the WorkingSet, even if the result was individual
commits/updates on each of the underlying projects.

- In this particular case, the projects all do map to parts of a single
SVN working copy. In fact, Eclipse's Package Explorer indicates the
subdirectory each one comes from and the project properties indicate the
whole Subversion URL for the project root. So it seems one could tell
that the projects were all part of one working copy. One cannot
necessarily translate that into a single commit/update at a higher level
in the directory tree (one would have to be sure that the projects in
the working set constituted all of the working copy). However, it does
seemm in principle that one could pass all of the related directories to
a single commit/update, if the API between Subclipse and Subversion
allowed that.
