RE: [Subclipse-users] Commit problems

The files were not spread across multiple projects. It is certainly
possible that this is a case of developer error, but it would have to be
developer error aided by UI error. Our repository got a set of files
from the developer, who says that after this commit he had no changes in
his outgoing view. After resynchronizing, an additional 4 outgoing
changes appeared. We have had several developers (myself included) have
the problem that a file left unchecked in the commit dialogue will be
removed from the outgoing view after commit, which could be the case
here. Is this problem fixed in 1.1.8?

It is not possible to have a partial commit, unless these files are
spread across multiple projects. It just cannot happen at the
Subversion level. There have been some UI issues in the past,
particularly when using the Synchronize view, which would make it easy
for a developer to do a commit, followed by an update, where the latter
"backdates" their working copy. This would make it appear, looking at
the local files, that certain changes were missiing.

svn log and svn diff should allow you to verify what was in the commit.

Since you are using Eclipse 3.2, I'd strongly recommend that you install
Subclipse 1.1.8.
