Re: [Subclipse-users] Subclipse Export

When sharing common projects, there is not always a need for all users to
always have the svn metadata when they will not be committing any changes.
Exporting the entire parent directory and then importing the individual
projects into Eclipse is not a desirable workflow.

For one current, specific use case, I have several projects checked into
source control which are used as lab projects in a course I am developing.
Whether or not permissions are restricted in source control (in this case
they are), there is no need for the students to have the svn metadata.
Project checkouts would not be detrimental in this case, but exporting the
projects would be preferred.
