[Subclipse-users] SVN: Accepting new directory versions "hides" my locally updated files (outgoing updates)

From: John Chesher <jchesher_at_hobsons-us.com>

I'm an old CVS user that recently began using SVN. I've read many
threads in the archive beginning like that ;-) and I suspect that I just
don't understand how Subversion is intended to work, so I'm hoping
someone can shed light on this scenario.


Say for example I begin with an Eclipse project that is synched with
SVN, I edit 2 files, then do a synch and commit ONLY ONE of the files.
My Team Synch perspective now shows me that I have incoming updates for
all directories in the past that lead to the file I changed. So, I
accept those changes into my workspace. At this point, the second file
(the one I updated but did not commit) disappears from my Team Synch
perspective. I can re-synch the project and it still doesn't appear.
The only way to get it to show up there again as a file with an outgoing
update is to do a Team-Synch on just that individual file. Then, I can
do a synch on the entire project and it will show this file as
containing an outgoing change.


Can anyone explain this behavior and whether I am doing something wrong,
have a wrong assumption of how it should work, or if this is an SVN bug?


Also, I am working with a Windows XP client, Eclipse 3.2.2, MyEclipse
5.5.1 GA, and Subclipse 1.2.4.
