We have been using subclipse .psf files as a means to distribute the
source code and set up the projects. It's a good way to manage a
consistent development setup, and is quite straightforward to use. You
are right, we could tell people to use an external svn tool to checkout
a working copy, then import it (effectively bypassing subclipse). But
then we'd have to scrap the .psf files which we like.

Are you saying that we can already use nested subprojects in subclipse

If so, how do I install 1.3.x, and what sort of time scales might these
features be introduced into a stable release (1.2.x or 1.4.x I assume)?

Thanks for your help,
