RE: [Subclipse-users] Externals property bug - folder UI

Mark -

Thanks for the response. I still feel like it's a kind of bug, in either
the Subversion API itself or how the Subclipse plug-in reacts to the
.svn folders (or lack thereof in this scenario). I was just referencing
Tortoise if it helped reproduce the behavior.

I'm just frustrated with this behavior because there doesn't seem to by
any way around it, short of simply avoiding the scenario. If you live
with the false positives, you have to be careful to avoid them at every
commit. If you synchronize, override & update the "changes", Eclipse
will actually delete the local copy of your externals - completely
defeating the purpose. I understand why this happens, I'm just saying
it's no longer intuitive.

I have no idea what TortoiseSVN is doing, but those intermediate folders
are unversioned. They do not contain any .svn folder, you cannot add
content within them, and commands like svn info and svn status will
report that the folders are unversioned. We rely on the result of these
API's to know the status.
