basically requiring a commit on the project, that's why you can't do it
from the SVN Repository Browsing perspective (a read-only perspective).
So check out a local copy of the project if you haven't already, and go
to "Team - Lock" from the right click menu, either from a tree view or
just from the open file itself. You'll then be prompted to commit the

You may want to read about Locking in the manual, since it's fairly
special case kind of feature.

>> 2) How to get the .project file to show up in the Resource
perspective project tree.
I haven't had any luck showing .project and .classpath files, except
with the "Navigator" view, which is the "tree" for Java perspective. It
shows them by default. You can show the view by using Quick Access
(Ctrl+3) or by going to Window-Show View-Navigator.
