[Subclipse-users] Subclipse feature request - batch compare & repository structure

Hi, I am the SCM admin for our developers. We have recently moved from CVS to
SVN, and overall things are much better.

However, our developers are very used to the cvs way of things and have made
certain requests.

1) Batch compare.
In CVS users could compare a file on their local workspace with the one in
the repository. Subclipse supports this same functionality. However, in CVS,
users could select multiple files/projects and do a compare with HEAD.
Subclipse only shows the "each other" option and "latest from repository" is
grayed out. Is there a way to do a batch compare or does subclipse plan on
adding this feature in the future?

2) Repository structure
Like #1, in CVS users would select multiple projects and go replace all with
HEAD. Using the latest version of subclipse users now have the option of
replacing with tag/branch.

However, this new feature only allows the user to enter 1 url to the

Our repository layout:


Based on our repository layout, the user needs to specify two different URLs
for the two projects (project1 and project2). Subclipse does not allow this.
I am quite sure this is because subclipse has no understanding of the
repository layout. However, subversive does have an understanding of the
layout of your repositories and supports a batch replace from the
tags/branches under each project.

Are there any plans for having a similar feature in subclipse?
