Re: [Subclipse-users] bug with initial project import from eclipse using team-share project

Everything you described is how it is supposed to work and how it was intended.

Team > Share Project is the recommended approach. This does an
"in-place import" so that you do not have to checkout again after you
import. This requires at least two commits.
