[Subclipse-users] Reattaching Projects Problem

Hi Subversion List,

I am a little bit confused about subclipse behaviour concerning existing
projects that get reimported into eclipse and then should be reshared via

Here is the scenario:

I am checking out a folder from a subversion repository via svn CLI. The
folder contains multiple eclipse projects. So I end up with a directory
structure like this:


I then use the Eclipse Import Wizard to import "Existing projects into
workspace" and choose the projects and am now able to work with them. From
Eclipses side everything looks fine.

The reason I am doing it like this and not import every project via
"Import->SVN->Checkout Projects From SVN" is, that I also need other
metadata files managed by subversion in the directory above the eclipse

As I want to commit changes I made to the code, I obviously want to have the
projects connected to the subversion repository they were initially checked
out from. As far as I can see, you are supposed to do this via "Team->Share

And then this happens:
The "Share Project with SVN Repository" Wizard warns me that: "Project
contains Subversion metadata folder" which I thought is well as I want to
reconnect it to the repository and merely need subclipse to recognize any
existing subversion configurations.
The Wizard also warns me that it is going to delete the .svn folders and
then states something which I do not understand. "In order for Subclipse to
automatically reconnect a project to a repository, the project root folder
needs to contain a Subversion metadata folder. Most likely it doesn't, or
you would not see this message."

So what is the "project root folder"? Is it the folder where my eclipse
projects reside in a.k.a the folder I checked out from the repository? Well,
that folder does contain subversion metadata?

What am I doing wrong here?
