Re: [Subclipse-users] Copy/paste with folders

This is an Eclipse issue that has existed forever. Unlike when you
move something, when you copy Eclipse does not do anything to allow a
Team provider to be involved. There is no "copyHook" for team
providers as there is with move and delete. People have tried to use
listeners to detect when this happens and fix it, but it is not
possible to make it work.

We added a Team > Copy/Export option as something of a workaround. So
that you can do a copy that we do know about and can do it right.
