[Subclipse-users] Restore deleted files

Are there any plans for Subclipse to let you restore deleted files? This is a feature I really miss from CVS.

I don't know whether Subversion lets you query a directory for deleted paths. If so, you could present those files in a dialog, the way Eclipse's CVS client does.

If not, a (less elegant) solution would be to make users find the revision containing the deletion. Then they could right-click the deleted file, and restore it (or at least view its contents.) Internally, I suppose you would have to ask SVN for the previous revision's copy of that file.

Currently, this isn't possible, partly because of a bug I reported a few months ago (#902). So your only option is to revert the entire revision, which could be a real pain if your project has changed significantly.

Or am I missing something obvious? The last discussion I could find in the forums on this topic was from 2005.
