[Subclipse-users] no repo paths for svn:externals in project explorer

Hi all,

I'm new to eclipse so bear with me please 8-)

We are developing in C using a Keil compiler (but not the ┬ÁVision
IDE). Up till now we have used CodeWright and a handcrafted makefile.

Our project structur is as follows:

    devBaseFolder unversioned
        devMakefile unversioned
        srcFolder subversion WC
            commonBuildFiles external
            module1 external
            module2 external

devBaseFolder and devMakefile are only used during development (mainly
to introduce macros to control #ifdef conditionals in the source).
For non-dev/-debug a project can be compiled by just checking out
srcFolder and running projectMakefile.

Trying to use this structur with eclipse/subclipse too, I got into
trouble 8-)

(Using eclipse 3.6m3, CDT 6.1m3, subclipse 1.6.x by the way)

I first created a new empty makefile project and tried to add my
srcFolder via checkout.
Unfortunately if found no way to do so from within eclipse.

I then used TSVN to check-out the source folder.
As eclipse didn't recognise the new folder as a WC, so I tried
team/share project and got the info, that that requires devBaseFolder
to be a subversion WC.

OK, second attempt:
Using the repository perspective I created a new project (based on an
empty folder in my repository - I may put devMakefile there in the
Then I added srcFolder as an external and updated.

So far that seems to do what I want, with one exception: the project
explore does not show repository paths for srcFolder and the
externals. Revisions and commit date for the files are shown though.

... hm, that seems to be normal, repo paths are never shown for
externals ...

Would it be possible to add them?
