RE: [Subclipse-users] i can't delete folders (and commit them) in Subclipse 1.7

I've confirmed that we no longer try to contact the repository when
showing the menu. When the repository cannot be contacted, the menu
still comes up instantly and there is no delay/error until you actually
try to run an SVN menu option.

Something worth looking at is whether we are already making an API call
for some of the other menu options. If it is a 1.6 working copy, then
any API like info or status will throw an exception. That would let us
know to enable the upgrade option. If the API call works, then we know
to hide it.


I know we have tried really hard to NOT have to make any API calls when
showing the menu. So I do not recall if we are doing it or not. I
think we are, because I have seen some complaints about how you cannot
right-click on an item if you cannot contact your repository. This
implies we call an API that accesses the repository -- which of course
is bad if we do.
