Re: [Subclipse-users] Ignore Whitespace During *Merge*

Those options are not available. I think things might have changed in
recent SVN releases, but the last time we touched this code the JavaHL API
did not expose any of these options to us in the API so we were not able to
expose them in our UI. As a C++ client, TortoiseSVN has access to the full
Subversion API.
