|RE: [eclipse.org-committers] Installing SVN|
The Subversive Installation instructions are actually quite clear. You just
have to read them carefully and not assume that you know better; I got
it very badly wrong too.
The problem is that the Eclipse contribution is layered on a non-Eclipse
product. Why isn't it in Orbit?
Note also that if you want interoperability with other tools such as TortoiseSVN
you must use Window | Preferences | SVN | SVN Connector to select the development
rather than default connector kit. (SVN recently changed its magic version number.)
Having now used both CVS and SVN extensively, I cannot recommend CVS
too strongly. Every time you copy or refactor in an SVN area expect nightmares.
