    Important: Subversive SVN Connectors distributed from external location.
    Such scheme of distribution caused by licensing requirements.


Eclipse is very careful about IP rules and licenses - more careful than many other organizations. The Foundation's lawyers have determined that this separation of installations is necessary. For further questions on this topic, please contact license@xxxxxxxxxxx.
