Re: [eclipse.org-committers] Installing SVN

hmm
i have just the opposite i like SVN way better especially in refactoring (svn has move support) and that it has real directory support.
also that 1 commit somewhere in the tree is an atomic commit and the version number of the root also increments (i really love this)
so every commit is a snapshot of the tree.

but checkouts and i guess updates where not a problem of svn (the server part) but svn de client part (the plugin)
in the last version: 1.4.5 of subclipse this is fixed. It was a problem with to much logging.....

Hear! Hear! And I started drinking way too much coffee due to SVN because it gives me ample time ... Last year I wrote my first poem ever (and likely last) during a checkout:

 Oh, how I long for the days of CVS
 When checkouts were a bless
 Updates found to be a breeze
 And a build went in a wheeze
 Now we are old and wise
 It is svn that I despise
 A simple checkout takes forever
 And often it ends never
 It is hungry for files and directories
 About disk usage it has no worries
 And with its split personality
 Using it from the shell has a penalty
 But alas, progress should not be blamed
 Directories can now be renamed!

A sad SVN user

Ok, I won't pursue a career in this area, but it illustrates my frustration ...

Kind regards,

Peter Kriens
