Copy a package from one project to another project
Posted: Mon Sep 03, 2007 8:30 pm
is there a way to copy from one subversion controlled package to another project?
What seems to be happening is that .svn is also copied and then the files are marked with a big "!". I then have to delete the .svn directories manually.
Is there a brighter way of doing this? Best regards, Lars

The Eclipse Platform Team Services does not provide interface for intercepting resources copying. So, we cannot correctly handle the Copy/Paste actions in the pop-up menu. Instead you can use "Team->Copy To..." action.

I guess from functional perspective that appears to be OK.
But I assume that you have marked this as a show-stopper for subversive to leave the 'incubator' at eclipse.org. This appears to be a major usability issue; one can argue if that is an issue to eclipse.
In general: from what I experienced myself and read here in the forums, the support for resource operations and especially refactoring operations across projects is considered to be flawed. There is a mixture of usability and robustness issue, which easily lets you corrupt your client copy. Which in my case has already lead to some data loss for client changes.
From what I read in your comments, that must be a real issue to all team clients that are not file based, but implement some form of change set.
