About Subversive Team Provider
The Subversive plug-in enables you to work with Subversion repositories from the Eclipse workbench in almost exactly the same way that has long been possible with CVS repositories via the CVS plug-in bundled in the standard Eclipse distribution. General features of the Subversive plug-in are quite similar to those of the CVS plug-in:
- Browse remote repositories (in this case, Subversion repositories)
- Add a project to the repository and check out projects from the repository
- Synchronize a project to see incoming and outgoing changes
- Commit, update and revert changes
- See resource change history
- Merge changes
Similarity to the CVS plug-in is Subversive's major guiding principle. The goal is to ensure that both plugins use similar concepts, semantics, and interface for similar things. At the same time, Subversive enables you to benefit from all of Subversion's features including those which differ from, or are not present in CVS.
Subversive and Eclipse
Subversive is now an official Eclipse technology project. The project home is at www.eclipse.org/subversive, and Subversive development and support are now hosted there. However, you can get Subversive information and downloads right here. Where we don't host something (e.g. the bug tracker) there are links to its location at eclipse.org. If there's any info missing that you think really ought to be here, please let us know.
