Since Mark Phippard has been quoted as joining Polarion on a flyer included in the EclipseCon information pack, perhaps the combination of the existing skills and technology will finally bring kosher subversion support for Eclipse by default.Even worse is that this same statement has been included in the two-sentence blurb that gets repeated in aggregators like Planet Eclipse.
This is completely untrue.
However, I have recently started a new job at CollabNet, which I am very excited about, and will eventually blog about in more detail. I am assuming that the author of the post somehow got confused about this detail. CollabNet, as well as myself, are very committed to Subclipse and will continue to ensure that it is the best provider of support for Subversion in the Eclipse IDE. In addition, CollabNet provides support for Subclipse in their Subversion support packages available at openCollabNet.
By the way, the Subversive project being provisioned at Eclipse.org, does not mean that the Subclipse-based proposal cannot also be provisioned. Although eventually there does have to just be one project, it is still early in the process. Our proposal got put on hold while I was looking for a new job. I could have advanced it to the next stage back in late November but decided not to. Once the dust settles on new job at CollabNet I will provide more updates on the proposal.
Update: The text of the EclipseZone article has been updated to remove the part about me. Thanks.
