I just installed the SVN client from http://www.polarion.org/projects/subversive/download/update-site/ and an using csvdude to host my project. I pushed my project to cvsdude and am able to create a new workspace and pull the project back down, but after doing that, Eclipse doesn't provide all the nice IDE features that it did on my original project. For example: in my original project, when I highlight a variable, Eclipse also highlights all instances of that variable in my code. In the source controlled project, it no longer does that. Also in my original project, the classes are all nicely organized by package, but in the source controlled version, they are displayed as folders and subfolders. How do I get the same functionality from a new workspace created from the source controll server as I have in my original project?

You should add eclipse project metafiles like .project and .classpath to the repository
