Does anyone know how I can use Eclipse to edit an existing checkout, for instance to use it with my jhbuild checkouts? The best I can do so far is use Eclipse’s File/Import…/”Checkout Projects From CVS…” feature, but that puts a new copy of the code in ~/workspaces/. Eclipse’s File/Import…/”Filesystem” also seems to copy the code into ~/workspaces/ instead of just letting me edit the code.
Anjuta and KDevelop can do this, but I’d really like to use something more sane. I’m a bit afraid of Eclipse’s apparent complexity and odd new jargon, but I’d like to give it a chance, if I can get started.
