The full error message is:
org.tigris.subversion.javahl.ClientException: svn: Directory '[...]/.svn' containing working copy admin area is missing
And when creating the .svn directory yourself in your local directory, the following error appears:
org.tigris.subversion.javahl.ClientException: svn: Unable to lock '<plugin project name>'
This seems to be a bug in Subclipse 1.2.4. The solution: do manually what the “share project …” wizard would do. That is:
- Create a new remote directory in the SVN repository view.
- Check that directory out on top of the existing project.
- Say yes to deleting the local resource: that means just the directory, not the files in it.
- Commit your files to SVN.
