Subversion usage - best practices?

Postby Mardaneus » Mon Feb 14, 2011 10:36 am

I'm looking for best practices to use Android projects with Subversion. Actually I'd like to prevent committing Eclipse specific files (gen and bin folder, .classpath and .settings, ...) to the repository. But if I try to do that, somehow my Eclipse messes up after checking out the project.

Is there a list of best practices to set up a Android Subversion repository? Or what is the best way to check out a project?

See a Google Code Project for an example: http://code.google.com/p/apps-for-android/source/browse/#svn/trunk. Most of the projects in this repository don't contain any IDE-specific files.

Mardaneus,

What I found works best is to add the project, then just delete the bin directory. I've tried to trim down what I commit before and it has always caused problems checking out the project. I'd be interested if you find a process that works better.
