This is an eclipse plugin for the cvs replacement, subversion. Instructions on installing this in eclipse can be found at:
Some open source projects are starting to host their applications on subversion as opposed to cvs. Some compelling reasons for this are:

- Revision numbers are on a per commit basis as opposed to a per file basis.
- Directories are versioned.
- Renaming files/directories causes versioning.
