Automagically turning on SVN?

I think it would be nice if IDEA would automatically turn on SVN if a project's main ipr file is in a subverion controlled directory.

Many times I forget to enable svn after checking out project, or after generating a new idea project with maven.

Does it make sense to let IDEA auto-sense svn?

Hello Stefan,

project's main ipr file is in a subverion controlled directory.

Many times I forget to enable svn after checking out project, or after
generating a new idea project with maven.

This is in fact already implemented in Selena. If you actually tried to create
or check out a new project and that didn't work, could you please describe
the sequence of steps you did?

You are right, it works fine on Selena! Excellent :)

I'm using both Demetra and Selena. I'll be more specific next time.

Dmitry, I actually just had a case where I checked out a Maven2 project from svn, ran mvn idea:idea and then opened the project. It did not have SVN enabled. This is on Selena 6733.

Do you want me to file a JIRA or is there an existing issue?

Please file a new issue. The automagic may not work if the Maven task generates
some version control information in the .iml files it creates.
