Converting a Project to Subversion


I have an issue with subversion using the latest IDEA (downloaded today). I imported a project from eclipse project files. The eclipse project was a maven project and was versioned with subversion. When I imported, it became a normal project and it didn't compile.

I reimported is as a maven project, and it works great now, but it seems to not be able to detect subversion. Eclipse has a way to 'connect' or 'disconnect' a project from SVN, but I can't find such an option in IDEA. How do I make it detect the existing subversion repository for my project?

IntelliJ usually just knows the project is under revision control based on the SCM metadata (in the case of Subversion the .svn directories in the working copy).

I have never had IntelliJ NOT detect a project was under revision control by Subversion. Do the .svn directories exist in your working copy?

Maybe try checking the project out from Subversion again?
