Switching from Subversive back to Subclipse

If you switch from Subversive to Subclipse, you will find that projects that were attached to subversive in existing workspaces will not offer you the option to Team=>Share... There are a couple workarounds for this:

Annoying and Tedious Way
  1. Before switching to Subclipse, Team=>Disconnect your subversive projects
  2. Uninstall Subversive
  3. Install Subclipse
  4. Team=>Share away

Annoying but Simple Way
  1. Toss everything and check it back out again with Subclipse

Atomic but Quick Way
  1. Uninstall Subversive
  2. Install Subclipse
  3. Quit eclipse
  4. Go to your workspace folder and run:
    find .metadata/.plugins/org.eclipse.core.resources/.projects -name 'properties.index' -delete
  5. Restart eclipse
