    Eclipse 3.2: http://downloads.open.collab.net/eclipse/dev-builds/e3.2
    Eclipse 3.3: http://downloads.open.collab.net/eclipse/dev-builds/e3.3

    For an overview of the installation process, you can view the instructions for the CollabNet Desktop. Just note that you will be using the above URL in place of the URL in the instructions for the CollabNet Desktop.

    Subversion Server and Repository:

    The merge client will work against any 1.0+ version of Subversion server. However, in order to fully test all of the merge tracking features both the client and server have to be running Subversion 1.5. You can download the server binaries from openCollabNet site. In addition, the merge tracking feature also requires that your repository contains merge tracking information. This will be created over time when using a Subversion 1.5 client, but for an existing repository it will not be present. You can download a sample repository from this site to use as a starting point in trying this feature. You can also use your own repositories, you just need to take the time to create branches and sample changes after updating the client and server to 1.5 so that the merge information is created.
