I've got a bunch of SVN repository configurations in my Eclipse and some of them don't work anymore. Now, the problem is that I can't seem to figure out a way to remove the old configurations. I'd really appreciate it if someone could tell me how to do that without installing Eclipse from scratch...

Thanks.

Lasse,
Are you trying to delete them from the repository explorer view or the history?

I'm talking about the list of existing repositories when doing "Team > Share Project > SVN" (I'm using the Subclipse plugin). I'm unsure about what you mean by "repository explorer view" and "the history"?

Open the SVN Repository view (or go to the SVN Repository Perspective) and choose "discard location" on the repository you want to remove.

Hope this helps...

Lasse,
Sorry. Some WSAD terminology leaked out. (They have a few custom names for things.) The repository explorer view is what you were talking about. It's the list of repositories. Ilja described how to delete from here.

When you create a new repository, it lists old ones (like autocomplete) in what I'm calling the history. To delete these, I had to go into the .metadata folder.
