It seems you are checking the .project file into the source repository. I would suggest not checking in the .project file so users can have their own version of the file. Also, if you use the subclipse plugin it allows you to check out and configure a source folder as a java project. This process creates the correct .project for you(with the java nature),
I was trying to check out a project from SVN using Eclipse.
