I share and understand your pain.

I do not have a good answer...

I cannot think any good reason why a .classpath and .project file for
Eclipse cannot be checked into the repository together with the sources.

However, if the project team is using a diverse variety of IDEs, it
makes less sense. But, these days, it's possible to generate IDE
configuration files via Maven and/or Ant+Ivy.

It would be interesting to know what the Lucene and Solr committers
normally use: Eclipse? IDEA? Emacs? Vi? ...?
