On the DZone site there's a new tutorial showing how to set up a new PHP project inside of one of the latest versions of the NetBeans IDE using a subversion repository as the base.
This article describes my experience in creating a PHP project in NetBeans IDE 6.5 from the repository version of Mediawiki. The project included 3 kinds of data that a developer would probably want to handle differently. Fortunately, the PHP Project from Existing Sources wizard made it easy to keep these 3 kinds of data separate from each other, as you will see in the following procedure.
The tutorial works through a seven-step process showing you how to point the software at your repository and have it pull in the information and automatically set up all the things you'll need (screenshots are included).
