I haven't had a chance to update from r3197 yet. But a suggestion anyway:
Have two comboboxes for the repo browser url. The first defines the url to
the root of the repository; the second defines the path within the
I guess ideally, each repo url would be cached, and also the second combobox
would cache the previously-typed paths too - but only offer those that are
from the currently-selected repo. If a path is found to be invalid in a
repo, it is removed from that repo's history.
There would have to be validation such that if the repo url changes (when it
loses focus, I guess, rather than just being typed in), the path combobox
gets blanked, to prevent a path that was valid in the previous repo being
tried in the changed-to repo. And it's probably often to want to simply get
to the root of a repo anyway, so it seems like a good default (to me).
What do you think?
This would be appropriate both when starting a repo browser randomly (ie,
right click | repo browser anywhere - both comboboxes should start blank)
and starting it from within a working copy (both comboboxes should start
populated according to where in the WC we're invoking from).
This would also make it (arguably) less of a priority for an admin to
install that PHP script to list the available repos; once users discover
them, they're cached.
