Occasionally, when I'm working on a fix in a branch, I want to commit
that fix to both the branch and the trunk. Currently, I have to commit
to branch, switch to trunk, merge the two, commit the trunk, and switch
back to the branch. That's a lot of work just to commit what I've got to
two places. Granted, this only happens when I know that both files are
the same. Actually, in most of my cases, I tend to be in the trunk when
I'm fixing it and commit just that change to the trunk and branch.
I know the prospective risk that is being taken is that one might commit
more than the desired change; but that can happen any number of ways if
someone's not paying attention, so I don't think that's a very good
argument against this capability.
Anyway, what're the chances of adding something like this to TSvn? I
know there's nothing that Svn has like this, but it can be mocked up
pretty easily. For instance, have a checkbox and textbox to specify
whether to do a dual-commit as well as a secondary URL. Behind the
scenes, there are simply two commits that take place (actually, I may be
wrong; you may have to complete the previously mentioned process). There
could be a few other things added later to help resolve issues that may
come up from this (i.e. compare and maybe only allow dual-commits for
files of the same repository version).
Personally, I know I would benefit from this feature. I imagine others
