Hmm... I can see that this is not quite as simple as I thought the first
time. Well, maybe not...
When I right-click on a folder and bring up the Repository Browser, it
is picking up where I am in the repository tree based on the folder that
I right-clicked on. So it does at least have that piece of information
where it can then calculate what the checkout folder would be for a
project that is deeper in the tree.
For example, if I have the root folder of my working copy as:
Which points at: svn+ssh://firstname.lastname@example.org/var/svn/repos-jobs/
I then create a folder structure in the repository like:
Now I want to get the BZ300 from the repository. The fastest way for me
to do this is to right-click on the C:\Jobs\B folder and go to the
Repository Browser. That then pulls things up as:
I then browse down to:
And right-click to checkout the BZ300 project files. The Repository
Browser would then need to be smart enough to set the default
checkout/working folder as:
Right now, the checkout directory field in the Checkout/Export dialogs
default to an empty box.
The advantage to an addition like this is so that you can quickly get a
deep portion of the tree without either manually creating all of the
intervening folders, or checking out large portions of a project tree.
