Ok, I admit I didn't ask first if I can name my project "Tortoise_SVN_"
or not. In fact, when I started it already was a registered project at
tigris.org. And AFAIK, projects registered there have to be approved by
tigris.org people before it goes online? So I thought the name was ok.

(and your LICENCE file only forbids the use of the "tigris" name, not
"SVN" or even "Subversion" - maybe you guys should change that!)

But if you guys are uncomfortable with a project using the "SVN" in its
name, I have no problem renaming TortoiseSVN to something else. Just
drop me a note (and give me some time to find another name, it surely
won't happen overnight).
