Hi Steve,

Directly below the issue ID field, so the top two lines looks like:
(I'm using lots of '_' to indicate spaces and to avoid line breaks)
Commit to:_________________________Bug-ID:======

'===!' indicates a combobox.

Yes, that's the default (I think >99%). See below for more ideas.

Since TSVN adds line(s) to the log message and the bugtracker has to parse
the log message, it's free for everyone to add similar lines manually.
So a TSVN created line could read:
Issue-ID: 455,456,457 Issue-Status: fixed

If someone wants more detail, (s)he can always write:
Issue-ID: 455, 456 Issue-Status: fixed
Issue-ID: 456 Issue-Status: closed
Issue-ID: 457
Which means, that issue 457s status doesn't change.

For convenience you could add an 'Add' button to the dialog behind the
bug-id and status selectors. The add button would just append the line to
the current log message in the editor. This way people can enter any
combination of bug ids and status they like before committing. If someone
enters a bug id and/or status and hits OK without hitting add first, behave
as TSV does now.
