One suggestion: Add the svn state and revision column to your folder. It is not that colourful but it works.

Betreff: [TSVN] Icon overlays and "Make Available Offline" in Windows XP

Hi there,

I keep my project workspace on a file-server, and use the "Make Available Offline" feature so I can work on my projects when I'm not in the office.

The problem is when you do that the operating system adds it's own overlay icon to the files and folders that are synchronised which seems to have precedence over the Subversion ones.  The result is I can't see the status of the files w.r.t. source control, which is much more important than having a visual reminder that I'm working on files that are "Available offline".

It would be great if your icon overlays either over-rode the Windows ones, or could be in a different corner of the file/folder icon.
