Re: [TSVN] Starting RepoBrowser using TortoiseProc and svn: link

The problem is that I would like to open the RepoBrowser from a web
link. I know I can browse the repository using a web browser, but it
doesn't have all of the functionality that the RepoBrowser has. It
would be nice to simply click on a link and have the RepoBrowser open
to the specified http:// URL. I have not been able to find any way to
do this.

What if the RepoBrowser command checked for http:// in the path and if
it found it would then use the path from http:// to the end of the
string? That way you could use <a
href="svn://http://myserver.com/repo/trunk">Browse the repo</a> to
open the RepoBrowser and have it point to a http based repository.
This would then not affect using svn://myserver.com/repo/trunk.
