Yepp, so maybe Rainers suggestion with tsvn: property for it then.
I was thinking that setting trunk, branch and tags dir would be
beneficial for the UI.
Just think about how much simpler it would be to branch/tag, just supply
a name and
off TSVN go, well, unless you specifically entered a full URL in wich
case it would
work just as it does today.
Getting tags/branches into the right folder seems awfully difficult for
a n00b, well
*caugh* even I do those misstakes every now and then.
