RE: [TSVN] Identifying Branches vs. Trunk

Sounds like the $HeadURL$ keyword would probably be the best option for
files.

I guess what I'd like to see is for TSvn to provide an option for
displaying a file named after the checked out directory at the root. For
instance, if I check out "repo/trunk" to my local "repo" directory,
there would be a file named ".tsvn:trunk" or ".tsvn:repo-1.0" for the
"repo/branches/repo-1.0" directory. The ".tsvn:" part can be whatever -
it should just make the file name unique.

Like I said, I may be alone on this, but having some sort of identifier
would be nice. Finding out at commit-time, or worse-yet after a commit,
is just a bad idea. With these, a user would either have to reapply all
their changes and/or revert to an older revision. Again, this may not be
as big of a deal as I'm making it out to be. Either way, thanks for the
ideas!

Sounds like you have already found the obvious ones. What else did you
have in mind?

You could enable keyword expansion (see SVN book)
http://svnbook.red-bean.com/en/1.1/ch07s02.html#svn-ch-7-sect-2.3.4

The $HeadURL keyword would allow you to include the URL within text
files. Of course, the user has to be looking in the right place to see
it.

BTW, file/folder properties (TSVN tab) will also show the URL.
