Ideas - plenty of them :-)

In 5 seconds thoght, after all being in windoze, Ctrl+DoubleClick, Ctrl+Enter
on a selected file or any other probably not used similar combination.
Ctrl+DoubleClick - select and lock the file then normal Enter or one more DoubleClick to open it?

I also find the long menu not too convinient, but I like the idea of a 2 level menu.
What about 3 level? If I can move Branching and related, merge, and probably some others
(on my Gentoo machine now, I cannot check) to L3 I'll be happy.
update, log, commit, lock/unlock are used 80% of the time; diff, browse - 15% of the tiem in our team.

BTW, while on locking and menus, will it be possible to have a single menu for lock/unlock?
It is a context menu, so it should work as a toggle (be unlock if file is locked, lock otherwise).
If a bunch of locked/unlocked files is selected, default to lock (the unlocked files).

Kalin.

P.S. Still havent tested the i18n issue with the TSVN r4334, sorry. Dealyed for tomorrow.
