Me as well, I'm often using the keyboard to access the TSVN menu.

What is the problem with l10n? Would that mean that the same keyboard
shortcut like 'C' for Checkout would have to be used in each language? Then
I can understand not implementing shortcuts.

BTW the TSVN menu contains way too many entries (23). I think it would be a
good idea to move groups into submenus although I have no consistent idea
how to achieve this. See below for a suggestion. I guess that only 3-5
entries are used 95% of the time and the others could well be a bit further

I've got my most frequently used menu items (update, commit, show log, diff)
in the main context menu. I also had edit and resolve conflict there until
resolve conflict became a permanent entry.

Would it make sense to add some default groups and allow people to freely
move entries between groups. I suggest six groups, 0 being the windows
context menu and 1 the current TSVN menu.

0) Windows context menu
1) TSVN -> (Help, Settings, About)
2) TSVN -> "Working copy" -> (Cleanup, Branch / Tag, Switch, Merge,
Relocate, Export)
3) TSVN -> "File/Folder" -> (Update, Commit, Diff, Revert, Rename, Delete,
Add, Ignore, Update, Update to revision, Get Lock, Release Lock)
4) TSVN -> "Information" -> (Show Log, Annotate, Check for modifications,
Repository Browser, Revision Graph)
5) TSVN -> "Others" -> (Create Patch, Apply Patch)
Did I forget any? This is an obviously debatable suggestion, but it's a
suggestion. This is by no means the default layout that I'd suggest to ship
with TortoiseSVN, just an idea how entries could be grouped. The default
layout could have Update, Commit and Diff in Group 1. What do others think?
Could be nice, but maybe it's not worth the effort.
