I agree with not wanting conflicting menu items. That's why my original request was to only have them for the TSvn submenu. If they were configurable, it'd be even better.

As far as requiring a reboot is concerned, it's already "required", so if they don't do it... Well, let me just whip out an old quote: Shutup and color :-)

It's a little worse than that actually (depending on the OS version).
If we define e.g. &Checkout and then the user switches to german, the 'C' will be active even though the menu now has &Auschecken. At least, until you reboot.

Also, when we first *had* those shortcuts, many users complained that their default shortcuts were now suddenly used twice (and I remember some very nasty insults in my direction from some of those people).

So you see: if I implement the shortcuts, I get slammed from those who don't like shortcuts doubled (something which we can't avoid 100%). If I don't, you guys complain.

(The song I'm listening to right now may be the most fitting to this situation ;) "EAV - Leckt's mi do am oarsch"

Ick! "Working copy"??
I can also check out a working copy, update, revert, ....
Almost *everything* in TSVN is working copy related.

And again 12 entries...

"Diff" would also be an information.

Just FYI: such a change is not done right away. This requires a big change to how the shell extension now handles the context menu.
