Rather than showing an error like this:


Error: PROPFIND request failed on '/FuelAdvance.Components'

Error: PROPFIND of '/FuelAdvance.Components': 301 Moved Permanently


. would it not be more logical to follow the redirect and automatically
offer the user to relocate?


Many browsers will automatically update bookmarks without asking users if
there is a 301 redirect in place. Many RSS readers do this as well to make
the process of moving a feed easier. I just moved our repository from http
to https and if TortoiseSVN could have followed the 301 then I wouldn't have
even had to notify my users.


Either way - your product rocks!
