Lock Property Feature Request

From: Thurston Stone <tstone2077_at_hotmail.com>

This is just a suggestion.


I noticed that the Subversion tab on the Window's Properties of a file has
Lock owner and Lock creation date. These values aren't (nor should they be)
populated automatically if a remote user locks a file. It did take me a bit
of time, however, to find out how to see who had a lock and their comments
(using the check for modifications, check repository).


It seems deceptive having a Lock Owner and Lock Creation that can't be
populated accurately (unless the lock is local). My suggestion is instead
of having a Lock owner and Lock creation date in the dialog, have a 'Get
Lock Info' button which can bring up a separate dialog. This can check the
remote lock and lock information of a file right from the properties dialog
box (including if a lock was broken or stolen) at the user's request.


I'm not sure if this is the right forum for this suggestion, but I found it
on the TortoiseSVN website. Please let me know if there is a better place
for this suggestion.
