Re: BUG In with the "..." buttons?

From: Mark Pickersgill <mpickers_at_tpg.com.au>

The repo-browser seems quite capable of being invoked with a blank url...for example when you've never browsed a repository before, it just displays nothing. That's what I would have expected if there's nothing in the URL field and you clicked on the "..." button.

As for the capital bug in the subject:
a - it makes it clear what it is so people can at a glance ignore it or view it if they're interested.
b - there's a question mark at the end of the subject meaning it's up for discussion. ie, I'm not sure if it is or not.
c - Is there a general way I should be filling out the subject field for "possible" bug reports?

cheers
Mark

There is a good reason: The repo browser is used to browse the 
contents of a repository - and it can only do so if it knows which
repository to browse. There's no world-wide directory service for
subversion epositories it could ask when no URL is given - you can't
even ask a server hosting several repositories for a list of
the repositories it hosts.

Please think twice if you use "Bug" in the subject and at least
trice if you intend to write it in capital letters.

Kind regards

Sven
