Re: Dialog titles

Hi Folks,

Just to throw in my 2 cent about path shortening. Are we talking about
URL/path to the repository in all cases? Because some dialogs (e.g. the log
dialog) show the local working copy path in the title. This should be
consistent IMHO and I vote for the repository URL/path and not the local
path.

How important is the repository URL in the title? It would be cool, if the
repository URL (or at least the protocol) could be removed from the title
bar. I think I would not need the repository URL, because the path inside
the repository is what I'm working with and these are usually distinctive
enough between projects. Opinions?

Examples:
Full Title: "
https://tortoisesvn.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/contrib/other/translation-status-
Update - TortoiseSVN"
No protocol: "
tortoisesvn.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/contrib/other/translation-status -
Update - TortoiseSVN"
Just path: "trunk/contrib/other/translation-status - Update - TortoiseSVN"
Shortened path: "trunk/.../translation-status - Update - TortoiseSVN"

Picking the first and last part of a path for shortening as in my example
above may not be sufficient if we think about:
"
https://tortoisesvn.googlecode.com/svn/branches/1.6.x/contrib/other/translation-status
"
"
https://tortoisesvn.googlecode.com/svn/branches/1.7.x/contrib/other/translation-status
"
which would both become
"branches/.../translation-status"

Cheers
