TSVN fetches the bugtraq properties from the working copy,
not the repository. So although it is not officially recommended,
you can work with a "common root" checked out "above" your working


Have a folder CommonRoot in your repository and apply the bugtraq-properties
to it.

Check it out to - say - c:\CommonRoot.

In C:\CommonRoot you can create subdirectories to check out your
projects to: C:\CommonRoot\Project1, C:\CommonRoot\Project2.

Project1 and Project2 are called "nested working copies" in this case.
As Stefan said a few mails ago, it is not recommended to layout your
projects like this, but TSVN handles this very well and I have made
good experiences with that.

(I did it this way because I had to deal with a "legacy" project layout
and noticed later, that it's just fine for common property-bound policies
and the bugtraq-features).

Kind regards
