Re: Any tips for better integration with Explorer for managing deletions and moves?

Hi Kevin,

let me give a clear example.. In my situation, I have a set of Visual Studio
projects that are being managed under VSS for source control. Being the
renegade developer that I am, and my own desire to have better project
versioning flexibility, I have added the whole set of projects to a local
Subversion respository.

I have been using Tortoise for some time and I really do like it. There has
always been one slight behavior that I wish could be improved,... well, two:
- Have Tortoise automatically recognize deletions from within Explorer or
elsewhere and treat them as a "SVN Delete".
- Have Tortoise automatically recognize a file move from within Explorer or
otherwise. Of course, moving outside the versioned folder tree could be
treated as a delete (with warning?)

I just want to be able to periodically perform a commit against my set of
projects and let Tortoise / SVN take care of the rest.. Of course, the real
reason I want this is to create my own 'branches' of code or 'shelved'

I hope this clarifies my situation. I am real tempted to just use Anhk with
VSS, but I have a feeling that there might be mire issues with that.

best regards,
