I think there has been a misunderstanding here.

The original poster was (I think) requesting that when you select several
repositories, right-click and select 'commit', the commit operation is
performed on all selected repositories, rather than just the one that had
the focus when you clicked. There is no requirement that they happen
consecutively, concurrently, atomically or anything else, just that the
commit be run on all folders. I suspect (for this to be at all useful) that
a single dialog box would be presented, so you enter a single log message
that is used to update each of the repositories separately, however I'm not
sure if this was part of the OP's requirements.
