RE: Re: TortoiseSVN action logging.

"Option to save the log" I meant the typical options associated with apps (not just p4) in the application's preferences.
As an example, P4v has these options in it's general preferences dialog:
As another example, another app has these logging options:
I'm sure that several nice/desirable features could be suggested but the basic notion of a log file is, well, basic... Isn't it? I guess not. If that's the issue, I apologize for assuming too much.
As to not answering questions, um, I just started in this discussion. I think you may be mixing up posters. Regardless the questions you say haven't been answered were actually responded to recently (eg where save file etc).
Again, I think you take an adversial role in questioning the use of the log (which is fine, if there is reasonable doubt, but it's not fine if you're not really listening/putting yourself in another user's situation)...
Once again... my workspace state now, may have nothing to do with my workspace state 1 hour ago, much less 2 or more days ago. So if I want to go back and see activity, that's hardly reconstructable from the current state of the workspace. I don't understand why this concept is so hard to comprehend. You're arguments would seem to bring into the question logging of any application's activity, yet many applications provide this feature, is this so foreign?
For people who are doing a lot of merging, a lot of individual work, managing a lot of workspaces, having to prove that a particular file/folder/workspace was updated to a particular revision at some specific point in the past) having a log is very useful.
As for different repositories etc, I don't see where that even comes up. Viewed as application, it makes sense that there is one log file; again, it seems like the very notion of a log file for an application is starting from scratch (eg "what a weird concept") here... Kind of weird.
I would assume that the logging would illustrate what paths are being used to communicate with the server (otherwise it'd be pretty pointless).
Anyway, I feel that this issue has still not passed the "should it be considered at all" stage based on your arguments. Perhaps that should be established first so that other answers/comments aren't dismissed when they are there (eg the answers already posted that you suggest it was my obligation to supply).

Conflicted files are marked conflicted, even after the progress dialog is closed.

To check what files got modified during an update, show the log for the folder, then select the revisions you updated - then you can see all the files which got modified during the update in the bottom part of the log dialog.

But if you just close the dialog, what prevents you from also just deleting the log files? Ok, closing the dialog will be much easier to do, but still...

Why do you think we're hostile? I simply stated that before you can just go and file an issue that there's still a lot to discuss.

Honestly, I don't use other version control UIs - I have enough to do with TSVN as it is, I don't have the time to install other version control systems and try them out. You could have mentioned p4 in your first post for example.

Ok, now you've complained about my attitude here. Ok, I'm sorry!

Or Craigs question below:
> Another question to throw into the mix, what should happen when two
Until those questions are answered and discussed, there's no use in filing an issue or start implementing this feature. We first have to decide how we can even do it before we start doing it.
