RE: Re: Feature Request: Search for changed work copies

The OP's request was for a context menu item on a directory context menu.
So, you'd have to search only the hierarchy below that directory not the
entire harddrive. What do you mean by 'real time'? The request was NOT
for a continuous search ala overlay cache, but a manually requested
operation that resembles a windows search on a directory. There is nothing
wrong with such an operation going away using the full power of the machine
for a minute (or whatever) and then come back with the report.

I personally quite like the feature and it fit's well with how we use TSVN

Error-free? Are you sure?
Think about what you ask TSVN to do here:
* scan all your working copies in real time
* assemble the status of every item in those working copies
* show you the status of every top folder which isn't part of a working
copy itself (working copy root)

Seems simple enough, ok.
But now, let's go deeper:
* scan all your working copies in real time
this is the requirement that's not really doable so you'd like it. Think
about it: how should TSVN know where your working copies are? No, you
can't just assume that every working copy was checked out by TSVN. So
TSVN would have to search your *whole harddrive*.
