Feature req: specify both WC path & URL in TortoiseProc /command:repobrowser

Hi all,

I just saw an old email from Stefan that mentioned that when you start
the Repo-browser from a working copy, any bugtraq: properties from that
working copy are used by the Repo-browser.

I have some shortcuts to "TortoiseProc /command:repobrowser
/path:<url>", and I had hoped that setting the "Start in" directory for
the shortcuts to a working copy containing the bugtraq: properties would
make the Repo-browser pick up the bugtraq: properties, but it does not.

I see that I can use "/path:<working copy path>" and it will pick up the
properties, but this is not useful for me. My repository looks a bit
like this:


The bugtraq: properties are set on /project/branches/a,
/project/branches/b and /project/trunk, but I want to start the
Repo-browser in /project, using a working copy from /project/trunk in
order to supply the bugtraq: properties. Of course, this assumes that
the properties are set the same in all of those locations, but I know
that they are.

My feature request is for one of these two options, or perhaps both:

1. starting TortoiseProc with a current working directory of X should be
equivalent to viewing X in Windows Explorer, right-clicking in it and
selecting TortoiseSVN -> Repo-browser, i.e. X should be treated as the
working copy that the Repo-browser was started in

2. TortoiseProc should provide an additional command-line option to
specify the working copy from which to start the Repo-browser.

I prefer option 1 but would be happy with either option or something

Apologies in advance if this has already been requested but I couldn't
find it in a search of the mailing lists.

I am running TortoiseSVN 1.4.5, Build 10425 - 32 Bit , 2007/08/26

Thanks in advance,

PS Thanks for the excellent tool!
