Re: Patch files for folder properties

Define what you mean by applying folder property modifications in a patch
"manually" please.

Are there any plans for TortoiseSVN to support patch files a lot better? I
personally think patch files are TortoiseSVN's greatest weakness right now.
Forgive any invalid statements, I have trouble determining which
responsibilities lie with SVN or TSVN.

It would be nice for tortoiseSVN (or SVN, whichever is responsible) to
support the following:

   - Create a better interface (preferably a completely different
   interface than TortoiseMerge) for applying patches. This interface would
   display a list of patch changes (folder properties, adds, renames, deletes,
   moves, copies, modifications, etc (everything)) and allow you to:
      - Apply changes individually (as it does now)
      - Open each different modification change in the patch in
      TortoiseMerge or optionally a third party merge application that the user
      - Provide multiple (potentially noncontiguous) selections, which
      provides the user the ability to apply multiple patch modifications
      - Allow the entire patch to be applied in one easy operation.
   - As stated in the sub-bulleted list above, provide support for more
   modification types in the patch file (such as moves, renames, copies, etc).

I'm sure a lot of this has already been suggested, but I just figured I'd
give you an example of how I envision the patch system working. The way the
patch system behaves now is absolutely useless for my purposes, as a lot of
my changes that I would like to submit to owners of various repositories
contains much more than simple file modifications.
