Re: Feature Request: Commit Scratch pad

Possible compromise: An option to load the log message from a file.

Otherwise, do you use an IDE? (Integrated Development Environment)

We use an IDE, here, and some of my colleagues have configured their
"check in" command to:
C:\PROGRA~1\TortoiseSVN\bin\TortoiseProc.exe /command:commit
/path:"%b%e" /logmsgfile:"%x\Status.txt" /notempfile

In our case, the %x expands to the IDE's project folder, which we
assign to be the WC's root folder. (and have the svn:ignore property
set to ignore Stsatus.txt, as well as the IDE's settings files)
