RE: Re: Can't find changelist feature

I disagree. It is needed.

It seems to me that changelists are to allow grouping of files, and thus an easier way to select the files you want to commit.

The way I see it working (ideally) would be to tag the files as you work them, putting them into the various changesets (maybe allowing previous/current changesets to be applied from a dropdown).

Then, when committing, a dropdown is available in the commit dialog that allows quickly selecting the files in the changelist. Which, I think is the main point of the changelists.

Having the assignment in the commit dialog seems to defeat the point. It's only client based, so it's more a tool to help the user group files. The commit dialog seems too late.

Yes, for the CL client, changelists can be used as targets for commands.
That's not possible with TSVN (and also not needed).
