RE: Re: Re: Can't find changelist feature

I believe that the svn client only supports committing one changelist at
a time. Committing multiple changelists seems wrong, as wouldn't the
revision and comment normally only apply to one change at a time?

Besides... you could always manually check boxes after you've chosen you
changelist.

I agree with you with the exception of this one point. A dropdown
implies that you can only select one changelist to commit. I have
plenty of reasons to commit multiple changesets at once, and a "select
one" dropdown would preclude that.

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