Hi Ralf,

perhaps you can "fake" this by checking out an empty folder from a
random (completely unrelated, if you like) repository of your choice and
adding externals to it which refer to those working copies (you don't
even have to commit your changes to the SVN properties of your fake folder).

Another approach is to simply have a script file in that folder that you
run. Or add a call to that script to your folder submenu. (See attached
files for an untested, stripped down version of a working solution.) You
still need to read up on how to script TortoiseSVN then (see

With best regards
