TortoiseSVN is invaluable to me and I appreciate anything you can do.

However, a feature that I really should have asked for first is the following:

(3) A simple method of invoking an update with the --ignore-externals option.

I am using a lot of externals and each project update takes quite a while.
It is easy enough to add the --ignore-externals option when using svn from the
command line. Maybe there is already a method to do this in TSVN and I
just haven't found it. Perhaps another option on the TortoiseSVN context menu
might not be too unreasonable.

Thanks again,
