RE: Re: How to have tortoisesvn Always freeze svn:externals for tags

I am in the same kind of organisation than dnndev.
As him, I definitely wanted to find that same feature in TortoiseSVN.

To manage that, I have created a script that walk the entire module I want to tag and for each svn:external found :
 * check if the svn:external is from the same repository
 * If so, automatically TAG the external module with the same label
 * Update the svn:externals property in the current WC with the new label.

That is definitely the best behaviour in my point of view.

A more avanced feature would be to request user to setup repository he wants to be managed that way (in the SVN tortoise configuration for exemple).

If TortoiseSVN finally implements this feature, there would be the question of other commands (svn merge for exemple), but that is another story.

Happy new year,
