Feature Request; Commit As ...

I use Tortoise every day all day.

Thank you for this excellent program.

I work on web projects with customers. We
share files, but they do not have versioning.

I will set up a file in svn such as:


and manage/verion it with Tortoise and my day is happy.

My customers will download it, and send it back named such names as:

I save their file, copy it on top of Site_Architecture.xls,
committ, and in the log I have to paste the name of the
file they sent, which means right-clicking their file,
selecting rename, selecting copy, and then pasting that
into the commit log entry.

What do I have a computer? I wonder.

The Feature I would Pay For/Send Beer For/Send Pizza For:

I want to right click their file and have Tortoise offer
a new option in addition to the current options:

SVN Commit as ...

and if I chose it, I would like Tortoise to:
Show me a file selection dialog/file tree
Allow me to select an existing versioned file
Copy the right-clicked file on top of it
Begin the commit process
Fill in the name of the right-clicked file in
the commit log entry box
leave my cursor there so I can finish the commit entry.

The original right-clicked file need not be versioned,
but a checkbox on the file dialog to "Commit Source File"
with the same log entry might be nice.

Please consider adding the feature - it would save me
HOURS of extremely stupid work every week!


Please select your preference:
All of the above
