Re: TortoiseSV1 - A New Issue Tracker Plugin

Thanks for getting back to me Stefan,

Is the problem with the name is that it is too similar to the TortoiseSVN
name or a semantic meaning of the name and what the plugin does? Is there a
reason why TortoiseMantis (which is currently featured) is acceptable and
TortoiseSV1 not?

The reasoning behind the name choice was that at the time, the term
TortoiseSV1 returned no (google) search results relating to TortoiseSVN.
Where as an alternate name TortoiseSVone returned many results relating to
TortoiseSVN. My intention was to avoid confusion between the two terms.

While it is well within my ability to change the name of this issue tracker
plugin, I am sure you can understand the repercussions of doing so.

Thank you for your time,
