Re: TortoiseSV1 - A New Issue Tracker Plugin

@Andy - To answer your question the short name V1 is in common usage to
refer to VersionOnes Agile Management application. So among the people that
would benefit from this plugin I don't believe there would be any confusion.

@Bob - Currently the work flow allows, the user to select multiple defects
that are assigned to the current user. After the selections are made, the
Defect Id and description is appended to the commit message. I'll be
starting on some of the other features that you've described in the coming
releases. I would definitely like to update the V1 defect/task with the
changeset #.

@Stefan - Thank you for explaining your concern, I was unaware of all the
other "Tortoise" projects in development, and can see your hesitation with
the current name of my project. I like the points that Bob brought up around
defining a naming convention around IssueTracker plugins. Do you have any
ideas around this? Also, it seems like the current Issue Tracker plugins are
compatible with both TortoiseSVN and TortoiseGIT, which would provide more
reason to alter my current naming to something more representative of the
fact that this plugin is Tortoise compatible.
