Re: using TortoiseProc.exe to tag

Thank you very much for your response.

I will re-think the network drive repository approach (I am reading the FAQ
currently, thank you for the hint).
But this is not related to my question: Please let me explain my intension.

I would like to use several repositories (which are located on different

If I want to use more than one local working copy with Totalcommander
I would need multiple buttons to create tags (one for each local working
copy because I don't have a variable that contains the root-directory of
the current repository). The current directory is available as a variable
but I don't know how many directorys I have to go up ../../../ to get to
the root of the repository to be able to change to the tags directory.

I know always where the local copy is. But I would like to keep the
installation as simple as possible.
In this case I could also deploy the menubar to my colleages and it does
not matter where the local working copy is located on their computers as
this would be transparent.

I hope I could convince you about this feature request. Could you please
add another command line switch like /relative_url?

Thank you for your patience and support.

Best regards,
