Thanks, I will take a look at into this. Is this also achievable from the GUI with TortoiseSVN?

The next obvious question for you (or svn admins?) is: Instead of having a decadency on Perl & .pl script, wouldn't it make sense to integrate this feature directly into an svn command/argument?

I am making the suggestion to make the product more user friendly and powerful. In previous company, I have used Perforce, and they really make this easy.

Cheers,
Charles
