RE: SVN keyword replacement
Appreciate the feedback.. I understand the “tags vs branches vs folders” issue… I was just hoping.
Question, is it possible, to add a “regex” style custom keyword? I would be willing to volunteer to implement it.
So maybe an automated system could figure this out, using other custom file attributes?

Unfortunately %P still includes branch directories….
Yes, it is repository relative. That is the best you are going to get out of Subversion.
Subversion does not really have branches or tags. It has paths (folders and files). Branches and tags are just a convention of how you use those paths. Even defining a syntax to lop off some part of the %P would be pretty difficult when you consider you might have "root" paths of all different depths:
Short of some major change in SVN to let you mark the root of your tree there probably will not ever be a way to do any better than what %P gives you.
