Ticket #619 (assigned enhancement)
copy and move files between working copies

Description (last modified by alwin) (diff)
One of the features of TortoiseSVN that I miss most with kdesvn is that with TortoiseSVN installed, after dragging files with the right mouse button from one folder under version control to another in Windows Explorer, a pop-up menu is displayed containing options to perform a "svn move" or "svn copy" (the folders do not have to be in the same working copy, it suffices that they belong to working copies of the same repository server).
It would be nice if kdesvn had a similar feature. In KDE, probably the left mouse button should be used instead of the right one - currently, when I drag a file or folder in Konqueror or Dolphin then upon releasing the mouse button a pop-up menu is displayed with options to move, copy or link - kdesvn could add its entries into the menu.
I often have small utility classes that I copy between projects because they are just too small to have projects of their own. But I like keeping revision history for these files, so I prefer "svn copy" over plain file copying.
