"Rename" repository in TortoiseHg Workbench

Issue #367 resolved
Anonymous created an issue

In a new TortoiseHg Workbench it seems that the names of repositories are names of directories where the repositories are located. It would be great if users could “//rename//” the repositories, as it is possible to do with groups. (Not to rename the physical directory, but rather a virtual label in the Workbench.)

It is useful in case you have several projects, each with a single repository, that are located in directories which in addition to repository may contain other files: {{{ projects/ project1/ repo/.hg build/ project2/ repo/.hg tmp/ project3/ repo/.hg .../ ... }}} In this case you see in Workbench: {{{repo}}}, {{{repo}}}, {{{repo}}}, …

    Great! Thx.

    What about to provide "rename" for newbies in the context menu, which would set or change the the web.name?

    I'd like to see the Rename context menu too - it is non-intuitive that the web name affects this. In my case I had a repository in the root of a mapped network drive, so it had no name in the registry by default.

    I also think it is kind of undocumented feature. Well, at least it is difficult to find. I found out because i was searching for a bug before opening one myself.

    It is great that i don't have to wait for an update though :) Thank you
