Sometimes it comes to relocating or disconnecting local working svn repo copy.
Here, both clients (Eclipse 2x vs. Tortoise) seem to have features, from which the other side could learn.

1

In Tortoise, disconnect and reconnect is simple: relocate

Two operations in one: just do “TortoiseSVN -> Relocate”.
Sometimes I think, that this feature alone is worth having tortoise under windows.

2

In Subversive and Subclipse, you disconnect and relocate

The process has many manual steps, unneeded options and questions.
It works, but not the way I would like to have “relocate”.

3

But Tortoise can’t disconnect. It can only “export”

What if I just want all .svn dirs gone. In Eclipse I choose disconnect. With Tortoise I will need to export copy of the working copy to do so.
Although not a killer problem, removing .svn is faster and will not take twice as much disk space. Both may be a problem with mounted or NAS mounted drives with limited disk space and huge repositories (> 2 gb ).
And yes, such conditions are sometimes present in big enterprises.

So, I guess, I would like both “relocate” and “disconnect/reconnect“ in one tool… ;)
