Better support of 'Web Site' projects

On Adding and Checkout AnkhSVN currently only handles projects in a single tree, just like all other Subversion clients.

The Visual Studio SCC api also allows SCC providers to support different layouts. E.g. a solution with libraries somewhere below 'D:\Projects' and a website on 'C:\inetpub\wwwroot\mysite' or a central server like '\\devserver\sites\my-site'

AnkhSVN should be extended to handle these layouts in both 'Add to Subversion' as Checkout scenarios. And via the scc-enlist support these paths should be per user definable to support different layouts on different systems. (On Checkout this could be a connect to an existing directory of a new checkout on a different location).

    @Apolo sun. Were the original checkouts created with the current AnkhSVN release or with an older AnkhSVN/TortoiseSVN.

    Some early Subversion 1.6 releases sometimes make a folder 'sparse'. That way updating folders doesn't retrieve new files.

    If you have more details that can help us resolve this issue for you please mail our user mailinglist.

    I have used seveal version AnkhSVN with my asp.net web site project (not the asp.net web application ), include the AnkhSvn-2.1.7141.181. But they have the same big issue that when we added and commited new files, whenever created in IDE or copied from OS system file explorer, the new files can't be retrieved by other AnkhSvn clients. We can find the new files in svn repository, but can't get them by AnkhSvn. I used the following tools:
    Windows Server 2008 sp1
    Visual Studio.Net 2008 sp1
    .Net Framework 3.5 sp1 (my project used .Net Framework 2.0 sp2)

    Just out of curiosity, what is meant with "better support ..."?

    We are using web site projects with AnkhSVN and I have not noticed any incompatibilities or problems.

    We are a web agency who want to migrate from SourceSafe to SVN and we need an extrem compatibility with website project :).
