The name of the project can be changed by editing the "Name" field. You must pick a name that is not in use by another project.
SCM Workbench can optionally add the names of TAGs to the log history command output. Enable Tag URL and fill in the path to the tags URL for your repository.
The last element of the URL can be "*" to have Workbench substitute the name from the next element after trunk.
Note: SCM Workbench uses the revision of the TAG to work out where in the history list the TAG should be shown. This works very well if TAGs are created from the HEAD of trunk.
