I have various "solution items" (items that appear under a solution folder, in the solution, rather than directly in projects) - the context menu of these items have ALL the "Version Control" functions disabled. I have to go to the terminal to commit/undo/update etc.

You can use the Review Changes command at solution level to manage those files.
Comment 2 Marius Ungureanu 2013-07-22 11:44:28 UTC
Also, actions can be performed on the "Solution Items" folder.
Comment 3 Marius Ungureanu 2013-07-22 11:48:39 UTC
And apparently, doing that will delete the item's whole parent folder. Which means it will do a full delete if it's in the root of the repository. This seems to be important, and we need to stop this from happening.

Lluis, we need to talk about this issue.
