Description Mikayla Hutchinson [MSFT] 2013-07-16 18:14:26 UTC
The checkout dialog has a "Target directory" which defaults to $HOME/Projects. However, using this results in a "directory exists" error. It should automatically add a subdirectory from the last component of the Path section of the URL.

Will mark as fixed since PR with fix is up. ;D
