Description Bojan Rajkovic [MSFT] 2012-04-30 11:46:43 UTC
When using the "Review Changes" feature of the version control interface, if an existing status document is available, it should be reused and refreshed instead of a new one being opened.

If you commit frequently from inside MD and use a keyboard shortcut for the Review Changes view, you can end up opening dozens of these windows over the span of a hack session.

On the other hand, it is useful to be able to see changes from different directories in different views.

Agreed—I should have clarified that before: it would reuse existing windows /on the same scope/. 

I generally review changes on the solution scope by hitting my keyboard shortcut, which gives me (over time) many windows named 'src+'. My proposal is to reuse only these, and reuse Review Changes windows on smaller scopes for the appropriate scope.
