FB and Subversion Integration - multiple repositories

We recently upgraded to Fogbugz on Demand and finally got around to integrating Fogbugz with our Subversion repositories.  We've run across a problem with it though and I can't figure out a way around it.

Due to certain customer requirements we must keep our projects on separate repositories.  But Fogbugz only allows us to globally configure the source code integration.  So even though project Apple only refers to the Apple repository, and project Orange only uses the Orange repository, both the Apple and Orange project both have to point to the Apple repository.  This obviously doesn't make sense since the files changed to fix Orange bugs don't exist in the Apple repo.

Ideally, the site-wide source control integration setting could be overridden by a project specific setting, but I realize that isn't a small change so we might not see that as an improvement any time soon.  Has anyone else run into this issue and if so how did you get by it?  Is there any other solution that I'm overlooking?

If you were using the licensed version of FogBugz, I would point you at http://www.fogcreek.com/FogBugz/kb/howto/MultipleRepositories-Mult.html which describes how to use a script to permit multiple repositories to be accessed from FogBugz.

Unfortunately, we don't currently support that script in FogBugz On Demand.  I'll open a case for us to think of a better way of handling multiple repositories from within the FogBugz interface.

The only hack workaround I can think of is for you to download the repo.asp script from the KnowledgeBase article and host it on a public-facing server that you own, and then point the FogBugz source control URLs at your repo.asp script.  I think that should work if you make the other changes from that article.

It won't be out until we ship the full version of PHP (there will be a small windows beta period then).  We're in beta of PHP right now.

Awesome!

I'm looking to purchase FogBUGZ on demand by the end of January and this is pretty key feature for me. Are you expecting to be available by then?

We don't discuss release dates until we're ready to release, but you'll certainly hear when we release FogBugz 6 for Unix.  If you're currently on a trial, we can extend it for you until that is available.

Yes, I'm currently on trial. Who should I talk to about getting an extension if/when it becomes necessary.
