    Thanks guys for this tool/service. Our experience with it has been quite positive so far, and we're thrilled to watch it evolve for better. Having worked with Collaborate for a while, we have a few suggestions:

    1. Skip files from submission: this suggestion has been mentioned before in the forums; basically, it would be handy if we could mark the files that we don't want to send to the repository when submitting changes. If you work with addons, which have lots of files, examples and docs that you want to have locally but not stored remotely, there is no way to handle this use case other than moving the files to a location outside the Assets folder, delete them, or create them in a separate project and export the files you need (or manually copy/paste through the explorer).

    2. Delete files from repository: also mentioned before in the forums; right now we only have the Archive feature online, but it would be handy to have a remove option either, for cases like the above when you already submitted unnecessary files/folders (like examples/docs from addons).

    3. Revert files from the Hierarchy Tab: it would be nice if a "Revert" option appears when you right-click over a file on the Hierarchy tab, and when you click on it, a confirmation boxs appears with "Yes"/"No" options before doing any changes.

    4. Revert file to a specific version: handy when you have more versions of a file (for example, a script) and you want to revert not to the latest submitted version, but to a previous (not archived) one.

    5. Change the modified folder icon: I'm using RainbowFolders addon for a project and this prevents Collaborate from marking the folders with change when those folders are handled by a plugin like Rainbow Folders. So, it would be nice if instead of replacing the whole folder icons, Collaborate just adds and image overlay to the current folder icon. This way, both solutions could coexist.

    6. Submission Summary on Editor: on the collaborate section under the services tab on the Editor, it would be nice to have a brief summary of latest submissions (who submitted it, when, size, etc.) plus the total size of used/remaining space.

    That is for now. Hope you find the suggestions useful.
