I believe the configtool accepts an ECOS_REPOSITORY environment
variable with multiple entries, but the dialog(s) relating to this
setting still assume a single entry. So it works as long as you have
set your environment correctly and don't want to switch repositories
The eCos Configuration Tool does not currently support multiple
repositories in any shape or form. I took a look at this a while back
and concluded that it would require significant effort to add such
support elegantly since the GUI tool uses the specified eCos location to
find documentation as well as the source code repository.
