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.
