Conflicts which exist between the working copy and the repo version are currently not indicated to the user on any screen. Neither the connections list or the connection page contains any indication that there are conflicts. Only when a commit is attempted on a file with conflicts is any indication given that there's a conflict, and even then, that indication appears in a small box that disappears.
Working copies with conflicts should be differentiated somehow. I propose that the connection list be color-coded such that working copies with changes are flagged with yellow and working copies with conflicts are flagged in red. Also, on the connection page, there should appear the word "Conflict" someplace conspicuous so that it's clear that the working copy is probably out-of-sync.
PS: I just lost an hour of work because of this problem. Not good.
