Is it possible to open a directory that contains a Rails app in a sub directory?

I'm using git-svn to work with a rails app from an SVN repo.  The SVN repo has it's standard setup containing trunk, tags and branches directories.  So, the rails app is actually stored at projectdir/trunk/railsapp.  I can't figure out how to open the project at projectdir and still use the Rails view.  It also doesn't let you navigate from controller method to view file etc.  I could open the rails app at the railsapp dir, but then Rubymine is unaware of the git repo it belongs to so I can't see changes and diffs etc.

Is it possible to open a project directory and set a subdirectory as the rails app?

Hello John,

You should actually do the opposite: open the subdirectory containing the
Rails app and configure the version control directory mappings using Settings
| Version Control. There is no requirement that Open Directory can be used
on the root of a VCS repository.
