Subject RE: [WWW] migration least I think so

Hi.  I don't think --force skips errors, I think it does other things.

The problem I noticed is that that, for example, in the documentation/HOW_TO/spreadsheet folder,
there are *different* files whose names are only different in the use of upper-/lower-case.
 For example, sty2.GIF and sty2.gif.  These are actually different and checkout and update
on a Windows/MacOSX, and other case-insensitive file systems will fail when the duplicate
is reached.  This also leaves the folder in a funny state in the Working Copy.  Clean-up can't
fix it either.

I need to install a Windows command-line build of co to see if --force is any help at all.
Tortoise SVN doesn't have a way of exercising that case, or of skipping the failure.

 - Dennis

yeah, I heard this from Dennis as well. Uh...I don't really know where all
these are and it might not be easy to track them down. I was hoping you
(and others) could still do a checkout (maybe use --force) to get what you

I'm on case sensitive linux and no problems.

I won't have time to deal with this for at least a week.

hmmmm...OK. I wish I knew more about why this is needed. Oh well.

Oh dear...I'll check this out later. I might be able to do this manually in
It seemed were going pretty well from the svn end with one exception.
