Subject FAQ about using NFS
Date Fri, 09 Oct 2015 15:16:30 GMT
This FAQ seems rather out of date / lacking in correctness:

Since 1.7, the SQLite DB in the WC needs 'file locking' to work
properly, which (as I understand it) sometimes needs to be enabled in
the NFS server config, and on some NFS implementations (and other
networked file systems?) doesn't work properly. Is that roughly

So the simple message "Working copies can be stored on NFS" needs to
be amended to say something about the need for locking to work?

What about the "server" parts of the answer? (First, we should move
the FSFS part to come first, as that's more widely used.) But does
FSFS with rep-cache just "work fine on modern NFS" as stated? If so,
is the same true for the WC?

Anyone want to take a shot at revising this FAQ answer?
