Re: Upgraded Tortoise to 1.50 but still won't ask for credentials on commit after it fails with saved authentication

How do I make the user with read access not be known at all for write
access? If it has read access, would that not make it known?

I'm just trying to make sure I have to enter a name/password to write to
the repo, but allow saving authentication for reading, so I don't have
to enter name/password for every diff.
