'Operation not permitted' -- problem solved

From: Christopher Dunn <Christopher.Dunn_at_Freescale.com>

Problem:
No-one but the repo creator can commit.

bash% svn commit -m "" hello.c

Sending        hello.c
Transmitting file data .svn: Commit failed (details follow):
svn: Can't move '/proj/svn/db/current.3.tmp' to '/proj/svn/db/current': Operation not permitted


Solution:
Turn off the sticky bit.

chmod -R o-t
/proj/svn

This is best when the repository is created, as otherwise a few current.x.tmp files stick around, but it definitely solves the problem.


Apparently this is fixed (or gotten around) in the latest releases of svn/apr, though we have not tested that yet.

Thanks for the quick help.
