Re: Any surveys of usage of Subversion vs. all the others?

If he's sending you emails like that, then no amount of propaganda will
convince him to accept subversion. He's apparently already made up his
mind.

One question - if somehow you were to set him up so that all of his files
had needs-lock to prevent merging and concurrent editing would that make him
any happier? (not that other folks on the same project would like it...)
