Re: "open as web folder" - webdav add, import, delete

hmm ... i think i don't understand that. what is the difference
between a "DELETE", and a "DELETE"? is there a "versioned" delete and
a "unversioned" one?

do you have maybe an url explaining that a little? i tried
http://greenbytes.de/tech/webdav/rfc3253.html, but all i see there is
the extensions to dav.

The autoversion branch that Sussman is working on will support that.
It's not exactly an "easy and quick win" because Explorer is going
direct to the repository via WebDAV but doesn't speak DeltaV (the
part
of the protocol that deals with versioning). So Subversion needs to
translate from the plain commands to versioned ones. And since
there's
no working copy to batch changes and commit them together, you might
end
up with more revisions than you really intended and you definitely
will
have no commit messages.

I think this feature will be most useful when hierarchical
repositories
are supported (also a post-1.0 feature, verging on "flying cars" I
think). You can have a local repository with auto versioning so you
have
history of whenever you save. You can push the stuff upstream when
you've finished your change and supply the commit messages.

I don't see any relation. There is an issue for it, but I can't seem
to
find it right now. It's marked post-1.0. Sussman is only working in
it
in non-CollabNet time.
