Re: Problem : svn: working copy locked:

Do working copies work over NFS? Other than that edge-case, wouldn't it be
at least possible to test that the process that created the lock is still
running, and if not, warn the user and, if running the command line client
and there is no --non-interactive, prompt the user to clear the lock?

Oh well, no matter what it would hardly save any more time and would only
be slightly more convenient (after all, that's what the up-arrow is for on
my shell). I preemptively agree that this would be too complicated and
have too much risk to be worth it.
