 HAH. You have perfect timing. See the thread i started [PATCH]
 Stop resurrecting deleted files in ~/.subversion in message
 20010.1043450893@remus.pretzelnet.org.
   
 
 
 Is this an epidemic, or what? If you two can suggest a better place to
 put per-user configuration, I'd be interested to hear about it.

I don't think they want to put per-user configuration elsewhere--I
think that they're pointing out that in the absence of a ~/.subversion
directory, or, in a situation where svn can't even create the
directory, we should handle the situation gracefully--perhaps warning
the user, but continuing on just the same to do what we need to.

Here's an example. I'm on a machine where I don't have a home
directory (don't ask why). Watch what ssh does:

    sanpietro$ ssh somebox.red-bean.com
-- Could not create directory '/home/fitz/.ssh'.
    The authenticity of host sp.red-bean.com (24.148.71.1)' can't be established.
    RSA key fingerprint is 03:8f:74:f6:3b:11:60:7d:71:85:d2:63:73:2d:10:bb.
    Are you sure you want to continue connecting (yes/no)? yes
-- Failed to add the host to the list of known hosts (/home/fitz/.ssh/known_hosts).
    fitz@somebox.red-bean.com's password:

    Welcome to somebox!

    Last login: Fri Jan 24 23:29:59 2003 from :0.0
    somebox$

See how ssh notifies me that it doesn't have a ~/.ssh dir and can't
even create one, but goes ahead and does its thing?

That's what I think they're talking about, and if it is, I agree with
them.
