Re: [PATCH] Release candidate patch for adding external locking filecode to svn_repos_open

Ok. I'm a little confused here.

1. I can run an access database on a novell share, and have multiple people
access it and write to it..
2. I can run an access database on a windows share and have multiple people
access it and write to it.
3. How can I do the same w/ BDB w/o a server?
4. Does BDB mmap files?
5. Will this problem go away if we used something like SQLite instead of BDB?

I'm sorry if I'm asking questions that should be obvious. I'm not that
familiar with the internal architecture of BDB.

Anyway. I'm going to bed. I hope wiser heads than I can come up w/ a solution
for local repositories across SMB.
