A QUICK FIX - Problems with case-insensivity for Windows clients

Hi devs,

you know - there is a problem with case-insensivity for Windows svn
clients when the svn server is on unix. In the KDE repository,
for example, there are two files with the same name in the same
directory. The only difference is the "case". Subversion should
at least have an option to ignore all other files which have a
different case (and the same name). That would make it possible
to check out the repository for people who only have a broadband
internet connection with a windows client. And when those people
are at home (with their low speed internet connection) they can
update the missing file with the other case-sensitive file name.

What do you professionals think about that? Sure the file can be
renamed in the KDE repository, but on the other hand it's a
general problem...

I'm looking forward to hearing from you.

Yours sincerely,

Gerold Jens Wucherpfennig
