Re: auto-upgrade of working copy

I definitely think people do like having this automatically done for
them with the only exception being those people who use multiple clients
on a single working copy. I'm not surprised no one talks about it as a
desirable feature as it is just how it has always worked. As Mark notes,
you'll hear more about it when they now have to take an explicit step. I
think you'll definitely hear about it then just because it is a change
and requires action when people crave automation.

Most users don't like doing something more and most don't use multiple
clients on a single working copy which is really where the automation
bites you. That said, I wouldn't argue that making this change isn't for
the best and people will adjust.

Oh, I didn't mean to imply that I'd expect people to write in
out of the blue, asking for the feature to be kept.

I meant to say that I cannot recall any user ever requesting
that auto-upgrades be kept during a discussion about whether
or not auto-upgrades should be happening or not.

Is there anyone? If so, speak up, now is your chance :)
