Re: Space in filename causes path not found on commit

Hi,
Using guidelines posted at
http://svn.haxx.se/users/archive-2010-06/0291.shtml I'm trying to get
confirmed using lists users and dev_at_subversion.apache.org if I should report
this as a bug or not.

Probably I'm doing something wrong because I fail to get a response on both
lists. Can anyone please help?
Thanks and Regards,
Onno
