AW: [TSVN] Wish: Case-insensitivity within files

Hi Tatham Oddie and all others,

I still don't understand: If I configure svn to use a special
diff tool is it only for visualising the differences (and merge
them if needed or whatever is necessary)? Or is it also used
when e.g. svn status is performed (without a GUI, only to check
whether something has changed)? I think this is not the case.

I see that the problem still remains even when I use another diff
tool. The tsvn state symbol gets changed when I alter the case
of some letters in my source file. I don't know what is going on
there. Maybe there is callback function so when a file get saved
within a svn folder so the state icon gets also changed. The only
thing I know is that it has nothing to do with the last changed date
of a file since when I revert my modifications manually, so there
is no difference to the original file (held in the .svn wc folder),
the state gets changed back to green icon, saying nothing has changed.

What I would like is that the state of the file is only changed if
changes are in the source which are not just case changes.

Maybe I'm confused. So if there is another daily work process that
easily manage this kind of problem, then let me know. Maybe I think
towards a wrong direction.

Till now, from the point of the abilities of svn, I think subversion
is not suitable for VB6 projects. The existing problem as I have
described is annoying. I know it is a problem of VB6 not of svn. But
unfortunately we still use VB6 (as many other of course) and I would
like to use it very much!

Are there are any more suggestions?
