[TSVN] FAQ: 405 Method Not Allowed

From: Wilkins Adrian <adrian.wilkins_at_cfh.nhs.uk>

The FAQ discusses various Apache error messages that occur with TSVN
use. Another possible outcome for a 405 error is when locking a file ;

Our project renames files a lot to convey version information (yuch, but
we're not really a coding project per se) We also have a blanket
"svn:needs-lock" policy. (also yuch).

When you try to lock a file that no longer exists in the HEAD revision,
you get "Lock request failed: 405 Method Not Allowed". This has confused
several of our developers.

Firstly, adding this to the FAQ might help someone out.
Secondly, the client could implement a check when attempting locks,
following a 405, that looks to see if the file still exists, and if not,
prompts the user to update their working copy.
