   3. SVN rename ('Foo.txt')


   - TortoiseSVN does what I tell it locallyu.
   - Failing that try to rename remotely as if I had browsed the repo and
   renamed it. (Right click, browse repo, select file, rename remotely, enter
   commit message).
   - Failing both steps; the error dialog should unambiguously tell me
   how to fix this problem or provide me a direct link (URL) to the
   documentation in question.

   only case changes.
   - a mildly helpful error dialog appears telling me to look at the

By a factor of three, what you do is not nearly as important as how it makes
