Re: TSVN and Samba

We had it as a windows share but have just moved to a linux server.

We have always used a central working repo on the dev server, changing this
could be quite a cultural shock for some of the developers here.

Why the big issue with TSVN and Samba?

Can I get around this by having just one useraccount on my samba share?
