Re: Using Various Versions of Tortoise within a Team

Thanks but it's still not clear to me what you're saying. Speak in terms for
a beginner.

Also where's this user's forum?

Why would anyone other than one's self be using a single working copy? If I
check out code, I'm usually the only one using that local copy.

I'm still lost here. Maybe you can paint a real-life story / use-case for
this?
