Re: Bug Report: file Case conflict

Thanks a lot for you response, that explains a lot.

 I just notice that if the Add, Commit or Check for modifications
command is done at the folder level it will auto adjust the case
(recursively) to all the files within a folder.

 I reported this because it's been an administrative nightmare
fixing these issues, I notice that new users not very familiar
with TSVN, use the windows explorer to add & commit files,
all this actions directly on the files and never at the folder level.

 Maybe is because I never had the "necessity" of adding a file
with the wrong case in you example, to fix a file with the wrong
case we can use the Repo-Browser. but at least there should be
an option to auto adjust the case at all times.

Thank you for your time.
Helder
