RE: Disable tortoiseSVN from Automatic upgrading to 1.5 client

Huh? Where is the creative thinking here? It could be a feature that
defaults to 1.5 and has to be configured for 1.4.
Why does it have to be so black and white?

IMHO, this is not how to build a passionate and committed community of
end users.

No, they cannot. Otherwise you would have thousands of people confused
as to why their 1.5 clients don't work properly with 1.5 features
because their WC hasn't been upgraded to support those features.
