Re: .svn/format files gone

Hi Fritz,

This is a design bug in svntask, because it relies on a property of the
.svn admin folder. The svn developers clearly state that access to this
folder has to be handled by the svn libraries. An app should never rely
on something to be present in the .svn folder, because the format may
change.
