RE: TortoiseSVN with DoD CAC (Smart Card) configuration help

Hi Stefan,
Cool. I'll grab the next nightly build.

See the attached from some screen shots of the "forbidden" message when trying to WRITE to a READ-ONLY directory. It did NOT clear the auth cache in the registry -- did NOT request a new cert choice. It's almost identical with our current version (1.7.11) doing the same thing... (that screen shot is also in the PDF)

Do you know yet which stable branch this change will appear in? We'd like to keep an eye for it.
We'll use the nightly build for now.

I'm on it. Should be ready soon.

Yes. First thanks for testing!
Now, in your test report you have this:
6) Checkout app2 (I have READ-ONLY permission)
- no cert requests
- Edited a file. Tried to commit...
   - no cert requests
   - Failed (this is correct)
     Error: Commit failed
     POST of '...': 403 Forbidden

7) Clear cached cert selection from registry

When the commit failed with "forbidden", did that clear the auth cache in the registry? If not, what was the exact error message?
I've changed TSVN to clear the cached cert index in case of authentication errors. But maybe the "403 Forbidden" doesn't get translated by the svn library into an auth error code.

Anyway: I've committed the e_capi patch now, so all nightly builds will use it from now on. Note however that this change won't get backported to the stable branch since it's a major change and not a bugfix.
