Not sure if I understand this correctly. For me this sounds more like an automated way of Updating the Working Copies.
But my problem is that the initial File that I imported into the Repository is not changed automatically if something is Committed to the Repository.
Or that I don't know how to do this. Is there maybe a way to create a repository with an existing File so that this will be updated once someone commits something?
