RE: 'Nested' working copies

> XA? What's that? Clarifification please? Relevance?

It's basically a protocol for muliple otherwise independent transaction capable sources to coordinate transactions betweeen them. Thus, you can get a transaction to span them - either it commits in all of them or in none of them.

So the relevance is, if svn repos implemented XA, you could use nested wc's from multiple unique repos and get atomic commits. Without it, while doing commits for each repo, the configuration as a whole is inconsistent until the final commit is complete.

But, I'm no expert, and I can surely appreciate the scope of the problem...



For some reason your mails comes across to me with a subject of '***SPAM*** Re: 'Nested' working copies'. This is our spam trapper (Spam Assassin) that reacts to something - it's rule and score based and updated from the 'net, I think, and I don't know why it picks on you...may be your mail domain or something that have somehow got listed as a common spam source. Just so you know - some Spam Assassin installations may just throw 'spam' away and leave you wondering why your mail doesn't get through...
