Re: [issue?] MD5 checksums not verified for content in "text-base" -- may get corrupted data when using 'revert'

i don't really understand your answer..

not only programmers use subversion,
but also ppl from the graphic and office department,
and they tend to do such mistakes.
so whats wrong with checking the MD5 value
(and the date) if its there already?
or what's an MD5 good for if it isn't checked?
and many utilities provide no option for excluding
folders. and as one might expect, even
microsoft visual studio is too dumb to -exclude-
the .svn subfolders when doing a search.
