RE: RE: Re: Visual Studio.Net and Subversion - Will this make it into a release?

I wasn't aware that was possible. Even if it is, I wouldn't do it. Haven't
there been threads before about sharing a working copy between platforms
being a bad idea? When I work on cross-platform code stored in a svn
repository, like a Java app for example, I check out from the repository on
each platform, not copy my wc around.

Personally, I would trade the wc-copying ability for the VS.NET
compatibility. Perhaps the Subversion developers will need to decide, if
they haven't already, which compatibility is more important. Perhaps there's
a better solution. For me, the #ifdef is a 10-second fix that works for the
way I work.
