Something I've had problems with before...

On a windows box, you have to be careful when
only changing the case of a filename, since
windows doesn't differentiate but svn does.

e.g. Renaming BITE.ME to bite.me can cause grief.

I believe the safest way is to rename to another
name entirely, commit, then rename back with
desired case changes and then commit again.

TortoiseSVN does The Right Thing and reports an
error if you just change the case of a file and
nothing else.


is it beer'o'clock yet?
