Re: access repository via samba

Just as an addition to Erik's message, trying to access a Subversion repository via any network filesystem (whether SMB, NFS or whatever) is specifically warned *against* in the book.

This link has more information: http://svnbook.red-bean.com/svnbook/ch05s02.html

If you already have your repository set up to be served via HTTPS, it will be far less headache-inducing to make sure your server is also configured to serve the repository to the local network and access it that way than to support multiple access methods. :)

Cheers,
b
