Re: Multiple users working on the same checkout

Hi Markus,

from my personal experiments with samba, I think I remember that there
exists the possibility to configure a samba share in a way that every
action on the file system will be done using one single account, no matter
who is accessing it. Don't know the exact configuration parameters
necessary, though.
Maybe this might help in your case?
