Re: Renaming files on win32

        Ufortunately Subversion is only one of a dozen open-source
tools I use. I've gotten bogged down over the past month doing exactly
what you have suggested, contributing patches, and now I would like to
finally concentrate on what I am trying to do in the first place: build
my product. There is only so much one person can do :(

        At the very least, why not open an enhancement request against
Subversion? Is there really any dispute as to the correct behavior of
Subversion "rename" under win32?
