RE: Renaming files on win32[Scanned]

Point taken, but this is something of a vicious circle. The docs, for example, seem to give all examples in unix-speak (unless they've changed in the last few months). And I so often read replies along the lines of "problems with win32 server? switch to a real OS!" which does nothing to encourage Windows users.
Personally I accept (or assume?) that core SVN dev's are financially supported by an organisation with a heavy unix-bias (nothing wrong with that, but I guess win32 is of secondary importance to the people that count here. Symbolic links v case-insensitivity anyone?)
Anyways, on a positive note, after 2 months of use fsfs is performing flawlessly (win32 client and server)!
Thanks guys,

Umm; not on the development team, actually, but the percentage of unix
users also contributing to the project is a *lot* higher than the
percentage of Win32 users. If all those users started to help out when
we (the dev team) ask for help with reproduction of problems (instead
of never answering to our requests after the initial report) or even
started contributing, we'd be able to handle a *lot* more of the
windows specific problems.
