Re: .Net Web Application Question

 From what I've seen, there can be a problem with VS.NET and its web
project cache. Something with folders starting with a period. There
might be a problem with the FrontPage extensions - I'm not sure. It's
something very "Microsoft-ish" between VS.NET and IIS but I'm not really
clear what the problem is.

I compiled a _svn version for my own use for a long time. I've stopped,
mostly because compiling Subversion on Windows is a PITA. The folder
name is the administrative folder in the *working copy*, so it doesn't
affect other users. One user could use the _svn version and everyone
else use the normal .svn version - everything would be fine.

Since TortoiseSVN is the only product offering both versions, you're
really at their mercy unless you decide to compile Subversion yourself.
if you feel that compiling the SWIG bindings for Java is *fun*, by all
means just compile your own version.

I use the _svn version of TortoiseSVN for web projects and eSvn for all
