RE: Forced to use svn delete?

I thought that the only issue with MacOS X's DAV support was that it
didn't do https. Is there some other problem that makes it not work?

Curious, since I was planning to do this.

The Mac Finder DAV support issue is documented in the book, Appendix C.

I have a hybrid environment (Mac, Win) and was planning on doing the
same (WebDAV+SVN autoversioning) and ran into the issue. Re-reading the
chapter it highlighted that plug-ins would work but the native Mac
Finder fails on write (error msg: XYZ cannot be written).

My solution: All users (Win/Mac) WebDAV into Apache. Via cron-job on
the server, I would auto-commit to SVN every 5-10 mins or so. The batch
script was partially posted yesterday evening, "Re: Commit hooks
malfunctioning..." If nothing was changed during a COMMIT command, then
no revision occurs :o)

HTH,
