RE: [TSVN] TortoiseSVN-1.1.5 for ASP.NET

That's certainly fair. :)

I have actually had good results using both the tweaked version of
TortoiseSVN and a set of tweaked Windows console binaries compiled by
Jonathan Malek and available at his web site. He hasn't built new Windows
binaries for version 1.4 yet. I was going to, but he said he would probably
get to it by next week. For my own use, I just renamed his modified binaries
to the original names and put the originals in a backup directory.

Some folks might find this link useful for working with both _svn and .svn
forms of a working copy pretty painlessly

I have seen some comments in the archives about how rough it would be to
support the _svn format rather than .svn for various reasons. I may have
missed something, but it just didn't seem that rough to me. When I found
Jonathan's blog, I slapped a quick and dirty bit of javascript together (for
Windows Scripting Host) that just iterates through a svn working copy and
changes it between formats. In my informal testing it works just fine. You
don't have to get a new working copy or anything unpleasant like that. Since
the working copy it is just a local representation this doesn't affect the
repository on the server, or other developers. Although using a regular
Visual Studio web project would certainly affect other developers since they
would have to use the tweaked SVN or TortoiseSVN binaries.

Somebody else came along and polished the script up to take command line
args and more, from the looks of it. I haven't had a chance to look closely
at the mods, but I'm sure the tweaked script is a lot more user-friendly
than the original.

This is a fair clarification of my statement. When I said "web server
structure", I was thinking "virtual directory setup". Even with this
clarification though, you still have the issues of .svn directories in Web
Projects. I haven't heard or seen any other way to get rid of that issue.
Since using class projects in Visual Studio solves both the problems of .svn
directories and not being able to open the project until the virtual
directories are created, I encourage everyone who shares ASP.Net projects
via Subversion to try this solution.

Of course you want the same directory structure from the project root on
down on each development machine. Actually, I shouldn't say "Of course"
since someone, somewhere has probably done a project that differs, but for
me the statement is true.
