RE: Subversion - Status - Ignore case

This is something that you might be able to do with
filter script. You could filter the file by
converting everything to upper or lower case.
You could probably come up with a more clever and complicated
filter script that finds lines that differ only by case
and replaces the new line with the old line, but is it worth it?

One issue is that you would not be able to
change your mind. For example, the first programmer
to add a file with a variable "sSql" would fix that
as the permanent case because when a second programmer
came by and tried to commit the file with the variable
as "sSQL" it would get ignored because it would not be
recognized as a change.

Yours,
Noah

I'm using VB6 and we have two developers, one who makes the variable
sSql and the other who does sSQL. All the instances of the var switch
back and forth depending on who opened it last. This var is declared
in every function so I'm just at a loss.
