RE: Bug in svn on MacOS X 10.4 with ._ files on UFS

Ben,

You should read the following:

http://arstechnica.com/reviews/os/macosx-10.4.ars/7

Suffice it to say that while "resource forks" have been deprecated, a
similar component still exists in the filesystem and is apparently going to
become more and more relevant in the future.

I'm guessing that the discussion has not happened in the last month or so
(since April 29, the release date of OS X 10.4), and proposing that it
happen again.

My suspicion is that APR should be extended to support the xattr system in
some portable manner. I'm not familiar enough with APR (or xattr, for that
matter) to elaborate.

-Jake

Not gonna happen. Resource forks are deprecated, Apple recommends
against using them, and so there's no way Subversion is going to grow
custom code to deal with them. This has been discussed many times
before. :-)
