Re: Webdav only works with SVNParentPath, not SVNPath

Hi,

Thanks for the feedback, but I think you've misunderstood my problem. Yes, I know how Path vs ParentPath works.
Subversion works fine and is accessable with either SVNPath or SVNParentPath. This tests out fine when browsing to
the proper location. No, the problem is just with webdav & autoversioning!

My repository is indeed c:\work\svn:
        So, if I use "SVNPath c:/Work/svn", I can access the repository just fine at https://berwyn/svn.
        Likewise, if I use "SVNParentPath c:\Work" then I can access the repository fine at https://berwyn/svn/svn.
This is as expected. Problem is when I try to access it with webdav. Then why doesn't it work with SVNPath?

See original description of problem below.

Thanks,
Berwyn
