Re: Working copy on a network share

Looks good although I'm having problems when using Berkeley DB backend on a
samba share. It tells me that it cannot move the entries file from .svn/tmp
to .svn. This is because .svn/entries does not have the write permission
set. The message I get is:

svn: Can't move '.svn/tmp/entries' to '.svn/entries': Permission denied

I fixed (hacked?) this by adding a call to svn_io_set_file_read_write in both
svn_io_remove_file and svn_io_file_rename. This probably isn't the most
correct way of fixing it but it works for me.

I might look into converting bdb to fsfs as a more permanent solution.

Cheers
