RE: Re: Re: Mixed case file names

I think part of the 'problem' is the underlying filesystems. I ran into
this when moving a Perforce server from Linux to Windows one time (not
my choice.) It wasn't case-sensitivity issues, but spaces in a filename,
that made it choke. I believe that if the Subversion server is on a
filesystem that does not acknowledge/differentiate case (Win), then it
won't be possible to submit these types of file pairs.

But I could be completely wrong. ;)

The gist is that if you have clients and the server all running the same
OS, you won't run into this issue with any tool. The least common
denominator to alleviate it is to use a Windows server in a mixed
environment.

I don't believe this will have any effect on the problem. The
Subversion repository itself treats differently cased file names as
different. It doesn't matter on which system it's hosted.
