The svn server has no knowledge of the state of any client that may
have a working copy. Once a working copy is checked out/updated (an
action which is not logged - see the threads on this topic from last
week), the connection is severed. No further communication occurs
until the client initiates the conversation, usually via an update or

If all users store their working copies on a network drive, you could
roll through those locations. Or, if all the client PCs have a
read-only share made available where the working copies are, you could
probably access them over the wire.

Your foreach loop assumes that every client only keeps a working copy
in a location you're expecting - unless you're going to search every
drive on each PC.

But now you've got me curious....why?
