Hi Alessio,

thanks for your reply on issue 2610. I'm going to close it as duplicate, but I'd
like to answer your questions too (here on the users list).

I'll try to clarify my original answers to your request:

Quoting amassaro@tigris.org:

1. This is just a tooling problem. The users and dev mailing list are the
perfect place for discussions. Note that some Subversion developers also read
the users mailing list. The issue tracker is not so good for discussions, so we
like to keep only the outcome of the discussions there with a reference to the
mail threads. This will help the people looking at the issue to easily find
what discussions have already been done, and why certain conclusions were

2. This was not the message I wanted to send. For me the issue tracker is a tool
which keeps track of the *problems* people have with Subversion. Your suggested
solution is more than welcome, but by focusing on the solution instead of the
problem it's more difficult for people to suggest maybe better solutions (if
they exist).
Practically I mean that the summary of this issue should have been something
like 'text-base gets corrupted easily by recursive find and replace' with your
suggested solution in the comments.

> 3) Yes, #525 covers this. I'll add my comments there.

3. Thanks.
