Re: Permission problems following upgrade to 1.4

Well, I'm in the same position as Schmidt dude in the post below... and
all because this software that we develop really isn't that easy to
setup, so there is only one working copy, one beta test copy and then
exported production release. And 1.4 made my life as SVN admin a hell on
earth.. once again :)
(I still remember 0.3x days...) Is there anyway around this?

perhaps it's time to talk to the person who made that silly decision
and point out that locking and shared working copies are at cross
purposes?
