RE: Re: What do you Hate about Subversion?

Well, this has long since degenerated from "What do you Hate
about Subversion?" to beating to death a horse that's existed
for decades, and, in all likelyhood, will continue to
exist for decades. Are any of us likely to solve it now?
Is Subversion likely to change soon? If not,
can we call a truce, or do I need to add a filter to my
client to send all " What do you Hate about Subversion?" directly
to the trash bin?

No offense meant to any of the debaters, as I realize this IS
an important issue, I face it too. But, I've long since resigned myself
to living with it as best I can...
