Re: Restriction on deletion of files from Subversion

Hi Andy,

Why do you think preventing them from
deleting files would allow them to check
in the non-SVN generated versions?

How can a weekend-warrior update
a file on Monday back into the subversion
environment without svn remove?

If you think you have the answer to
that riddle, then please go ahead
and answer the second riddle.

What if 2 weekend warriors make changes,
and on Monday we would like both sets
of changes merged into the subversion

Again, I know of no solution that does not
start with "svn remove", but I would love to!
