it's my first post, so let me introduce myself. My name is Patrick and I
have already successfully installed and configured subversion on debian
and win2003 servers.
In a recent project I had to manage a subversion 1.3.2 installation on a
SuSe (Plesk powered) box using the Apache access method via normal and
encrypted connection. The project needed a repository for DAV access
only, so I added the Autoversioning feature to the apache configuration.
Everything works fine, except some problems with an user running MacOS
10.3.9. He can only mount the webdav folder as read-only. Testing the
access from another MacOS client (10.4.9) everything works like a charme
and I was able to read and write.
The user reported, that he (Office on MacOS) and another user (winXP, MS
Office) tried to access the same file in this time period, so that was
the point where I thougt, it might be an issue of files getting locked
when being edited by another user, but I havn't found any detailed
information, so I think I should ask the mailinglist:
Is the read-only experience of the user the normal locking behaviour of
subverion (+ apache + autoversioning) for every file or is it a problem
of the client (MS Office, built-in os client,) I must investigate
further? I was able to test it myself by using NeoOffice on MacOS 10.4.9
and MS Office on WinXP. There the locking works in both ways. Opening a
simple text file in MacOs, I was able to overwrite it from the WinXP
box. So I guess there is no general locking of files available?
I wonder how the different built-in WebDAV clients (mainly MacOS and
WinXP) support the locking mechanismen when accessing the repository? Is
there any good documentation where I could get the information?
Thanks a lot in advance
