Re: using subversion in custom application

Note up front: you're still using mailer settings that generate
badly-formatted text and additionally HTML. Apart from being frowned upon, it
also isn't helpful to your case. See the mailing list guidelines.

It's "Subversion", capital S, no hyphen.

Subversion identifies content by two things:
1. a path
2. a revision

If you have a file foo/bar.txt and edit it, it will not change its path but
only its revision. IOW, at revision N it will have the content before the
changes and at N+1 it will have the content after the changes. If you browse
the repository (svn list...) you will always be given the paths in the
lastest revision.

I believe you already asked a similar question here some days ago and received
a similar answer. Asking the same question over and over again will not give
you new answers, it will only help to annoy people. I'm actually not 100%
sure what exactly your problem is. Describe what you did, what you expected
and what happened instead.

Subversion doesn't track checkouts/working copies. After all, you could also
make a copy of a working copy locally and get a fully functional second
working copy. And yes, even a second lock attempt from the same user will
fail, as you could have easily tried yourself...
