Re: Why svn marks all touched files as readonly after each operation? How to disable it?

Eric Lee - what I have to do after each commit or update, is unmarking
read-only property from files. I wish to avoid that time-consuming and
unneeded task.

 Thanks Ryan, but no, there are no properties at all. We do not use locks,
and don't want to use. We have all settings at default.
 If you have never experienced that problem, I don't know what to think. I
was sure it is a standard, default option, and I just can't find how to
disable it.
