Re: Case-sensitivity with SVNParentPath?

Yes the problem is due the case insensitivity on Windows file system
and case sensitivity on Subversion Authz system.

There are no good solution for this. You can turn on the case
sensitivity for file system on Windows, but it probably will cause
compability problems on some programs.

Other way to solve this is change Subversion Authz code to be case
insensitive on Windows in the repository specification, but I donĀ“t
know how dificult this could be.
