Re: SVN 1.5.3 and possible data loss

Hi John,

I cannot say anything about the svn version you are using, but I encountered
such a data loss once with CVS and identified the developer in my case as the
culprit. The problem was, that the corresponding person was moving the file
around on his computer. So he did updates from the repository, and
then overwrote
the file with "his" version, and such killing all edits by others not
contained in "his"
version and then committed it. The same behavior would happen, if you
have unsaved
modifications of a file while updating, and then saving the file... So
you should make
sure that this is not an user issue.
