Re: commited delete with uppercase/lowercase filename, what to do?

Your workspace is on a Windows system. What is your server? Windows servers
are case insensitive.

If your backend is Linux, it is extremely likely that your repository always
contained both "filename.ext" and "fileName.ext", but you never saw the
latter because the former always mapped over it. Not you deleted
"filename.ext", you're finally seeing "fileName.ext".
