Re: What does txn-current-lock do?

Thanks Blair. I will read the structure on fsfs; however, at the
moment, that txn-current-lock is giving us a headache. We are running
an svnserve using svn+ssh, not just file://. The txn-current-lock is
dated back in June where as the txn-current is dated to just a few
days ago. Does this mean the owner of the lock didn't successfully
commit and left something hanging?

Just now, I was trying to create a new folder in the repository, and
it gave me a permission problem because of this lock. Is there a way
to force release this lock? Thanks.
