Hi everyone,

First thing: sorry for the other post - Out&**% got away from me.

Second: sorry for the top post - Out&*^k won't let me post normally on
this mail - weird, it wants to extend the quote...

Anyway: try this:

svnadmin lslocks <path_to_repo> |grep -B2 Owner |grep Path |sed "s/Path:
\///" |xargs svnadmin rmlocks <path_to_repo>

I suspect this grep for the owner can be left out as well, but I wrote
this some time ago and there were only the locks of a certain user to be
deleted. (In the original, there was another grep -B2 <username> to only
unlock the stuff that user had locked...

Of course, this is supposed to be done on the server.

Cheers, Ulli

Thanks, Ulli. That should speed things up the next time, provided I can
get that set of Unix tools installed on a Windows server (I did find
them all on SourceForge at least). It's unfortunate we have to run it
on the server at all, but I'm sure we can manage that for as rarely as
we'd need to do this.


BTW, in Outlook, the trick I use is to hit Ctrl-Shift-C at the top, and
go to where I want to type and hit Ctrl-Shift-V. Applying the style
that way wipes out the extension of quote lines.
