Subversion users. I am now thinking about the issue of checking out to a
network drive. It looks like over the years this has generated a number of
issues for the community. So I would be very interest to hear if this has
caused anyone any problems? -

The big issue is storing a repository on a network drive and having
everyone access it via the file:// protocol. That is a bad idea .

On many Unix systems, your home directory is a network drive, and on
Windows systems, the My Directory is a share. So, doing a checking out on a
network is not that rare and may be the only way you can do a check out.
