RE: Feature request: inhibiting checkout for tags and branches

I don't have apxs and can't find a 64 bit version. Seems like I would also need Perl.

Is there a Windows 64 pre-compiled version of mod_dontdothat?

mod_dontdothat ?


BTW, why are you sending your question to "subversion_users_at_googlegroups.com" ?

The proper address of this mailing list is users.at.subversion.apache.org, http://subversion.apache.org/mailing-lists.html
