Re: Locked file - Windows - filesystem number instead of path is shown in error message

Dear Mr. Sahlberg,

thank you for your answer.

I have played with the client hook pre-lock script of Tortoise SVN. The
idea is very good.
The first argument is a temporary file. It should contain the paths to
the files which should be locked.
But unfortunately this file is empty.
Therefore I am not able to add the paths to the log message via client
hook scripts.

The svn lock command should know which file(s) in which working copy is
(are) locked.

I don't understand why this command doesn't transfer this information to
the server and doesn't show it in the log or better in the message which
is shown if another user wants to get a lock on this file.

I need much time to find the working copy (plus client computer name)
where a file is locked because I don't know where it is locked.

A software which provides the locking feature should also told the user
where it is locked.
I know this from other software products.

I don't want to do a force unlock.

As workaround I use subversion usernames which contains the hostnames of
the clients.

So I know on which host the lock was done.

But I need also the path of the working copy and I don't want to add
also each working copy to the username

Best regards

Martin Rupp
