The following is a quick overview of what you get.
After upgrading to TortoiseSVN 1. The real killer feature of FSFS, for me, is the read-only access. Why do the overlay icons sometimes change to random graphics?
The original design team settled on some simple goals. To see the whole history in ShowLog you need to unselect the 'Stop on copy' checkbox and click on 'Get All'. Since then, someone has made me aware of WebSVN.
As such, a file checked out of a Subversion repository will have the 'current' date instead of the modification time in the repositoryand a file checked into the repository will have the date of the check-in instead of the modification time of the file being checked in.
I just put svn in the svn:externals property, and now everyone can check out but I can't helpfully check in.
Another grubby chore for my migration script was to note all these renames again, I had to point them out manually and convert them into proper clean Subversion rename representations, so that previously broken halves of files' history became rejoined.
This is the difference between a copy and a reference.
