Subject Re: SVN and NTFS - illegal character ':' in filename
Date Wed, 24 Mar 2010 18:08:11 GMT
If you have both Unix and Windows boxes on the same project, it's very
possible for someone on Unix to create a file with an invalid
character or name for Windows. For example, aux.java is an invalid
file name on Windows.

I have a pre-commit trigger that allows you to ban characters or file
names from being added into your Subversion repository.
