Subject AW: SVN 1.7 - check out single file?
Date Sat, 02 Jul 2011 12:11:06 GMT
The possibility to check out a single file would probably be the base of checking out (or update)
files that match certain criteria e.g. "*doc, *txt, *html"
I opened an other thread about this. Many of my colleagues would appreciate such a functionality.

We'll have to see how Tortoise implements this, as that's what most
folks here are using.

It's an edge case for us, it's only 2 or 3 people who are affected by
the issue of too many items to check out just to update a single file.
