Subject RE: Problem with file name encoding during merge - URL Encoding (Percent Encoding)
Date Fri, 06 Oct 2017 12:31:56 GMT
Dear Johan,
at my first e-mail I wrote EXACTLY what to do to reproduce error.
In my opinion this is low chance to blame client library.
We tried two different compilation of 'pure svn' on Windows, and as third: TortoiseSVN client.
Moreover we also tried to reproduce this on Linux machine.

I suppose that this may be connected with http transport, or apache/WebDAV or svn server,
because when I create repo on locally and use file:/// transport, then everything is ok.

Yes, this seems unwanted. But where did it go wrong? At this point it's unclear whether this
is a user error, or some tool / UI on top of SVN that did something wrong, or SVN itself.

Can you check with the person who performed that commit, to see exactly what he did? What
svn operation? With what tool (and which version of the tool)?
