Subject Re: Can't get exclusive lock on NAS repo lock files after upgrading to Mac OS X High Sierra
Date Sat, 20 Jan 2018 21:52:12 GMT
I must have overlooked something in my previous tests.  I got it
working using an nfs mount:

> mount
... on /Volumes/SVNRepos (nfs, asynchronous,
nodev, nosuid, mounted by me)

The failing mount protocols were SMB/CIFS and AFP.  I didn't try FTP.
