Hi Everyone,

Sorry for the re-send - I didn't hear back from anyone, and this is driving my fellow staff members that use windows nuts.

The subject pretty much says it all; I've set up our Cfengine setup to
be under Subversion control, and it was working wonderfully... until
the Windows users tried using RapidSVN, TortoiseSVN, etc - having a
colon in a filename is illegal in Windows, as cfengine modules do (module:blahblah).

Has anyone else encountered this, and did you find a workaround?  I'm
currently getting them to use VNC to hop to a Linux machine, or just to
check out a part of our tree that doesn't have the modules in it.

Any help is much appreciated!
