Actually, it seems that filesystems can be converted to case-sensitive even after creation. Anyhow, I didn't want it to seem that tla can't work on Mac OS X.

This one isn't exactly an arch problem. tla is letting you know that a problem exists (although I suppose it could be more specific). There aren't any tools that would allow both of those files to exist in the same directory on that filesystem, so something's got to give.

Most of my tla use is on Mac OS X. The only problem I've had is interacting with users who had conflicting category names in different archives where I wouldnt' expect there to be a conflict. Problems within the source tree itself are going to be there.

        What would CVS do in this case, BTW?

I've put up a page called "Filesystem Considerations" on the wiki. It describes the pros/cons of the filesystems I know about.

Cool. Any clue how to add case sensitivity on an existing filesystem? That'd be worth trying and a lot easier than backing up and restoring this 80% full 60GB HDD a couple of times (hopefully, I'd only need the backup step). Everything important *should* be backed up, of course...
