I'm wondering what the restrictions on file types there are with the SVN. Clearly LUA, TGA, TOC, etc are allowed but are other text files allowed as well?
Most file types are permitted. Specifically, the file types that you may not commit are anything that are executable or have an executable flag, such as files with the EXE, BAT, COM, SH extensions and probably a few others. You will need to get a moderator to commit/change such files for you.
Perhaps an admin will come along and clarify this.
Where to get a moderator to do so? I need a EXE in my project to download and parse some web information for ingame-display. The EXE is written in C++ and is OpenSource. The SourceCode is viewable on SF. I wasn't able to commit the EXE into the repo of my project and postet a ticket 3 days ago with no response yet.
