Hi Rodrigo, thanks for the links, did you solve the problem? Is there
another solution to fix it on a client side (i.e. provide some SVN
configuration file to skip these files during update)?

Please anybody delete the *website/newsitems/Jun-28.html* file :).

I guess it would be the best if someone will install in the repository
something like sripts in [1] which will prevent SVN server to create 2
files different only by case.

Best regards,
