Subversion, which is my new favorite
source control system, creates a hidden folder when you do a checkout called ".svn".
And for some reason, VS.NET will not tolerate a folder that begins with a period in
a web project.
It works fine for Class Library projects. It works fine for Windows Forms projects.
But when you use a Web Project, it says, "Refreshing the project failed. Unable to
retrieve folder information from the server."
And to make matters worse, this is a known
bug. I hate things like this. There is absolutely no good reason for this rule.
