I believe this is a documentation bug. YOURACCOUNT.TXT is an owner account with RC rights on folders.
If you do as said, the server will create a Kuji file for the account, with normal user rights, rather than use the Kuji.txt file.
Kuji.txt will be ignored. At least that what happened for me on 2.4 released version.
I intend to rename YOURACCOUNT.TXT to YOURACCOUNT in svn, and change the comment for Kuji rather than Kuji.txt
I am afraid I do have commit access. Unless it changed very recently without me knowing. I almost expect my rights to disappear because my recent posts.
But I think I did had the same problem with released 2.4 about one year and a half ago. But looking to the logs, the code did not seems to have changed since at least before 2.4, so I don’t know.
It sounds like you have Windows Explorer set to hide file extensions. ACCOUNTNAME.txt is how accounts are stored. The instructions are correct, although they should probably mention a thing or two about file extensions. If you have file extensions hidden, you would only see “YOURACCOUNT” without the .txt extension. If you then renamed it to “YOURACCOUNT.txt”, the actual file name would be “YOURACCOUNT.txt.txt”. At least, that is what I think is going on with you.
