Can you give us a URL for what you're reading? Probably you're
referring to something in the book at svnbook.red-bean.com, but that
is not the only Subversion vendor branch documentation around (it's
not even the only book :-) ! ).

In a private mail, EricTheElk <erictheelk@gmx.at> told me you were
referring to this:

   http://svnbook.red-bean.com/en/1.1/svn-book.html#svn-ch-7-sect-4

Is that right?

If so, I don't understand the procedure there either. Specifically,
the claim that "The missing files are files that were in 1.0 but not
in 1.1, and on those paths we run svn remove" seems bogus. The files
wouldn't be marked as missing, they'd just be untouched, as you
pointed out.

The instructions there seem to have been committed in r9659, based on
material in r5111, both by cmpilato. I'm not sure how to interpret
the instructions. I've rethreaded this mail to indicate that there
might be a doc bug here. Mike?

For now, I think you (Gili) might want to use the svn_load_dirs.pl
script mentioned in that section. I haven't done much vendor branch
work with Subversion so I don't have more specific advice to offer,
sorry.
