This got me stoned for a while... here are the facts.
When i do an svn update the removed branches in the repository are not
deleted in my working copy,
even if there are no changes in my WC.
this is my repo layout and detailed explation of what are the sytoms.
.../branches (big ugly branches)
.../branches/test (private development branches)
Into P1/branches/test/ branches come and go fast.(with a very short
live: lets say one or two days live) and then are svn deleted!
And there is this guy (project manager) that did a svn co svn:Project
(he needs all the project on his laptop when traveling traveling)
so he got:
A couple of days later my-dev-task, his-dev-task, and other-dev-task are
forever gone (after merging :-)).
when he does a svn update on WC he gets lots of stuff printed on screen
and i mean looots of it. These are regular svn output, the regular thing.
but please, notice there still
Which i did svn delete myself, and that do not show on svn:list
so his WC layout keeps getting larger.
OK. I did find the (problem?)
Deep into trunk there is one svn:external pointing to another repo.
son into the WC he got
which does still exists.
And svn update deletes everything else in the WC, but no the deeply
nested Project2 folder, neither its contens.
so i have read svn help update (yes, i finally did so) and didn't find
anything that looked like (and delete svn:externals while updating)
I was expecting those branches (my-dev-task, his-dev-task,
other-dev-task) to be deleted deleted on the svn update.
I do even think they sould be deleted (if there are no local changes in
I know svn is tring to protect the data, but an up-to-date w/out local
copy of the Project2 is no useful data, neither 3 extracopies of it.
Should a --remove-externals-wc or something alike be added to the svn
Is there any other way to get this automated?
Is there anything i'm missing here?
What would you expect?
Thanks a lot.
Sorry i did some reposting with a better sounding subject here.
