RE: Renaming directories in repo?

HI Constantin,

I believe you have requested subversion to update your working copy.

It's just incidental that you have renamed a directory. Subversion does
not know this. It is just "following orders" and updating your working
directory as requested. Which would require a delete of your existing
directory and getting you a fresh copy of a new directory (ie your
renamed directory)

So be careful, any change your colleagues have done in their working
copy will be lost.

Thanks
Lakshman
