Hi,

Thanks for clearing up my confusion.

I did a svn up and svn commit. Same problem.

I did a svn revert on the file (after copying the contents to a a new file)

Everything looked fine.

I opened up the reverted file and pasted in the code that I previously
copied.

Tried to svn commit

Same problem.

svn: Commit failed (details follow):
svn: Your file or directory 'ItemActionImpl.java' is probably out-of-date
svn: The version resource does not correspond to the resource within the
transaction. Either the requested version resource is out of date
(needs to be updated), or the requested version resource is newer than
the transaction root (restart the commit)
