Issues with branches

Hi All,

Recently while doing some experiments with the subversion, I have encountered with an issue while trying to checkout from a branch at a old revision. This branch is no longer present under the current revision, but I was sure that this branch existed within the older revision

My repo layout is as follows at Revision:1

myrepo
 |------ main (My ongoing development branch)
 |------ branches (Used to hold the testing branch)

At revision 4 I had decided to branch the code from main. And the structure after copy was

svn copy http://localhost/repo/myrepo/main http://localhost/repo/myrepo/branches

Now this is at Rev :5

 myrepo
 |------ main
 |------ branches/main

Rev:6 I made changes in branch

Rev:7 Made the same changes in main

Rev: 8 removed branches/main Since we are done with phase 1

Phase 2 development goes and goes and revision in main is 10

Somebody find an issue with the current production code and I had to create a new branch to fix this issue. And I know that this is released from http://localhost/repo/myrepo/branches/main at revision 6:

svn list http://localhost/repo/myrepo/branches/ -r6
main/

I found that branches/main is available in revision 6. So I went ahead and tried to checkout rev:6 from http://localhost/repo/myrepo/branches/

svn co http://localhost/repo/myrepo/branches/main -r6
svn: REPORT request failed on '/repo/myrepo/!svn/bc/10/branches/main'
svn: '/repo/myrepo/!svn/bc/10/branches/main' path not found

But I can checkout by svn co http://localhost/repo/myrepo/branches/ -r6

svn co http://localhost/repo/myrepo/branches/ -r6
A branches/main
A branches/main/src
A branches/main/src/com
A branches/main/src/com/A.java
Checked out revision 6.

It gave me an exact copy of what was there at Revision: 6

I was able to copy the branches/main at rev:6 into a new branch

svn copy http://localhost/repo/myrepo/branches/main -r6 http://localhost/repo/myrepo/branches/bugfix -m "bug fix"

I am confused at this point why it didn't allowed me to checkout from rev:6 using the url http://localhost/repo/myrepo/branches/main

It would be highly appreciable if somebody could explain on this

Thanks,
Deepesh
