Re: problems copying and removing a directory

Hi there,

Must've pushed the wrong key and deleted it because I wrote an additional
sentence with the back-story.. strange.

Sorry anyway, after checking out both trees I svn cp'd blob from
repo/john/blob to repo/john/blob2 and then svn rm --force'd repo/john/blob -
the reason I used force is because I had non-repository files in there left
over from a compile. Does the force has adverse side-effects?

After doing this when I try to commit or update the "other" blob directory
(1376) I get the error below.

Regards
