Re: problems copying and removing a directory

Maybe I'm simply having trouble grasping the concepts involved. (coming from
cvs and not used to this ability to copy directories around)

Surely, the svn client should recognise that the directory has been deleted
and simply tell me that? If the directory has been mv'd then it'd be nice
if it told me where it was last moved. As it stands, a remote user wouldn't
know where to begin to fix the error. What is the correct "official" course
of action in such a case?
