Re: Question regarding merging branches

From: Dylan Cuthbert <dylan_at_q-games.com>

After more testing, I tried modifying the branch's Makefile again and I
committed that. The version no. rose to 1381. The trunk's last commit was

I then go to the trunk's Makefile and type svn update, it says the version
is 1381.

Now I try the merge again

 $ svn merge -r 1378:1381
http://svnserver/svn/repo/branches/test-branch/projects .
svn: Working copy not locked
svn: directory not locked ()

What does it mean? Something to do with running the cygwin versions of the

Anyway, I continue persevering and discover that if I issue the command from
the directory above it works *and* I get a conflict at last:

 $ svn merge -r 1378:1381
http://svnserver/svn/repo/branches/test-branch/projects projects
C projects/Makefile

However, I have a RIDICULOUS amount of files in the directory now:

Is this normal behaviour or is something screwed up with the cygwin port?
The docs say that 3 files should exist and they are cleaned up by "svn
resolve xx". The above files aren't cleaned up when I type svn resolve

Anyway, can someone explain why there is a difference in behaviour between
using "." and a directory specification?
