But you do want those mods to go to /tags/westlake_111 ?

Ah, yes. Try this:

In directory D:\test\westlake
$ svn copy . http://p1/repos/tags/westlake_111

No, because subversion checks to see if you are talking about versioned resources. This
could be viewed as a bug, since d:\test\westlake is certainly a working copy, although d:\test
is not (which is why the is_working_copy check is failing).
