Ok. I have a folder containing one file. I checked it into my
repository. Say this file is my first version of httpd.config.

Now I formatted my HD and installed a new linux version. I manually
created a new httpd.config locally and I want to add it to my
repository as second version of that httpd.config.

Obviously I have to make my new local folder a working copy (put under
svn control). But I don't wan't svn to overwrite my second version with
the first version when checking out.

I am quite shure that did work in 0.28 or 0.26. I used it a lot.

When this feature is removed, can I have it back? I mean the syntax:
svn checkout http://IP:Port/path_to_my_file/ .

when it just put then uncontrolled local folder under svn control but
does not get any files out of the repository ?

It was very useful.

For the moment, is there a workaround I could use right now?

Thank you for help!
Robert
