Re: svn rm

If I remember correctly --

$svn add <file>

$svn rm <file>
should fail as its not been into DB yet. now,

$svn rm --force <file>
should remove the lock (perhaps tag or whatever...) it has on the file
and make it a free file.

I was rm'ing some files yesterday (with --force option) and
accidentally got one of my local files which has not been added. In
either case I think it is safe that svn rm --force should only act on
the files in the repository and not on the local files.

PS: Thanks guys!
