Out-of-date error merging a renamed and replaced file

From: Avi Kivity <avi_at_qumranet.com>

The script below will fail the 'svn merge' command. A developer has
renamed a file and created a new file with the same name in one commit.
Another developer tried merge this change, but subversion (1.3.1) failed.

I googled a bit for the out of date error, but am not sure whether this
is a known issue or not.

Run the script in an empty directory.


# rm -rf testrepo trunk branch

getrev() {
  svn update > /dev/null
  svn info | grep ^Revision: | awk ' { print $2 } '

svnadmin create testrepo

svn mkdir -m 'directory structure' $repo/trunk $repo/branches

svn co $repo/trunk

pushd trunk
  echo blah > file1
  svn add file1
  svn ci -m 'add file1'

svn cp -m 'create branch' $repo/trunk $repo/branches/branch

pushd trunk
  svn mv file1 file2
  echo boo > file1
  svn add file1
  svn ci -m 'mv file1 file2; add file1'

svn co $repo/branches/branch

pushd branch
  svn update
  svn merge -r $rev1:$rev2 $repo/trunk
  svn ci -m 'merge'
