Ok, here's an updated version of Paul's patch that includes enough
magic to make move_file_within_moved_dir pass. The problem was that
the contents of a directory that is moved are marked as copied, but
don't have copyfrom urls. You need to catch this case, and if it
happens climb back up to the parent dir of the src path and see if it
has a copyfrom url, etc. I suspect something similar needs to be done
for directories, which will make the last test pass, but I haven't
looked into it yet.


Allow copy/move files that already copied.

* subversion/libsvn_wc/copy.c:
  (copy_file_administratively, copy_dir_administratively): Use source's
   copyfrom-url and copyfrom-rev instead of url and rev when copying or
   moving already copied files or directories. When copying directories,
   set the URL entry in the destination directories "this dir" entries
   record to the source's copyfrom-url, if there is one, otherwise climb
   up to their parent directory looking for one. XXX do this for

* subversion/tests/cmdline/copy_tests.py
  (copy_copied_file_and_dir, move_copied_file_and_dir,
   move_moved_file_and_dir, move_file_within_moved_dir,
   move_dir_within_moved_dir): New tests.
