Re: Reducing "out-of-date" errors - another way?

Read the section on 'mixed revisions' at the end of chapter 2 in the
svnbook. In summary, there are only two restrictions going on:

  * you may not delete a file or directory which is out-of-date.
  * you may not commit a propchange to a directory which isn't at HEAD.

I think you're imagining that there are many more restrictions, but
there aren't. :-)

(Note that while the 2nd restriction is very specifically about having
a local revision equal to HEAD, the first restriction is not; it's
fine to delete something not at HEAD, so long as the latest version in
the repository is identical.)
