Hi Julian,

I don't understand what you mean regarding deletes. It seems that
Subversion already handles deletes, both scheduled in the WC or coming
from the REPOS during an update, switch, or checkout. Was there a
specific scenario you had in mind where it doesn't do what you want?

Regarding moves (and copies): A WC->WC move or copy results in a path
scheduled for addition with history. If this path obstructs an addition
or deletion from the repository during an up/sw/co wouldn't we want to
simply prevent that outright? If we do allow it, what would the expected
behavior be? For example:

svn co file:///home/burba/repos/greek \home\burba\wcs\greek
A \home\BURBA\wcs\greek\A
A \home\BURBA\wcs\greek\A\B
A \home\BURBA\wcs\greek\A\B\lambda
A \home\BURBA\wcs\greek\A\B\E
A \home\BURBA\wcs\greek\A\B\E\alpha
A \home\BURBA\wcs\greek\A\B\E\beta
A \home\BURBA\wcs\greek\A\B\F
A \home\BURBA\wcs\greek\A\mu
A \home\BURBA\wcs\greek\A\C
A \home\BURBA\wcs\greek\A\D
A \home\BURBA\wcs\greek\A\D\gamma
A \home\BURBA\wcs\greek\A\D\G
A \home\BURBA\wcs\greek\A\D\G\pi
A \home\BURBA\wcs\greek\A\D\G\rho
A \home\BURBA\wcs\greek\A\D\G\tau
A \home\BURBA\wcs\greek\A\D\H
A \home\BURBA\wcs\greek\A\D\H\chi
A \home\BURBA\wcs\greek\A\D\H\omega
A \home\BURBA\wcs\greek\A\D\H\psi
Checked out revision 1.

svn cp -m "" file:///home/burba/repos/greek/A/D/G

Committed revision 2.

svn cp \home\burba\wcs\greek\A\D\H \home\burba\wcs\greek\I
A \home\BURBA\wcs\greek\I

If we now updated \home\burba\wcs\greek what would you see the appropriate
behavior as?

In this patch I've interpreted the "obvious trivial way" to mean:

* An obstructing directory scheduled for addition without history is
simply tolerated and reported as 'E'xisting.

* An obstructing file scheduled for addition without history is merged
with the file coming from the repos. But since the text-base for the WC
file is empty (it's really not under version control yet despite having a
record in entires) we are merging the diff between an empty file and the
WC file and an empty file and the REPOS file. This means that the only
possible outcomes are identical files (again reported with 'E'xists) or a

A patch to tolerate local additions, within the limitations described
above, is attached. There is one thing left undone: prop merges, I'm
working on that now, but I want to get some thoughts on my approach so

If anyone has suggestions, corrections, rants, raves, reviews, etc.,
please let me know, thanks,

Enable up/sw/co to tolerate obstructions scheduled for addition without

It's no longer an error when an update, switch, or checkout attempts to
add a
path that is already scheduled for addition *without* history in the WC.

In the case of dirs, the directory is tolerated and reported as

For files, if the obstruction is identical to the addition from the repos
is reported as 'E'xisting, if it differs it's treated as a conflict.

Obstructions scheduled for addition with history still result in an error.

* subversion/libsvn_wc/update_editor.c
  (file_baton): New member add_existed.
  (make_file_baton): Initialize new file_baton member.
  (prep_directory): Retrieve *svn_wc_adm_access_t if attempt to open it
  fails due to locked WC.
  (add_directory): Revamp tests of valid obstructions to add coming from
  repos to allow obstructions scheduled for addition without history.
  If dir is scheduled for addition without history, change the schedule in
  its parent and its own "this dir" entry to normal. Also change the
  "this dir" rev from 0 to the target revision. And lastly, use the
  'E'xists notification for obstructing adds without history.
  (add_or_open_file): Revamp tests of valid obstructions to add coming
  repos to allow obstructions scheduled for addition without history. Set
  new file_baton member to true if appropriate.
  (merge_file): New argument 'add_existed'. If file is scheduled for
  without history, change its entry schedule to normal and create an empty
  text-base for it. Update the "matrix" and change it's implementation so
  obstructions scheduled for addition w/o history are merged.
  (close_file): Pass new file_baton member to merge_file() so it knows
  obstruction is added w/o history. Report the file as 'E'xisting if the
  merge didn't conflict.

* subversion/tests/cmdline/checkout_tests.py
  (forced_checkout_with_versioned_obstruction): Tweak expected error
  to reflect changes in add_or_open_file.
  (co_with_obstructing_local_adds): New test.
  (test_list): Run new test.

* subversion/tests/cmdline/switch_tests.py
  (forced_switch_failures): Tweak expected error to reflect new error
  (switch_with_obstructing_local_adds): New test.
  (test_list): Run new test.

* subversion/tests/cmdline/update_tests.py
  (update_receive_illegal_name, forced_update_failures): Tweak expected
  errors to reflect new error messages.
  (update_with_obstructing_additions): New test.
  (test_list): Run new test.
