Re: Problems in adding a subdirectory to directory

Hi, you should send requests-for-help to users@subversion.tigris.org
in the future. This list is for the discussion of subversion's own
development.

The "L" means that the working copy was interrupted in the process of
working, and only 'svn cleanup' can finish the work. It has nothing
to do with the 'svn lock/unlock' commands, which is an entirely
different sort of lock. If 'svn cleanup' did not remove the 'L' code,
then resend your mail to the users@ list and someone can help dive
deeper into the problem.
