[RFC] Issue 2269 - svn st|up Do Not Warn When Ran Against a Nonexistent Path

From: Jeremy Whitlock <jcscoobyrs_at_gmail.com>

Hi All,
    As I was going over issue 2269, I realize that there were a few
edge cases that kept me from submitting my patch for submission that
might not be issues after all. Basically, the patch attached to issue
2269 handles the simple scenarios:


The reason I didn't submit it for review was that for some reason, I
was worried about the following two scenarios:

1) svn st -u NONEXISTENT_PATH (Where the path doesn't exist in the WC
but does exist in the repository.)
2) svn up NONEXISTENT_PATH (Where the path doesn't exist in the WC but
does exist in the repository.)

The more I think about this now, I think both of these should be
handled like any other non-existent path, just like svn rm which
outputs an error:

svn: 'NONEXISTENT_PATH' does not exist

If that is the case, I could go back over the patch, update it for bit
rot, recreate and submit with minor changes. If this patch should
indeed handle the edge cases differently, there is still more work to
do. Either way, I'm working on this issue again and would love some
feedback so I can wrap it up. Here is a direct link to the issue for
those interested in reading the issue comments:


Take care,
Jeremy Whitlock
