RE: 1.5: Error when creating a tag from a working copy

thanks for this.

I probably don't have the skills and svn internals knowledge to work on
this issue (which seems tricky according to the analysis I read on the
thread), nor do I know any svn developper. I'm just a user who searched
on the web for an explanation on the bug I encountered.

So, I'll just wait, and hope to see it fixed in a future release.
In the meantime, the workaround is to 'svn update' the whole directory
in which a file was updated or commited.

Searching in the issue tracker for part of the error message, I find
issue #3119 <http://subversion.tigris.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=3119>
("File already exists" when it obviously doesn't") which looks like the
same issue although there was previously no reproduction recipe for it.

I have added links to the email thread where debugging was started, and
have attached the Unix version of the reproduction recipe (from that
thread) for convenience. Feel free to add anything else.

Thank you for bringing this issue to our attention. Now, if you know
anybody who would like to work on it, that would be wonderful and people
here would be glad to help.
