[TSVN] Re: 'File already exists' error message

Are you saying that the user may have renamed the file, only changing case,
before doing the commit, then chosen to Add the file when committing ?

If not, what would be a reasonable sequence for this error message ?

OK, I see another common situation. The user attempts to add a file which
another user has added and already committed, without having done an Update
in the meantime. Makes sense.

Thanks for your help !

The message already says it. The file that the person is trying to commit
already exists in the repository.
I'm afraid you ran into a case rename conflict. You had a file named
"Java.jar" and now it's called "java.jar". Tell the person to run an update
of his / her working copy first. Use the repository browser to check if the
file exists in the repository. Search the faq at
http://tortoisesvn.berlios.de for 'case rename'
