So you wanted to create a branch of trunk to /branches/Vendordrops.

svn copy http://server/trunk http://branches/Vendordrops

Now: since Vendordrops already exists, Subversion automatically copies
your trunk folder *inside* the Vendordrops folder.

(that's the behaviour of the Linux 'copy' command).

I know this is not what you expect. And that's why I opened the issue.

of course. Then you copy trunk to branches/Vendordrops (a copy is like a
rename, without the source being removed).
