Re: [TSVN] Unable to branch because "Working copy is out of date"

From: Joseph Galbraith <galb_at_vandyke.com>

If I remember correctly, I was getting this error when
the branch target didn't exist. In my case, I was
entering

   svn+ssh://myrepo/myrepopath/users/xyzzy/Branches/mynewbranch

and it should have been:

   svn+ssh://myrepo/myrepopath/users/xyzzy/branches/mynewbranch

(lowercase branches)

Hope this helps.

Thanks,

Joseph
