Re: What is this text status: "incomplete"? (Commit problem)

  OK, we are getting the same problem. We have a repository recursively
checked out, but occasionally someone gets this message. If I try to
commit, I see an 'incomplete' folder. If I try to update the parent
folder, it fails trying to create a subfolder that already exists.
This subfolder already exists, but it is checked out. Why is it trying
to re-create the folder? The only way I can fix it is to rename the
subfolder, do an update (which re-creates the subfolder and its contents),
then copy any changes I made from my renamed copy. Then I can commit the
  One change that happened since I last updated, is someone else
created a sub-subfolder and added it to the repository. But I should
be able to do an update, and this sub-subfolder should just be created,
no? I'm wondering if we are doing something wrong, how we can fix the
problem, and if there is maybe a bug that we discovered.

"incomplete" means the folder was not checked out completely (maybe not
recursively?). Subversion knows that there should be more subfolders
than there actually are, and that's why the status is "incomplete".
