Re: Explorer Copy Issues

Thank you for the prompt reply John.

I follow what you are saying, and even how to resolve it (remove
the .svn or simply do an export to a newly folder). Defaulting the
export path to the current path, as a recent post suggested goes a
long way to make this easier on the user.

Every folder is it's own entity and I understand why that causes this
issue.

But for users who cannot see hidden files and may not even have any
svn tools installed (say a shared network drive), this quickly creates
directories that will never get flagged or noticed by those of us that
do. Not suggesting a change of default behavior, but it does seem
counter intuitive that it shouldn't be addressed in one manner or
another.

The details in Directory_A\entries should be enough to say 'There is a
folder here that was not here before'. I did a lot of searching before
I posted this (as it bit me recently), and it seems to be a fairly
regular confusion. It seems that a command to check that the tree of
entries is consistent would make sense for these cases.

I don't mind poking through the code, but it sounds from your reply
like this is a design stance? Thoughts?
