Re: Branch/tag fails

Hi Sean,

That path seems to be a bit weird. What system is this on? If it's
Windows, I believe the correct syntax for a file:// locator is:

file:///C:/SVN/repository/path/trunk

Where obviously C: is your drive letter, SVN is the first folder in
the path, and all \ converted to /.

If it's UNIX or Linux, paths don't have \ characters so it should all be /:

file:///svn/repository/path/trunk

Where svn is the first folder in the path.

I could be wrong, however as our SVN server is UNIX-based and I've
never used SVN on Windows.
