if you do this, then the link in your working copy is deleted (in your
working copy and not in the repository). After the next svn update
command the link appears against in the working copy. You can not delete
the link in the repository with context menu commands from tortoise.

Normaly if you are working with links the commands mv, rm ... they
works to the links not on the link targets.
using the commandline tool svn
the following command: svn delete linktofoo
deletes the link and not the link target this behavior is ok.
kdesvn does the same as the commandline tool svn
the repobrowser from tortoise deletes the link and not the link target
The exception is the tortoise context menu.

A another problem is: if you want to add an link with the context menu
it doesnt work -> the link target will be added to the repository. ->
its nok
The next svn commit command (in tortoise context menu) the link appears
as an unversioned file you can select an add it to the repository. ->
its ok.

Please discuss the behavior from tortoise context menu with other
Thanks a lot


PS tortoise svn is a nice tool
