Allow me to rephrase. That URL (
http://www.bci2000.org/svn/tags/BCI2000.v2.1) does have a revision 2960. I
can check it out from the repository just fine. I can merge that revision
into a different SVN using "merge range of revisions." What I don't
understand is that if I try to use that URL and revision to merge two
different trees, it throws "'/svn/!svn/bc/2960/tags/BCI2000.v2.1' path not
found", and I simply don't understand where that path is coming from. I
would think I simply didn't understand what merging two different trees did
(and would then need to be in the subversion forums), except that I can
merge from HEAD of that URL, just not from revision 2960. That path
('/svn/!svn/bc/...') looks crazy to me, and I was mostly just curious if
that's a reasonable sort of path or if it's possible this is a TSVN error.

Does that clarify?
