RE: Deficiency in Subversion - restore breaks working copies

I don't have time for a longer reply, but the thing I just ran into was that
the restored repository was revision #209, and the working copies were at
#222. Thus, all working copies were broken when I restored the backup,
because they were a later version.

So, yes, everyone can check out a new working copy, but then they have to
manually merge their changed files into it... or the admin has to gather all
the best bits from the working copies, and manually merge them in... you see
the mire here. I'm thinking this could be automated, at least partially. Or
at least anticipated, and a robust process recommended for application in
this situation.
