More Information - Path Too Long
As it turns out, the problem with the checkout I was trying to do
earlier today was that the overall path (where I store the repo plus the
path in the repo) was over 260 characters, more than Windows can handle,
according to this:
It's frightening that it came to that, but when you've your repo stored
on your HD, and deep within client folders, you have a JavaDoc API which
has its own deep set of folders ... voila.
If it's possible to have SVN check for such a thing and give a cleaner
error message without polluting a cross-platform codebase, then I'd be
more than happy to recommend that - it would have been nice to have SVN
warn me about the path length rather than giving an error that implies I
can't get around a corrupted .svn file.
Just thought I'd point it out now that I've figured it out.
